90w ago - Sony Senior Producer Matt McEnerney at 345 Games has outlined Bellator MMA Onslaught details on building a more accessible MMA fighting game.
To quote: You may or may not heard of 345 Games, but we are part of Viacom Entertainment Group, which also houses cable TV channels like Spike TV and Comedy Central.
We've also launched a few recent PSN games such as Deadliest Warrior and Ugly Americans. I wanted to take some time and let you all know that our next title Bellator MMA Onslaught will be arriving to PSN this summer.
Bellator MMA Onslaught is an arcade-style fighting game grounded in the reality of an established MMA brand. If you've never heard of the Bellator Fighting Championships, it's an MMA organization that currently airs on MTV2 but will be moving to Spike TV starting in 2013.
Bellator is unique compared to other MMA leagues in that tournaments are held to determine who fights for the championship belt rather than having promoters select the fighter for a championship match. If you win, you move on.
If you lose, you go home. This philosophy works well in the video game space, where we are used to tournament-style progression...
