505 Games announced earlier this week that former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver will lend his hard-earned image and story to Supremacy MMA™, coming this summer to the PS3 and 360. The MMA game space has become quite crowded with quality titles from both THQ and EA, so I am interested to see how this game works out. Can they learn from what THQ and EA didn’t do so well and deliver the ultimate MMA game, guess we will just have to wait and see.
Pulver will lend his likeness and backstory to the game, as well as serve as a combat and story consultant. He will also represent the game during a variety of real fights, the first of which will be XFO 38 “Supremacy MMA” on January 22, 2011 in Woodstock, Chicago. The event will be broadcast live exclusively in partnership with GameSpot.
Supremacy MMA brings the brutality of unsanctioned, amateur and unlicensed MMA fighting to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems, favoring fast-and-furious gameplay and underground aesthetics over official branding and television-style presentation. The game raises the bar in the MMA space by bringing an unprecedented level of fast, fluid combat, intuitive controls and true-to-the-sport brutality, telling the story of up-and-coming fighters on their quest for supremacy.
