Get out the gloves and jump in the ring as Rocky Balboa and go head-to-head against Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago, and Tommy Gunn! Train with Mickey and company to pound your way from the streets of Philadelphia to become the Heavyweight Champion of the world! Rocky delivers big time punch combos and flurries with thunderous power and heart-stopping speed. This time when the bell rings, it’s for real!

Rocky makes his way onto next-generation consoles for the first time. Published by Ubi Soft Entertainment and developed by Rage Software, Rocky is the ultimate boxing game for both Rocky fanatics and boxing gamers alike. Rocky allows players to fight through several modes of play, including Movie Mode, Exhibition and Knockout Tournament in this fun pick-up-and-play boxing game. The Movie Mode places gamers directly into the Rocky movies, allowing players to control the people's champion in the award-winning, Rocky I through Rocky V movies. Players will fight three minor characters from each movie, leading up to the main event against the boss boxer from each movie -- Apollo Creed for Rocky I and Rocky II, Clubber Lang for Rocky III, Ivan Drago for Rocky IV, and Tommy Gunn for Rocky V. Each of the boxers will simulate the strengths and weaknesses from the characters in the movies. Players will be able to train Rocky prior to each fight in training sequences. Additionally, pre-rendered cut scenes that mirror actual scenes from the movies will play prior to the final bout against the boss boxer. Rocky character voices and music were licensed from the movies to create the ultimate Rocky boxing experience. Rocky is targeted for Fall release.
