2K Sports is entering the boxing ring, having announced development of Don King Presents: Prizefighter today.
Set for a spring 2008 release on Xbox 360, Wii and Nintendo DS, 2K Sports promises that Prizefighter features a "documentary-style narrative never before seen in a video game" as you build your career in the game.
Development of Don King Presents: Prizefighter is being handled by Venom Games; the company's previous work includes the Rocky Legends game and the porting of Prey to Xbox 360.
"The combination of real-life fight scenarios, story-driven gameplay and photo-realistic graphics will set this title apart from the competition," said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. "Our goal has always been to deliver the most engaging and realistic titles, and Don King Presents: Prizefighter will exceed these expectations. Based on the game's innovative features and high-profile fighters, this title will be a 'must have' for any sports gamer."
