EA Sports' Fight Night Champion is a boxing game that has already been rated 'M' for Mature, and that's largely because of the story in its Champions Mode. This is the first-ever M-rated EA Sports game, and from the looks of the five vignettes presented above -- the "Andre Bishop Monologues" -- the story of Andre Bishop is going to address the seedy underbelly of boxing: self-serving promoters, trash talking, fixed fights, and more.
It's the kind of stuff that has helped make boxing films some of Hollywood's most dramatic and successful projects, and now, you're going to get the chance to play through it. Fight Night Champion will be out on March 1st for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3; EA will release a demo next Tuesday, February 1st.
