Supremacy MMA pummeling PlayStation Vita holiday 2011

Supremacy MMA is all but guaranteed to be the supreme MMA game on at least one platform at launch: the PlayStation Vita. In addition to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, out September 20, publisher 505 Games announced a PlayStation Vita version, due "holiday 2011," thus putting it somewhere within the hardware's launch window.

The Vita version packs exclusive stuff not seen in the console versions, including fighters, venues and undefined "features" exclusive to the handheld version. Sometimes you just need a quick shot of brutal hand-to-hand combat while you're out of the house. At least 505 hopes so.

Supremacy MMA™ Takes the Fight to the Streets with PlayStation®Vita This Fall

The most brutal and only MMA fighting game of 2011 showcases broken bones and unparalleled quantities of bloodshed while taking fans back to the true roots of MMA

Woodland Hills, CA – July 28, 2011-Begin the bloodletting! Global videogame publisher 505 Games and Kung Fu Factory announced today that Supremacy MMA™ will break bones and smash faces on Sony's next-gen portable platform, the PlayStation®Vita this fall. Supremacy MMA for PS Vita will come packing exclusive content including new fighters, venues and features found only on the PS Vita, delivering all the brutality and fast arcade action of the most controversial MMA game in history on the hottest handheld of this generation.

"The Vita provides an unrivaled handheld experience that gives gamers a true console experience on the go," said Ricci Rukavina, CEO of Kung Fu Factory. "Vita's technical innovations and jaw-dropping graphics make this a great platform for our brand of fast paced brutal and bloody combat."

"Supremacy MMA takes MMA where it's never gone before, with unprecedented brutality and arcade speed, and now it's headed for another new frontier as the sole MMA game to go to handheld in 2011," said Ian Howe, President, 505 Games, North America. "The arcade-styled gameplay is perfectly suited for quick handheld sessions, and the game looks amazing on Sony's hot new tech."

Hailed as "...the dirtiest MMA game yet" on the cover of Gamepro (July 2011, Issue 274), and armed with arcade-like speed and real in-game fighters-including former UFC champ Jens Pulver as well as the first real female fighters in an MMA game, Felice Herrig and Michele Gutierrez-Supremacy MMA favors fast-and-furious gameplay and underground aesthetics over boring simulation-style presentation.

Published by 505 Games and developed by Kung Fu Factory, Supremacy MMA raises the bar in the MMA space by bringing an unprecedented level of fast, fluid combat, intuitive controls and true-to-the-sport brutality. Dominating the fighting market this fall, Supremacy MMA will be the only MMA fighting game this year when it bullyies its way onto store shelves on September 20, 2011 for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and then onto PlayStation Vita for Holiday 2011.
