Fight Night: Champion Hits Backwards Compatibility Today

Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson has been the face of Xbox for a few years now, announcing updates, entertaining gamers with his podcast and announcing the latest games coming to Xbox’s Backwards Compatibility Programme.

Today the Major announced that the boxing powerhouse Fight Night: Champion will be joining the many backwards compatible games available on the Xbox One Today!

“Fight Night Champion is a boxing video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts. It is the fifth entry in the Fight Night series and was released on March 1, 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game takes a drastic turn from its predecessors, depicting a “grittier”, “darker” setting with animations and player damage that “truly conveys the brutality of the sport of boxing.”[citation needed] The violence and strong language in the game’s story mode earned it a Mature rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board, the first and so far the only EA Sports title to do so.

The game was officially revealed on 7 July 2010 at an EA Sports studio showcase.[1] The game is the first EA Sports game to feature a full Hollywood-inspired story mode, called Champion Mode. The story follows the career of Andre Bishop, a talented boxer, who is forced to overcome great setbacks including a prison sentence and a corrupt fight promoter. Champion Mode is intended to further convey the brutality and hardship of the sport of boxing.”
