EA quiet on Fight Night Wii

But producer spills some beans.

Gracefully dodging our probing jabs this morning was EA, which remained covered-up over speculation that Fight Night will be appearing on Wii.

Rumours started to fly after game producer Michael Blank had hinted at the possibility in a recent interview, remaining confident that we would see something on the console in the future.

"We're contemplating and we definitely feel there are some exciting things we can do with the Fight Night franchise and the Wii," he told Doghouseboxing.com. "We are looking at it right now and I am sure you will see something some time in the future on the Wii."

The game itself could take face-punching to a higher level of interactivity, much like Wii Sports boxing, which simulates your punches when you have the remote in one hand and nunchuck in the other. Something of a work out, Blank predicts.

"We want people to get a bit of workout," he added. "If you like playing sports games and are excited by sports it is a good way to give you the best of both worlds."

He also hinted at the next Fight Night experience we could expect on Xbox 360 and PS3, estimating we would see a game as revolutionary as FNR3 was in around a year from now.

"Just like the Xbox 360 and PS3 with the punch and amazing visuals, we want to take the next leap for the next Fight Night," he said. "It will be within a year from now is my current estimate."

Fight Night Round 3 on PlayStation 3 will feature enhanced graphics and performance, as well as a new "Get in The Ring" mode, which puts you in first person perspective to really feel and experience the punches. It will be available at the console's launch on 23rd March.

The Xbox 360 version is already available, and you can find our review of the game elsewhere on the site.
