'Fighters Uncaged' (X360) Publisher Sued By UFC For Patent Infringement

Fighters Uncaged delivers the excitement of real fighting competitions in addition to teaching players mixed martial arts techniques, delivering players an immersive total-body combat experience with the Kinect technology.

Ultimate Fighting Championship parent company Zuffa LLC filed a lawsuit last week with the US District Court of Nevada against Ubisoft regarding the usage of the "Ultimate fighting" term being used on the Fighters Uncaged back cover, a term which Zuffa has patented. Zuffa is seeking all profits Ubisoft may have made from the game, attorney's fees, exemplary damages, compensatory damages, and triple the normal damages for trademark violation, as well as all packaging that uses the term to be destroyed.

Leveraging the Kinect technology, Fighters Uncaged delivers players an immersive total-body combat experience. Players will be able to create 70 different strikes inspired by martial arts and compete in 21 different fighting environments such as rooftops, dark alleys, gritty city docks and abandoned church. Included are diverse opponents with unique fighting styles, devastating combos with voice-activated super strikes, opportunities to upgrade your character by unlocking new skills and a jump-in multiplayer feature to take your enemies down with your friends.

Charge head first into the vicious world of illegal free fighting tournaments, where you will use every muscle in your body to beat down all who challenge you. Forced into a secret tournament, Simon must use what he learned from his father, an ex-boxing champ, as he faces off against violent combatants who will brutally unleash a range of mixed martial arts attacks to take him down.
