Chicago, IL—Global videogame publisher 505 Games announced today its partnership with Victory Records- the Chicago-based music label known for its roster of hardcore punk and metal bands- and has revealed that five of Victory’s artists will be featured on the soundtrack for 505 Games’ upcoming no-holds barred fighting game, Supremacy MMA™.
Victory Records acts and songs set to appear in Supremacy MMA are:
· Destrophy - “Reconnect” (See a live performance here)
· Taproot - “Stolage”
· Bury Your Dead - “Broken Body”
· Emmure - “10 Signs You Should Leave”
· Within the Ruins - “Invade”, “Versus”, “The Carouser”, “Ataxia”, “Roads”
“We’re all huge gamers and serious MMA fans, so having our music on the Supremacy MMA soundtrack is f*cking awesome,” said Emmure lead singer Frankie Palmeri, whose latest album, Speaker of the Dead, is available in stores now (check out the brand new video for “Solar Flare Homicide” here). “I can’t wait to get my hands on the game myself.”
“Working with Victory Records to bring such talented and current bands to Supremacy MMA is an awesome opportunity,” said Ricci Rukavina, Creative Director of Kung Fu Factory. “We love the label, and their music brings a new level of intensity to the game’s atmosphere and visceral combat.”
Headed to Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Supremacy MMA raises the bar in the MMA space by bringing an unprecedented level of fluid combat, intuitive controls and true-to-the-sport brutality under the guidance of the talent behind titles like the original UFC (Dreamcast), The Warriors, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Scarface and most recently UFC Undisputed 2009.
Published by 505 Games, a global game publisher, and in development at Kung Fu Factory, Supremacy MMA is slated for release June, 2011 on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
