Electronic Arts reveals a June 30 ship date for EA Canada's Fight Night Round 4 (PS3, X360) in this new trailer, which hypes the sequel by punching Round 3 right in the face. Several new screenshots were also released, detailing more of the game's roster.

"[In Fight Night Round 3], you often found that the gameplay degraded into two guys standing in front of each other and trading blows," says producer Brian Hayes. "You saw a very scripted, very repetitive experience where people stood in front of each other."

But the physics of Round 4 alleviate that issue, he explains in the video below. "What we're really trying to deliver is the most realistic simulation of the sport of boxing ever in a video game....Fight Night Round 4, you see a much more fluid, natural game."

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.
