I gotta say, if it wasn’t for this Bruce Lee, I wouldn’t be giving EA Sports UFC a second glance. My interest in mixed martial arts is minimal, but as a fan of history, film history, and East Asian history, Bruce Lee was one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
EA Sports seems to recognize that a lot of people are probably in the same boat, because they are putting him all over the marketing of the game as well. Bruce Lee this. Bruce Lee that.
In extensive interviews with modern day MMA fighters for this latest trailer for EA Sports UFC, the stars of today, EA Sports developers, and even the UFC President can’t seem to lay the praise on thick enough.
Not bad for a secret character who wasn’t even known to be in the game until a month ago. “When you are controlling Bruce lee inside the Octagon, you do feel like the Dragon,” the developers say.
I might just have to pick up EA Sports UFC somewhere down the road. I don’t own an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 yet, so we aren’t calling it a high priority. Just a chance to see Bruce Lee in a video game.
EA Sports UFC will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 17. “Be water my friend.”
