Experience the destructive power of 001 cm - Hajime No Ippo: The Fighting!
Have you ever wondered how it feels to be strong?
Makunouchi Ippo is still searching for the answer, one dynamite punch at a time...
PlayStation®3 [Fighting] Release: December 11th
Bandai Namco is back with another anime/manga adaptation to console, and once again the result is as authentic as can be!
Taking the Kodansha award winning series "Hajime No Ippo" (lit. The First Step), this conversion of the famous underdog story makes a perfect translation for the PlayStation 3. With full voice acting, fully coloured manga style cutscenes, and gameplay which could be said to be the evolved form of the classic Punchout!!, for any fan (and there are many...) this game is a total T.K.O.!
In honour of the 25th anniversary of Hajime No Ippo, the game will follow the story up to the introduction of Sawamura Ryuuhei. While fans will know that this is up to Volume 55 of the manga, there are also non-canonical matches that enables alternate timelines; known as "Best Match Mode," for example, if Ippo can defeat Date Eiji, he is able to become champion a lot sooner which opens up other opponents which may not have happened in the manga.
In terms of gameplay, focus is spent on customizing boxers with selectable skills; players will have to discover what works best of them in the ring. Will they be going all technical with a counter? Or will it be the perfect Jofle's Upper which will floor challengers straight to the mat? Each boxer will have their signature moveset and more! As well, before release, there is already a patch for this title which will improve loading times and smoothen out gameplay. Sunday Punch!
UPDATE! Secret 2 Player VS Mode Code!
Using the 2nd controller, press L1, R1, D-pad Left, D-pad Right, square, then circle!
