Video Games Destined To Be a Knockout

Showtime Networks Inc. tapped Destination Software Inc. to create video games based on its Showtime Championship Boxing series. The games will be released in late fall on both the Nintendo DS and Wii platforms.  Both games will feature 14 boxers fighting it out in four different fight locations—Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. Boxers can block, dodge, punch, and throw combos in three different modes. The Title Belt fight mode will take the player through multiple rounds and opponents in a quest to become champion of the world. Players can also take advantage of wireless capabilities when fighting head-to-head with a friend.
