When a sequel to the mobile game “Real Boxing” was announced, many assumed it would just be a standard sequel. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as the game has now been rechristened as “Real Boxing 2: Creed” and is an official tie-in game to the upcoming “Creed” film.
To those unaware, “Creed” is a spinoff from the “Rocky” films and stars Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa and Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson, the son of Apollo Creed. Adonis is hoping to live up to his father’s legacy as a boxer and he might just do so with Rocky training him.
“Real Boxing 2” will have players in the shoes of Adonis for its single-player mode, with a virtual version of Stallone training him, as reported by Pocket Gamer. The game itself looks like a mix of training with Rocky and actual boxing, if the trailer below is any indication.
Interestingly enough, there will also be a multiplayer mode in the game. While that’s expected in most boxing games, it is somewhat odd seeing one based on a movie title that only focuses on a few characters. While the “Rocky” films have had their fair share of memorable characters, “Creed” seems more like a personal story and it will be interesting to see if any memorable names get put in the game.
Both the single-player mode and the multiplayer will supposedly blend together, which is intriguing to say the least. The game will be coming out later this month, so any questions asked about how they blend together should be answered soon.
Fans interested in the mobile title can sign up for the game’s VIP Club in the official “Real Boxing 2” website. Those that sign up for the VIP Club can get exclusive gear and a chance to try the game out in a beta test. VIP members will also get an exclusive in-game starter bonus.
"Real Boxing 2: Creed” will be available on Nov. 19 for iOS and Android. The game will be free-to-play and will presumably support in-app purchases for those that don’t want to grind for rewards.
