Good news for the Wii peeps looking for more mature type titles.


THQ exec: "UFC Undisputed" videogame heading to the Nintento Wii platform

07/30/09

THQ and the UFC's popular videogame franchise "UFC Undisputed," which debuted earlier this year with a 2009 installment, will soon head to the Nintendo Wii platform.

The game, currently available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, will be available for the Wii and its handheld consoles, THQ CEO Brian Farrell announced during a recent company call.

The Wii version of "UFC Undisputed" could be available as early as next year.

"UFC Undisputed," which has topped two million copies sold since its release this spring, is the most realistic MMA videogame ever developed. With more than 80 fighters and dozens of UFC broadcasters, trainers and other personalities, the game has proven a major (and much-needed) hit for the once-struggling THQ.

The UFC and THQ signed a multi-year deal to produce the game, and new and updated editions of the title will be released each year.

The game, though, will soon get competition from sports-videogame giant, EA Sports. As MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) reported on Wednesday, famed heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko will headline its "EA Sports MMA" franchise. Other non-UFC fighters such as Renato "Babalu' Sobral, Gegard Mousasi, Jay Hieron and Frank Shamrock are also expected to be featured in the rival title.
