Vivid Games have announced that Real Boxing will be released for the PlayStation Vita via the PlayStation Store in August.
Real Boxing features a fantastic simulation of the sport and is powered by the Unreal Engine 3. Players will take a journey from amateur to pro in one of the most comprehensive sporting games ever delivered in a handheld.
The boxers in the game have been detailed fantastically designed from the laces up to be as realistic as possible. Each boxer has been motion captured in the ring, with every punch, every jab, every jaw-shattering uppercut portrayed in stunning definition. Real-time deformation technology portrays fighters’ facial injuries in gory detail, bones crunching as punches fly, a mist of sweat and blood filling the ring.
Real Boxing uses intuitive controls making perfect use of the PlayStation Vita’s physical and touch capabilities, Real Boxing offers a host of single, career and training modes with which to perfect your boxing style. Virtually every aspect of your fighter can be customised – from hairstyle to boots to your own tattoos, you’re free to express yourself how you prefer.
Opponents will also have a different style showcasing the PlayStation Vita’s power. Real-time commentary and a dynamic crowd provide the full atmosphere of the big fight, with slow-motion replays allowing you to relive particularly dramatic moments over and over.
Remi Koscielny, CEO, Vivid Games stated:
“With the exception of the cardiovascular benefits or the threat of actual, physical pain, Real Boxing is exactly that – real boxing, We’ve crammed everything fans love about the sport of boxing into the Vita, making it one of the most comprehensive sports titles available for the system. We cannot wait to throw our hat into the ring this August.”
