Don King Boxing Is Now Available for Wii and Nintendo DS
2K Sports today announced that Don King Boxing is now available in retail stores throughout North America for the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo and Nintendo DS™.
“Don King Boxing is a game that was tailor-made for the Wii and we’re very excited for it to be in gamers’ hands,” said Christoph Hartmann, 2K president. “The use of the Wii Balance Board™ is really intuitive, as you’re dodging punches in a fight or jumping rope in the Fitness section. You’ll certainly make full use of everything Wii has to offer with this game.”
Don King Boxing has already received a review score of 85% from UK’s Official Nintendo Magazine calling it “One of the most satisfying gaming experiences we’ve had for a long time.”
The game provides a revolutionary boxing experience for Wii via accurate controls, a unique story mode, an exhilarating multiplayer system, and implementation of the Wii Balance Board*. Developed by 2K China, Don King Boxing allows players to fight with or against over 20 licensed boxers in real venues, like Madison Square Garden, Boardwalk Hall, and Trump Taj Mahal. Players will experience what it’s like to be a real boxer as they throw jabs, hooks, and uppercuts with both hands - all while ducking and dodging blows on the Wii Balance Board.
To help players get in shape, 2K Sports worked closely with Don King and his staff to design a training portion of the game that mimics the routines used by real boxers. The training program can include the Wii Balance Board, tracking players’ progress and activity levels over time.
Don King Boxing is rated T for Teen by the ESRB for both the Wii and DS, and available at suggested retail prices of $39.99 and $19.99, respectively. For more information about Don King Boxing, log onto http://www.2ksports.com/games/donkingboxing
