2K Promises "Most Realistic" Boxing GameDon King Presents: Prizefighter is apparently "the most realistic boxing video game simulation", according to 2K Sports.
It’s also said, "This in-depth, documentary-style title will provide the deepest, most authentic and entertaining experience ever seen in a boxing video game."
Prizefighter’s currently in development at Venom Games - behind Rocky Legends and, technically, Rocky (Venom Games boasts ex Rage staffers amongst its ranks) - for Xbox 360, Wii and DS and is due next spring.
According to first details on the game players, in addition to punching faces, will establish a boxing career, train and promote. Ultimately the goal is to win and defend the title belt, we’re informed, with a central storyline knitting things together.
Quite if legendary crazy-haired boxing promoter Don King is involved beyond his name being used in the title isn’t explained, but he has offered this quote on the game:
"In all my years working in professional boxing, I have never seen anything come as close to recreating the thrill, the intensity, the courage and the spectacle of the sport.
"Don King Presents: Prizefighter is more than a game - it is a glimpse at what life is like in and out of the ring for these incredible athletes."
