Have you heard of Supremacy MMA? Yes there is a third kid on the MMA block to compete with UFC Undisputed and EA Sports MMA, and he now has a new face with Jens Pulver. Hitting this summer on the 360 and PS3, Supremacy MMA looks to bring a side of MMA that boasts the brutal and bloody, which is a bit of a departure from the other two current franchises that work to promote it as a legitimate sport. Global video game publisher 505 Games and Los Angeles video game developer Kung Fu Factory announced today that former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver will lend his likeness in order to help go beyond what you see on television and tell more of a backstory to the world of MMA. This MMA fan is looking forward to see how this new franchise stacks up pound for pound.
“Supremacy MMA is as much about telling the fighter’s story as it is about delivering blistering-fast gameplay that’s as brutal as the real thing, so we knew we had to get Jens for our game,” said Ian Howe, president of 505 Games. “His climb through the ranks of the underground into the pro spotlight and his willingness to continue to fight regardless of what title he bears exemplifies the fighter’s heart that Supremacy MMA portrays.”
“After spending years working on MMA and fighting titles ranging from the original UFC game for Dreamcast to UFC Undisputed 2009, Supremacy MMA is definitely the game the team has always wanted to make and Kung Fu Factory is beyond excited to have Jens be a part of it,” said Ricci Rukavina, co-founder and executive producer, Kung Fu Factory. “Because we’ve shaped our own underground world, we’re able to have total creative freedom. We’re excited to go beyond the television screen to tell stories like Jens – real fighters, who have made a difference in the sport, peoples lives and beyond.
