505 Games has long been in the developing games industry, producing some of the more high-profile games such as IL2-Sturmovik, Cooking Mama, ArmA: Armed Assault, ArmA II, and most recently Backbreaker. Today 505 games and Kung Fu Factory have announced that they’re stepping in to the big boy league by announcing a direct competitor to EA Sports MMA and THQ’s UFC Undisputed series, que the spotlight for Supremacy.
Supremacy MMA is promising to raise the bar in the MMA space with a level of fluid combat, intuitive controls all being centred under the watchful eye of some of the development team that were behind the original UFC:
“We’re excited to partner with 505 Games to launch the Supremacy MMA brand,” said Ricci Rukavina, creative director for Kung Fu Factory.
“Kung Fu Factory’s vision is to make an MMA game that is as authentic and realistic as possible that will introduce an entirely new type of experience to gamers. The team has an enormous amount of passion for the genre and has been relentlessly researching every aspect of the sport to deliver an MMA game unlike any other. When gamers play Supremacy MMA, we think it will absolutely knock them out.”
He goes on to say they’re “aiming for the best MMA experience possible”, going into more depth about the controls,
“Years of honing our proprietary animation tools and technology have put us in a unique position to create a groundbreaking MMA game,”
“Our vision is to adapt real-life martial arts strategies into fun and intuitive game mechanics. We want players to easily be able to enjoy the deep level of satisfaction that comes from mastering MMA techniques.”
“The team at Kung Fu Factory have proven over the years that they are the only studio in America with the expertise to bring a fighting game of this calibre to life”
With UFC Undisputed setting the bar for MMA games and EA Sports MMA due for a release soon Supremacy looks to knock the mouth guard out and take the crown as MMA king. With E3 round the corner gameplay will most likely be shown so be sure to check out Playstation LifeStyle regulary during E3.
