We all know that Xbox has been starved of boxing games over the past decade (although we're keeping a close eye on eSports Boxing Club), but we're finally getting one on September 3 in the form of Big Rumble Boxing.
The video above gives us a look at gameplay, and to us it seems fairly reminiscent of the classic late 90s and early 2000s series, Ready 2 Rumble, which focused on colourful, over-the-top presentation and an arcade style of boxing.
Big Rumble Boxing will allow you to "step into the ring and show off your boxing skills in a knockout arcade experience", featuring 20 iconic characters from the Creed and Rocky universe, each with "legendary tales" you can play through.
The game is available to pre-order now on the Microsoft Store, and here's a bit more about what to expect:
- Big Rumble Boxing (Microsoft Store) - £33.49 / $39.99
Are you ready to become a boxing champion? Step into the ring and show off your boxing skills in a knockout arcade experience. Fight as 20 iconic characters from the Creed and Rocky universe. Take on world-class opponents across a variety of thrilling locations, or challenge your friends and family in intense, head-to-head matches.
