BandaiNamcois back with another anime/mangaadaptation to console, and once again the result is as authentic as can be!
Taking theKodanshaaward winning series "HajimeNoIppo" (lit. The First Step), this conversion of the famous underdog story makes a perfect translation for the PlayStation 3. With full voice acting, fullycolouredmangastylecutscenes, and gameplay which could be said to be the evolved form of the classicPunchout!!, for any fan (and there are many...) this game is a total T.K.O.!
Inhonourof the25thanniversary ofHajimeNoIppo, the game will follow the story up to the introduction ofSawamuraRyuuhei. While fans will know that this is up to Volume 55 of themanga, there are also non-canonical matches that enables alternate timelines; known as "Best Match Mode," for example, ifIppocan defeat DateEiji, he is able to become champion a lot sooner which opens up other opponents which may not have happened in themanga.
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 perfectJofle'sUpper which will floor challengers straight to the mat? Each boxer will have their signaturemovesetand more! As well, before release, there is already a patch for this title which will improve loading times and smoothen out gameplay.
UPDATE! Secret 2Player VS Mode Code!

Bandai Namco’s Hajime no Ippo game certainly captures the spirit of the boxing game series. In between bouts with Takeshi Sendo from the Naniwa Gym and Alexander Volg Zangief, the PlayStation 3 game has stylish manga style cutscenes. Compared to the Punch-Out!!! games, Hajime no Ippo: The Fightinglooks like it’s faster and you can customize your fighter with different skills like using an uppercut. 8.7 out of 100
