This generation has not seen very many decent boxing games. Survios looks to fill the void with the just-announced Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions.
Announced during today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions is a brand-new entry in the Creed video game franchise. It is the second collaboration between Survios and MGM. The first was 2018’s Creed: Rise to Glory, which features characters from classic Rocky films and the recent Creed movies.
Big Rumble Boxing features a legendary roster of characters, such as titular lead Adonis Creed, Rocky Balboa, Ivan & Victor Drago, and Clubber Lang. Players square up against the best fighters in the world across a heart-pounding arcade mode, where they can experience unique stories and unlock rewards.
Players also go shoulder-to-shoulder against friends in local competitive multiplayer. You’ll also experience iconic Rocky training montages through a series of minigames and undergo a training mode designed to build up one’s legendary status.
Big Rumble Boxing has the potential to be this generation’s Ready 2 Rumble Boxing. The all-new arcade boxing game launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in spring 2021. With all of the focus in recent years on UFC video games, I’m looking forward to a boxing game!
