Black and Bruised details
With the announcement of Black and Bruised awhile back, we've decided to refresh your memory of this cel-shaded boxing title. The game was initially expected to be released this year for the Playstation 2, but now is slated with an early 2003 ship date. Digital Fiction will definitely be polishing this title with extra time allocated, as this boxing title is shaping up nicely.
The game will feature 18 different boxers and 18 unique arenas that carry their own theme. Black & Bruised will include more than 30 different facial animations, pressure-sensitive controls, skeletal motion and skin morphing. FMV clips will also be present, as outrageous punch sequences will also be featured. There will be five gameplay modes included in the final version of the game including training, single fight, championship, survival, and head-to-head for two players. A variety of camera angles will be present, giving the game a similar look compared to Nintendo's Punch-Out!! series. Stay tuned for more updates.
