The comedic boxing franchise Ready 2 Rumble is returning to the ring next spring, as Atari today unveiled Ready 2 Rumble Revolution, a Wii-exclusive game that’s being tailored to take advantage of the motion-control capabilities of the Nintendo Wii.
Ready 2 Rumble Revolution will include a roster of 18 cartoony boxers based on celebrities from the worlds of sports, music and movies, with the celebrities entering the ring as caricatures of themselves.
Although it’s a Wii game, Ready to Rumble Revolution will include damage textures, so as players unleash special moves, combos, extreme knockdowns and special “Rumble” combos, the opponent will definitely show damage.
In terms of gameplay, a new Championship Mode will let gamers create their own boxer and nurture his skills through mini-games RPG-style. Using the Nunchuk as one glove and the Wii Remote as the other, players will dodge, weave and throw the big punches to KO their opponents.
Ready to Rumble Revolution will be hosted by Michael Buffer, who’s famous for his “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!” line.
