Game details

On June 1, 2009, Electronic Arts, announced that an all-new fighting title is in development under the EA Sports brand. EA Sports MMA will be available in 2010 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and does not reveal any facts about the gameplay or its release date, just one link to sign up for the EA Sports newsletter and another that directs people to EA Sport's MMA forum.[3]

It was announced that the first trailer would be shown on CBS, during Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers on November 7, 2009. The trailer featured Emelianeko and Rogers performing a variety of attacks and defenses against each other. The trailer ended with both of the men about to punch each other in the face. It was announced that EA MMA would feature Strikeforce as its flagship promotion.[4]

In an article posted on December 15, mentioned the following details:

  • Deals with other MMA promotions, in addition to the announced Strikeforce deal, are "highly likely, including at least one of the big Japanese groups." FSM says one unannounced top fighter "regularly competes in Sengoku Raiden Championship, aka World Victory Road."
  • Venues including both rings and cages. FSM says EA's on the fence about whether restarts will be included for ring fights. (It "might make for jarring gameplay," the article says.)
  • Pride-style rules in addition to standard Unified Rules.
  • The ability to fight southpaw- or orthodox, execute foot stomps and fight on the cage, with deep clinchwork and countering.
  • Mauro Ranallo and Frank Shamrock will be providing commentary.[5]

Organizations

UFC controversy

UFC president Dana White has declared himself "at war" with EA over the development of the game and has threatened to blacklist any fighter who signs on to the project from fighting in the UFC. There are two exceptions to that thus far as Vladimir Matyushenko, a contracted UFC fighter, signed on to be a part of the game before rejoining the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The other is Randy Couture who was under contract with UFC before agreeing to be a part of EA Sports MMA, but is able to take part in the game due to never signing over his likeness to the Ultimate Fighting Championship for use in video games.

Preview

GameZone's Dakota Grabowski was able to find out more on EA Sports MMA, saying "What the team was able to confirm was that refs will never disappear from the match, ring girls will be present, authentic entrances will be put into action (though, they wouldn’t confirm Jason “Mayhem” Miller’s extravagant walk down the runway with models), and corner men will show up during rounds; although no official corner men will be provided. Lastly, they were able confirm that both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will be exactly the same and no planned DLC will be exclusive to either platform."[20]
