It wasn’t that long ago that we told you about Real Boxing getting a Vita release and now we know when.

Vivid Games told us today that the game will be released to the PS Store on August the 28th and that it will feature tournaments locally and online.

“In Real Boxing, players will journey from amateur to pro in a comprehensive boxing simulation. As shown in the first reveal of gameplay footage, the Unreal Engine 3-powered game provides a realistic experience in terms of both stunning graphics and accurate simulation gameplay. Boxers are designed from the laces up to look and move realistically with extensive motion capture of every punch, jab, and uppercut in high definition—and boxers can be upgraded and customized down to individual tattoos, hair, and clothing.

Intuitive controls fully utilize the Vita’s physical, analogue and touch capabilities to offer a highly customisable and natural fighting gameplay for matches in single, career, and training modes – with the handheld’s Near feature being used for all manner of goodies and surprises.

Real Boxing’s rich suite of features has been exclusively enhanced for PlayStation Vita. The game now includes new console-style multiplayer with tournaments based on leaderboard rankings and one-on-one battles with friends and random opponents. A new minigame lets players fight out of clinches using tilt controls. An improved combo system adds depth to the fighting mechanics.”

We have a few new screens for you to enjoy below. The game will cost €9.99/£7.99 when it launches and is certainly one we are looking forward to. Are you excited for it?
