Electronic Arts recently announced that EA Canada is currently developing [i]Fight Night Round 4[/i] under the EA Sports brand. The excellent [i]Fight Night Round 3[/i] was developed by the now disbanded EA Chicago, so EA Canada has some pretty big shoes to fill. Luckily, it seems like the new developers are up to the tall task with the recent announcement that "Iron" Mike Tyson will be in the game (now if they could only get Jack Johnson in the game and cut down on all the damn in-game advertisement).
An Electronic Arts press release reads, "Featuring a re-written gameplay engine, [i]EA SPORTS Fight Night Round 4[/i] will add a variety of fighting styles and boxer differentiation to authentically emulate the greatest fighters of all time. Pressure your opponent with the brawling inside style of young Mike Tyson, bobbing and weaving to set up powerful hooks and uppercuts. Capitalize on Muhammad Ali’s reach, hand speed and fleetness of foot to bewilder your opponent with lightning fast jabs and straights from the outside. For the first time in history, [i]EA SPORTS Fight Night Round 4[/i] gives you the opportunity to pit these legendary heavyweights against one another and name a true champ."
[i]EA SPORTS Fight Night Round 4[/i] is being developed for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and is scheduled to ship to retailers in 2009.
