EA reintroduces the fun of pummeling
However, it is likely that there will be quite a few difference between the two games, and considering the way Peter Moore, now President of the EA SPORTS Label, speaks about it, it certainly sounds like it will be a lot of fun. “ We’re very excited to announce FaceBreaker , an all-new franchise from EA SPORTS that is fun, fresh and innovative. F aceBreaker reinvigorates one of the great genres in sports videogames. Arcade boxing takes me back to my roots in this industry, and this game signals our shift to adding more approachable fun to our product lineup. In no time at all, you’ll be picking up the controllers and knocking your opponent around the ring, smashing faces, and having a riot.”
FaceBreaker will be available for Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
