'Bellator: MMA Onslaught' video game available for download today
The first video game release from Bellator Fighting Championships is available today.
"Bellator: MMA Onslaught," an arcade-style MMA game, was announced earlier this year in association with Viacom Entertainment Group's 345 Games and Spike TV.
The game can be downloaded for $15 through the PlayStation Network and XBox Live Arcade.
"Bellator has a roster of many of the world's most exciting fighters, and we are thrilled to work with 345 Games to let fans experience our organization in a whole new way," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney stated earlier this year. "Instead of just watching Michael Chandler's incredible takedowns or Patricky 'Pitbull's' devastating knockout power, fans can now get in the cage with 'Bellator: MMA Onslaught' and either fight with or against Bellator's finest."
According to a release, "gamers can customize their own fighter's look and fighting style to battle the way they want, whether it be Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kickboxing or other styles. The game also shares tips directly from Bellator fighters through exclusive video content as players continue to level-up and gain experience points, allowing them to learn MMA skills in a fun and engaging way."
Bellator: MMA Onslaught" features online play in addition to superfight and tournament modes against a friend or the CPU. The game mirrors Bellator's format, styles, graphics and music.
"It was imperative that we create a mixed martial arts game accessible to all types of players, not just the hardcore MMA fan," 345 Games exec Dan Yang stated. "Fortunately, with 'Bellator: MMA Onslaught,' the player doesn't need a doctorate in gaming or MMA to enjoy the non-stop action and excitement of the game."
