The next update to “EA Sports UFC Mobile” will be adding martial arts legend Bruce Lee to the game’s roster. The mixed martial arts simulator recently added “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey and the female division in the game, so it seems like the app will continue to get updated with new fighters in the future.
While the addition of Bruce Lee might be considered an odd decision, the Hollywood legend has actually appeared in the console version of the game, prior to his mobile appearance. According to Touch Arcade, Lee will be available in the flyweight division and the lightweight division, so the legend can compete for multiple championships. Lee also comes with attire that is partially based on his famous yellow suit.
Interestingly enough, this is not Lee’s first appearance in a mobile game as the martial artist was also available in “Temple Run 2” for a limited time. The late actor also has his own mobile game called “Bruce Lee: Enter the Game,” where he beats up tons of thugs and fans can unlock various outfits for him to wear in the title.
According to App Trigger, fans will be able to use Bruce Lee in “UFC Mobile” for free, from Aug. 25 to Sept. 3. Most of the big name fighters are difficult to unlock, requiring a lot of in-game cash or real money to unlock them. This can be seen as a nice gesture from EA, as most people would want to use Lee in the game right away.
Lee is not the only odd celebrity to make his way into a video game. 2K Games announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be available in “WWE 2K16” as the T-800 from the “Terminator” movies. Like Lee before him, the former California governor has never wrestled before, though he has appeared in an episode of Smackdown in the 90’s and even made a cameo during Triple H’s entrance in “Wrestlemania 31.”
Fans interested in playing as Bruce Lee or UFC in general can purchase “EA Sports UFC Mobile” on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The game is a free download, so anyone can try it out.
