Real Boxing on PS Vita Enters the Ring September 17th for $9.99

Jan Chichlowski's Avatar Posted by Brand Manager, Vivid Games

Update: Real Boxing now confirmed to launch on September 17th in the United States.

Here at Vivid Games we do like a fight. The art team is terrible at making teas and coffees – so that often ends in fisticuffs. The sound guys are always making too much noise – and with the recent warm weather that’s meant we’ve been extra grumpy, so often their racket has ended in a punch-up. And as for the management team? Well they are often throwing their weight around – so the rest of us really enjoy punching them in the face.

Not in real life, obviously. Fortunately, as the developer and publisher of Real Boxing, we’re able to settle any disputes we have in the virtual ring. And we’re really excited to reveal that you guys will be able to do the same on PS Vita on September 17th, for $9.99.

As the name suggests, Real Boxing is a boxing simulation game where you’ll create a boxer and take him on a journey from amateur to pro. There are also a multitude of other modes and features including multiplayer so you can touch gloves remotely with friends. There will also be regular tournaments based on leaderboard rankings, so there’s always a new challenge ahead. Boxing games seem to be rather few and far between, so we’re really proud to be bringing the first console styled boxing simulation to PS Vita – the sport is the purest form of one-on-one combat, making this a highly strategic type of game.

Real Boxing is powered by the Unreal Engine 3, so it certainly looks the business (we’re slightly biased, I know, but hopefully you’ll agree). It allows us to really make you feel every bone-crunching blow, see every drop of sweat and spatter of blood just like a real boxing match, just without actually getting hurt because trust me, that bit is no fun. Your boxers are completely customizable too. You can choose from of a range of hairstyles, tattoos, boots and stats to make the character all your own from the laces up.

We’d like to quickly thank Sony, who has been incredibly supportive. It has been a pleasure to work with PS Vita’s tech to make Real Boxing look and feel everything we want it to. We’re really chuffed with it, and I hope you guys like it. With any luck, I may be able to go a few rounds with you when the game comes out.

The punching animations to me, did not look fluid; more arcade-ish. Ready to Rumble comes to mind.

I might pick it up for 10.

    The 0.99 $ price is a summer sale. It is fair to say that the iOS/Android price is between 0.99 and 4.99 $. We do not rule out price changes in the future and this includes VITA version.

Man I thought I was the only one who felt that way about Victorious Boxers! Both “ippos road to glory” and “Fighting spirit” are indeed the greatest boxing games ever made. You gotta check out the anime as well its also great.

Hi All,

Indeed the VITA version is more expensive. However the VITA version is not just a simple port of the mobile version. It gives you much more content when compared to the mobile e.g.:

• New modes/features
• The multiplayer, online and ad-hoc with a brand new tournament mode/system, exclusive to Vita.
• Vita specific controls such as tilt and touch controls and Near functionality

• No in-app purchases, all areans are unlocked

• Better graphics – the Vita version looks much better with enhanced shaders, lighting, character models

• The new controls really make the game feel new and different and allows much more depth to the fighting

The Vita version is the best version of Real Boxing. It has much more content so more customisation options, better enemy AI, more gameplay options (such as multiplayer), better combo system, deeper fighting …
We believe it is worth the advertised price.

Hope this clarifies.
