FIGHT NIGHT: WILL WE EVER SEE A NEW FIGHT NIGHT?
It has been just under 9 years since the last entry in the Fight Night series was released. New discussions and chatter on Social Media suggest there is current development in motion on the heavy hitting Boxing Game. Fight Night: Champion, released in March 2011, was the last title to be released from EA Sports. It featured Legacy Mode, allowing you to create your alter ego and work your way up the ranks to become the ultimate champion. But with so much happening in the world of Boxing, is now the perfect time for another round?
A recent tweet from none other than the Undisputed Heavy Weight Champion Lennox Lewis, has caused another stir in the Gaming world as the prospect of another Fight Night title is now becoming expected.
Boxing has had a large presence since the Fight Night Champion was released, especially in the previous 5 years with the rise of the Heavyweight division with fighters such as; Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte. other divisions feature new superstars such as; Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Billy Joe Saunders. Recent upsets, Super fights and Comeback stories have helped raise the presence of Boxing. This makes it the perfect time to unleash another Fight Night to the world.
The Old VS The New…
The Fight Night franchise has always been a great game for mixing legendary fighters with current champions. The fans are begging to line up super fights such as Anthony Joshua vs Mike Tyson to settle debates. Using similar features to EA Sports UFC 3 and FIFA 20, would allow users to conduct press conferences, aiming to get under the skin of their opponents before a single jab had been thrown. Imagine, the fast talking, free flowing speeches from Muhammad Ali against Tyson Fury’s antics at the Pre-Fight Press Conference.
The Rise of Women’s Boxing
With the rise of female representation in Boxing, the new title would be the first Fight Night to feature Women’s Boxing. The likes of Katie Taylor, Lucia Rijker and Laila Ali would open up a whole new section to the Game and like EA Sports UFC 3 and FIFA 19 would help promote the gender equality in the Sport.
The Undisputed King of Boxing Games?
The theme of Boxing over recent years has been all about becoming undisputed champion. The perfect platform for a new Fight Night feature, creating your alter ego and working your way through the ranks to become the Undisputed Champion of the World. External challenges such as Advertising contracts sent to distract you from the ultimate goal of becoming undisputed in your weight class. Whilst we are at this, bring back the option to create your own ring walk with pyrotechnics and lasers like the good old days of Fight Night Round 3!
With array of features available in the current line up of EA Sports titles, if a new Fight Night was to release, it would surely be the best one yet and if Lennox Lewis Tweet is anything to go by, enhanced graphics on the Next Gen consoles would bring the legends of the sport to life.
