Along With EA’s MMA, THQ’s UFC games are getting another competitor in the shape of 505 Game’s Supremacy MMA. The game is developed by Kung Fu Factory, a team encompassing people involved in such games as Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Warriors, the well regarded Dreamcast UFC title and even UFC Undisputed 2009. So there’s plenty of fighting game experience there to hopefully conjure up something special.

According to the press release, Supremacy MMA is coming to the 360 and PS3 and is set to raise the bar for MMA games – offering fluid, brutal combat, intuitive controls and a true to life experience.

Creative director Ricci Rukavina had this to say: “Kung Fu Factory’s vision is to make an MMA game that is as authentic and realistic as possible that will introduce an entirely new type of experience to gamers. The team has an enormous amount of passion for the genre and has been relentlessly researching every aspect of the sport to deliver an MMA game unlike any other. When gamers play Supremacy MMA, we think it will absolutely knock them out.

Executive Producer Daryl Pitts also sounds excited: “Years of honing our proprietary animation tools and technology have put us in a unique position to create a groundbreaking MMA game, Our vision is to adapt real-life martial arts strategies into fun and intuitive game mechanics. We want players to easily be able to enjoy the deep level of satisfaction that comes from mastering MMA techniques.

Finally, Adam Kline president of the US side of 505 Games has a lot of positive things to say about Kung Fu Factory: “The team at Kung Fu Factory have proven over the years that they are the only studio in America with the expertise to bring a fighting game of this calibre to life
