With the third iteration of the arcade style satirical boxing game Ready 2 Rumble 10Tacle Studios supplements its portfolio with yet another popular international brand, to be released for various videogame platforms. Japanese AKI Corporation, known for Def Jam and WWF Wrestlemania, has been entrusted with the first development.

10Tacle Studios' CEO Michele Pes explains: “With the release of “Ready 2 Rumble” 10Tacle Studios AG is focusing on one of the major game brands in the market. The family-friendly, humorous realisation of the boxing sport is unique and an ideal supplement to our product portfolio.”

“We are very pleased to have experienced development partners like AKI Corporation and the producing team of Stereo Mode on board for the realisation of this project. At the same time, this project underlines the strategic position of 10Tacle Studios Pte Ltd. in the Asian games market as a full-service provider for development, production, funding and distribution,” adds Aroon Tan, CEO of 10Tacle Studios Pte. Ltd.

For many years, Michael Buffer, the most famous boxing ring announcer in history, has opened the biggest international boxing events with the phrase “Let’s Get Ready to RumbleĀ®”. Moreover, “Ready 2 Rumble” stands now for one of the most popular brands in boxing games. In this game, caricatures of numerous celebrities take it to the ring, where they have to prove their fighting spirit in battles of epically hilarious proportions. Excellent animation, action-packed moves and ironic commentary have already made the predecessors top-sellers and provided enduring gaming fun.

10Tacle Studios AG anticipates a turnover through distribution of the game of more than 20 million US dollars by 2010.
