Fight Night for the Wii
Although no official announcement has been forthcoming from Electronic Arts, the producer of the Fight Night series has confirmed that an iteration of the game is being planned for the Wii.
In a recent interview with a boxing website Doghouseboxing.com series producer Michael Blank was asked whether Electronic Arts was planning a version of the franchise for the Wii. Here’s part of the interview with Michael Blank.:
â€œWhen you play Wii Boxing it is a very simple experience and I think that is what they designed it to be just to let you know that you can throw punchesâ€, he added. â€œWith Fight Night we have an amazing simulation of boxing and so we need to take those Wii controls and tailor it to what the Fight Night consumer might want to experience. We are looking at it right now and I am sure you will [see] something some time in the future on the Wii.â€
I love Fight Night, especially the Get in the Ring mode in the PS3 version of Fight Night Round 3. Wii boxing wasn’t one of my favorite Wii sports game but like Michael Blank said in the interview they have an amazing simulation of boxing so a Wii version could be promising or a complete disaster.
