In a boxing ring-held press event earlier this month (no really, it was in a boxing ring), 2K revealed the unique features ofÃ‚Â on Wii, which will make use of the Wii Fit Balance Board.
The Venom Games-developed fighter (they’re the blokes who did the excellent Rocky games) will make use of the Balance Board for Wii Fit-style training modes, devised by “top boxing trainers”.
“Stuff like the jump rope game we have, you can be on the Balance Board and have the Wii Remote in your back pocket,” exec producer Matthew Seymour told CVG. “We have top boxing trainers putting together a workout routine, and using the BMI indicators that Nintendo put out you can actually get a boxing workout using Wii Prizefighter.
Will you actually get as fit as Tyson, though? “You’ll get pretty damn fit, yeah,” says Seymour. “It’s a workout – even the silly Wii Sports one is a workout. We intend to give you a real one with the Balance Board.”
Prizefighter on Wii is out later this year.
