EA has announced both the release date for EA Sports UFC and the fact that Bruce Lee will appear as a playable character.
That date is June 20th, two and a half months from now.
And as for Bruce, the simplest way to get hold of him is as a pre-order bonus. If you're not inclined to pre-order the game, you can also get access to him by completing the game on pro difficulty.
“I am so excited about this opportunity to bring my father back to videogames!” said Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, CEO of Bruce Lee, LLC. “I’m thrilled that fans can now interact with him in a new way. The EA Sports UFC development team has been incredible to work with, and they've done a great job capturing the look and feel of my father. I think people will love getting a chance to fulfill a fight fantasy by playing Bruce Lee in the new UFC game.”
Aaaaand... “There’s no debate, Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts,” said Dana White, UFC President. “He believed not one style of fighting was the best and that you had to have a little piece of everything to be a complete fighter. He was proven right when the first UFC event took place in 1993.”
So that's all that. Here's a new trailer:
