At a glance, you would be entitled to think that Supremacy MMA’s main “attraction” is its grimy underground environments, ugly menacing fighters and bone-crunching violence; it is a hardcore game for those who think EA’s MMA and UFC Undisputed are too soft. However, once you strip away all of the gruesomeness and awful metal music, you find something deeper and even quite thoughtful underneath.
You may not be familiar with any of the fighters in Supremacy MMA. It certainly has fewer stars than UFC Undisputed, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about these guys.
Supremacy MMA’s tagline reads “every fighter has a story”. The developer Kung Fu Factory shows this by having a story mode that actually explores the histories and personalities of the fighters, and looks to find out why they fight. Respect is also shown to their fighting styles.
No two fighters fight the same way, and every fighter has their own reasons for fighting. These are the stars of Supremacy MMA…
We chat to Ricci Rukavina, founder and CEO of Kung Fu Factory, to find out why Supremacy MMA is being designed the way it is and why its arcade/sim crossover could be a contender. In the interview Ricci reveals the extensive fighting game experience the team has, why Kung Fu Factory is shunning simulation and why not being beholden to a license is actually a very good thing.
Last week we announced Supremacy MMA’s exclusive pre-order bonuses alongside hot off the press trailers for two of the exclusive fighters: Shane Del Rosario and Bao Quach. We now have trailers for the two exclusive venues: the seedy Glass Slipper strip club (where “gentlemen are not allowed”) and a grimy slaughterhouse.
505 Games has announced its pre-order bonuses for Supremacy MMA. The deals offer an extra venue for those who pre-order from HMV and Play.com and an extra fighter for those who pre-order from Amazon and GAME.
When 505 Games announced Supremacy MMA last year, our first thoughts were not positive. We won’t lie; we didn’t think we needed another MMA game. THQ has that genre sewn-up with their UFC games, and EA Sports’ MMA is a very good alternative. We could not see what Kung Fu Factory could do to supplant them.
So what gives them an edge? “We’re not beholden to any sort of brand or organisation, we’re here to make all of our decisions and at the top of the list is great gameplay”, explains Ricci Rukavina, founder, CEO and creative director at Kung Fu Factory. In front of us is the game and Ricci is showing us its ins and outs. It is not what we expected.
When Kung Fu Factory’s brutally violent Supremacy MMA drops on to the PlayStation 3 in June, female MMA fighters will, for the first time ever, be represented in a videogame.
We caught up with two of its leading female stars, Michele “Diablita” Gutierrez and Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig and discussed the current perception of female fighters, their future aspirations, vanity and what it’s like to see your leg being snapped in half. Ouch.
Be warmed, we’ve been told that if we don’t publish nice things, Felice and Michele will punch us ten times. We’ve seen videos of these girls in action – so we won’t argue!
