Agoura Hills, CA – May 20, 2011—Global videogame publisher 505 Games and developer Kung Fu Factory announced today that Supremacy MMA™ will bully its way onto store shelves everywhere on September 20, 2011 for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Supremacy MMA’s one-of-kind blend of arcade gameplay and MMA fighting styles is currently scheduled to be the only new fighting game shipping this holiday season.
“Supremacy MMA is an extremely important new IP for 505 Games and represents another level of depth to our growing roster of games,” said Ian Howe, President, 505 Games North America. “With that in mind, we believe the tremendous value of the title combined with the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had from consumers and writers during early gameplay sneak peeks, tells us this title deserves to launch in the thick of the fall buying season.”
“There’s a huge opening in the market with no retail fighting games, and specifically no MMA games, hitting this fall so we’re ready to deliver a title that exceeds the expectations of MMA and arcade fighter fans alike,”said Ricci Rukavina, creative director, Kung Fu Factory.

505 Games is jumping into the cage this fall with the only MMA fighting game coming out in 2011, Supremacy MMA. Armed with arcade-like speed and real in-game fighters—including former UFC champ Jens Pulver and K1 kickboxing legend Jerome Le Banner, and the first real female fighters in an MMA game, Felice Herrig and Michele Gutierrez—Supremacy MMA favors fast-and-furious gameplay and underground aesthetics over slower simulation-style presentation. Published by 505 Games and developed by Kung Fu Factory, Supremacy MMA raises the bar in the MMA space by bringing an unprecedented level of fast, fluid combat, intuitive controls and true-to-the-sport brutality.
Supremacy MMA is slated for release September 23, 2011, on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
