Bruce Lee fans can ‘Enter the Dragon’ once again, as EA has announced on the official game site for EA Sports UFC that the legendary martial arts master and iconic movie star will be added to what should be a robust roster of Octagon fighters. If they pre-order the game, they will indeed attain Lee out of the box.
MMA games are starting to rise and for the UFC franchise, the partnership with EA Sports looks to be a great step into the right direction. Coming off the news with the official PlayStation 4 and Xbox One boxart of the game, the announcement of including Lee into the UFC world seems almost unreal, but it certainly makes sense. According to EA Sports Creative Director Brian Hayes, the combination of professional MMA fighting and the man who pioneered the art of martial arts is a match made in a heaven.
“I can’t conceive of a universe where bringing these two things together doesn’t make sense. I know there are going to be countless fans that feel the exact same way and they will be eager play with such a legend in the UFC Octagon. I am one of them,” Hayes said.
EA Sports UFC is set to release sometime in this Spring on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. EA has also released a hype-pumping trailer for the game, including a short shot of in-game Bruce Lee. Check out the video below.
