Fight Night Champion Coming in 2011 for 360, PS3

EA Sports announced the next entry in its professional boxing Fight Night series will arrive in 2011. Currently in development at EA Canada, Fight Night Champion, aims to up the ante with improved visuals and a re-imagined single player campaign.


Player locomotion, stamina, and punching mechanics will all reportedly benefit from an improved physics-based animation system. A new control scheme called "Full Spectrum Punch Control" intends to deliver "the most realistic punching system ever seen in a simulation fighting game." Exact details on how this system will work have yet to be unveiled.

Fight Night Champion is slated for release in 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
