The first screen shot from EA Sports’ highly anticipated MMA video game has been released. The image is of Russian superstar Fedor Emelianenko submitting a fighter with his trademark armbar. MMA fans will get to play as Fedor, as well as a whole host of other fighters not found in the current UFC video game from THQ released earlier this year.
Fedor recently commented on what it meant to him to be featured in the EA Sports MMA video game. “I have fought all over the world and I am excited to be in EA SPORTS MMA because this game is going to show the global appeal of mixed martial arts,” said Emelianenko. “I know MMA fans have been wanting to play as me and pitting me against any opponent. Now they will have their opportunity.”
The game entitled EA Sports MMA (mixed martial arts) is scheduled to be released sometime in 2010 and will be available on the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 video game consoles. You can sign up to receive updates about the game on the official website at www.mma.easports.com.
