Meet EA Sports UFC’s mystery fighter: Bruce Lee!

April 8th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Martial arts legend and action film star Bruce Lee will appear in mixed martial arts title EA Sports UFC, EA Sports announced today!

The character is the product of a partnership between EA Sports and Bruce Lee Enterprises, who agreed to support Lee’s inclusion with plenty of background material which, according to EA Sports, allowed them to create a highly authentic digital representation of the martial arts legend.

Here’s what art director Ian Lloyd had to say:

“This does not just look like Bruce Lee. It is Bruce Lee. The way he carries himself, his fighting stance, his rippling physique, devastating speed, signature strikes and accompanying yells, whoops and shrieks. We have summoned this pinnacle of human strength, speed and spirit into our world and it has truly been an honor and a career highlight for us to do so.”

EA Sports UFC is the first release under EA’s new licensing agreement created to reboot the company’s MMA series.

Bruce Lee can be unlocked in the flyweight, bantam weight, featherweight and lightweight divisions by finishing the game’s career mode on pro difficulty or higher. Day one access is available by pre-ordering the game from select retailers. You can see Bruce Lee in action in the gameplay trailer below.

Look for him when EA Sports UFC lands on Xbox One and PS4 on June 17th.
