Today is a big day for fighting games. With the trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hitting the net and a new video being released for UFC Undisputed 2010’s Career mode, could this mean that genre that once defined the 90s could be making a move to overtake shooters as the most popular? While that statement might be taking things a little too far, it is true that fighting games have been on an upswing. With the success of last year’s UFC Undisputed and Street Fighter 4, things are definitely looking up.
In the trailer below, a first look is given at the drastic changes to the career mode of UFC Undisputed 2010. Trying to add more of a story element to the game, players will be given interactive weigh-ins and interviews where they can decide their fighters responses to create rivalries in addition to their basic training regime.
Game Tracking will allow the computer to learn your style, encouraging creativity in how someone fights. A player cannot hope to win every fight with the same maneuver. Opponents will learn and come up with strategies to counter you much like real fighters do by watching tapes before upcoming matches.
For added customizability, players don’t just customize the look of their fighter. They will be able to pick and choose the training camps available to their fighter. Different camps allow for different specialized training while working alongside experts in each discipline. Players will also take a path similar to real UFC fighters. Instead of just jumping into the UFC with full sponsorship and training, they will have to work their way from the ground up fighting in the WFA before being accepted into higher quality training camps.
Take a peek at the video after the jump and as always, stick to the Flickcast for more information on UFC Undisputed 2010 as it becomes available.
