To commemorate the titles 25th anniversary, MGM have recently re-released special editions of the Rocky collection on DVD and VHS Video.

Based on the critically acclaimed Rocky movie anthology, the game will feature all of the lead characters from the five Rocky films including Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago and Tommy Gunn.
