American reality TV "star" Kim Kardashian will be included in EA Sports' boxing game FaceBreaker as a playable character.
Boxing for the Wii family.
Electronic Arts has confirmed to Eurogamer that new boxing title Facebreaker will be out this autumn.
Facebreaker is in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. As Johnny reported in his preview last month, it's an arcade fighter with cartoony visuals and a sense of humour. See for yourself by checking out the videos on the gamepage.
News emerged this morning that Facebreaker has been given a September 5th release date in the US. An EA spokesperson has since confirmed to Eurogamer, "It will be the same in Europe."
The world of sport is full of well-known faces that have, over the course of a reckless career, been battered, bent, chipped, chinned, mashed and mangled well beyond Mother Nature's original design. Footy defenders, rugger buggers and, of course, boxers all proudly wear their disfigurements as if they'd wandered into a plastic surgeon's office clutching a photo of Sloth out of The Goonies.
EA Sports' global marketing boss Todd Sitrin has said that the division is currently working on two new, unannounced intellectual properties, GamesIndustry.biz reports.
