"We focused on making the official Black & Bruised website look and feel like the game in order to introduce the game's 19 not-so-typical boxers and unique game play features," said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. "We're offering a free demo for registering because its combination of Boxer' s Life mode, strategic power-ups and combos make this much more than just a boxing game - and we want consumers to experience that first hand."

Boxer's Life is one of the more unique elements of Black & Bruised. Players are introduced to the 19 colorful characters through a series of seven in-game movies that reveal each fighter's storyline and set-up the strategic constraints for the following match. incorporates this unique mode by featuring the first Boxer's Life movie for select characters, with additional movies added regularly. Players can also access the latest game and contest news, screen shots, movies, boxer profiles and game play tips.

Cel-shaded graphics and off-the-wall special effects create an experience similar to a fast-paced cartoon episode. Detailed facial animations convey a boxer's mood and reactions, while real-time damage indicates injuries over the course of a fight.

Developed by Digital Fiction for the PlayStation2 and GameCube, Black & Bruised will ship to stores in February 2003. Additional information on Majesco's entire line-up of exciting products can be found on the Majesco website
