Vivid Games has announced that its boxing sim, Real Boxing, is thumping its way off iOS and Android devices and onto PlayStation Vita. The game will feature the touch controls of the original version as well as physical controls thanks to the Vita’s buttons.
The career mode, character customisation and fighter training have all been brought over from the mobile version and there will also be the chance to take on your friends locally or over the internet in a multiplayer mode. Vivid Games also told Joystiq that there’d be “special tournaments”, although we’re not sure what that might mean.
In career mode, you take your amateur boxer through the ranks with in-game commentary, different fighting styles and loads of customisation options.
The screens look promising – it’s built with Unreal Engine 3 – and it’s a style of game that the Vita hasn’t really seen yet so we’re hopeful for this one. It’s set to be released on Sony’s handheld, worldwide, in August.
