Boxing is an amazing sport. Say what you will about grown men duking it out until their faces look like raw hamburger meat, but there is truly a sweet science and amazing amount of intellect that goes into performing at the sport’s highest levels. Sure, Mike Tyson may not look like a card carrying MENSA member, but his procedural intelligence inside of the ring was only undercut by his tenacity to destroy the competition. However, the issue has always existed that there was no way to fight as the legendary figures of boxing on the iOS… until NOW!
Electronic Arts has just announced that they will be bringing the next iteration in their award winning Fight Night series, to the iOS. Though details are a bit hard to come by at this moment, they did let a few details slip:
FEEL LIKE YOU’RE IN THE RING With fluid touch controls, every tap, flick and gesture keeps your boxer ducking, weaving, jabbing, and moving around the ring ̶ just like you were there yourself. With full audio commentary from Joe Tessitore.
FRIENDS BECOME FOES Measure your skills against your friends in a Multiplayer fight via local Wifi or Bluetooth. Feel the rush of adrenaline as you lay your friend’s boxer out, or the agony of a right hook to your boxer’s jaw. Make it personal.
Aside from the feeling of landing yourself in the heart of the ring, the outstanding roster of boxing legends will aid in further enforcing the authenticity. Featuring the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, and the aforementioned Mike Tyson, you will even get the chance to step into the ring as the greatest of all time: Mohammad Ali!
It is hard not to get excited about a game like this, especially given how under represented the sport is in the App Store. Check out some of the screenshots below and see if you feel the same way!
