Fight Night Champion Will KO Xbox 360, PS3 Next Year

EA Sports is giving its boxing sim series Fight Night one more round in the ring, officially naming Fight Night Champion for release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011. What's new? "Full Spectrum Punch Control" for one.

That all-new control scheme for EA's fighter will, according to the publisher, "deliver the most realistic punching system ever seen in a simulation fighting game, while still delivering an accessible experience that will make Fight Night Champion the most user-friendly title in the franchise's history."

Fight Night Champion is in development at EA's Vancouver studio and will likely take advantage of the company's Online Pass program for its online play. Expect more details later today as EA unveils more of its upcoming line-up.
