Supremacy MMA to feature first female fighters in an MMA game
Those who like to see women duke it out in the ring, but in a non-mud wrestling way, will be pleased to know that Supremacy MMA has you covered.
505 Games and developer Kung Fu Factory have announced that female fighters Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig and Michele “Diablita” Gutierrez will appear in the game as the first playable femme-fighters in the history of MMA games.
“Female fighters are not represented in MMA games and face a giant glass ceiling in the fighting world,” said Ricci Rukavina, CEO and creative director, Kung Fu Factory. “We’re proud to be a part of raising their profile and giving these tough-as-nails fighters their due in the virtual cage.”
Herrig, an XFO, UEC and Bellator vet, and Gutierrez, Wand Fight Team’s sole female brawler, will bring their likenesses and skill sets to the game’s combat system.
“Bringing playable female fighters to fans in Supremacy MMA represents the strong stance we’re taking in bringing a totally unique game to market,” said Peter Matiss, VP of marketing, 505 Games. “Michele and Felice fight with the same ferocity and heart as any other fighter, regardless of gender, and we are proud to represent these strong, determined women in our game.”
Supremacy MMA is slated for a June release on PS3 and Xbox 360.
