505 Games Announces Supremacy MMA

The ring keeps getting more crowded. 505 Games today announced their entry in the increasingly competitive MMA subgenre, Supremacy MMA. The game is being developed by Kung Fu Factory, a studio filled with people who have worked on titles such as the Dreamcast UFC game, the Warriors, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Scarface, and UFC Undisputed 2009.

"We're excited to partner with 505 Games to launch the Supremacy MMA brand," said Ricci Rukavina, Kung Fu Factory's creative director. "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."

It should be interesting to see if that passion translates into a decent game. THQ has enjoyed success with its UFC Undisputed games, and EA Sports is readying its own MMA game for later this year. It's a competitive field, which could be great news for gamers. It certainly gives developers an incentive to bring their absolute best work to the table. What remains to be seen is how receptive MMA fans are to having so many games in such a short release window.
