Ready 2 Rumble To Return For Third Round

March 2, 2007

Officials from German developer 10tacle Studios have announced plans for the third title in the Ready 2 Rumble arcade style satirical boxing series. Through the company’s Singapore subsidiary, along with licensor The Buffer Partnership and executive producer Stereo Mode, the game will be developed for unspecified video game platforms by AKI Corporation (Def Jam, WWF Wrestlemania series).

Though little is known about the sequel currently, early information seems to indicate that the earlier games’ cast of original fighters may be replaced by “caricatures of numerous celebrities” who take it to the ring.

10tacle adds that the company expects turnover through distribution of the game to exceed $20 million by 2010, suggesting that the game may still be quite a ways from seeing the light of retail.
