Rage is pleased to announce its line-up of titles to be shown on the Xbox video game system from Microsoft at the X02 event taking place in Seville, Spain on 24-25 September 2002.

Featuring 30 individual fighters plus special hidden characters including Rocky’s trainer ‘Mickey’ and over 250 fight moves ranging from attacking hooks, jabs and uppercuts through to defensive blocks, ducks and weaves specially motion captured by current WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Johnny Nelson, Rocky faithfully recreates the feel-good-factor of the Academy Award® winning movies and is the most exciting and explosively charged boxing game around on any console.

Rocky also features realistic damage including bruises, facial swellings, blood, sweat and tears as the action heats up, plus there is a dedicated training mode designed to enhance your boxer’s skill and stamina.

Rocky is scheduled for release on Xbox in October 2002.
