If there’s anything our conversations with Bit Fry CEO Ben Friedlin have taught us, its that he’s not out to make just another arcade sports game. Ben and his studio are on a crusade to change the sports gaming genre as we know it, and today’s announcement only serves as another Infinity Stone in the gauntlet of arcade sports supremacy.
In an announcement via FOX Sports, Bit Fry Games has officially inked a partnership with the WWE to bring Superstars Roman Reigns and Sasha Banks to Ultimate Rivals: The Court – with six additional Superstars in the works for future announcements.
With WWE joining the Ultimate Rivals franchise, we can now really say that Bit Fry’s re-envisioning of arcade-action sports video-games has truly become ultimate,” remarked Ben Freidlin, CEO and founder of Bit Fry Game Studios, Inc. “Our promise to gamers has always been that they can build the ultimate team of athletes to compete in ways that only they can imagine, and that promise has just taken on a totally new dimension that we’re honored to have the creative opportunity to bring to life, and excited for our gamers to enjoy.WWE SUPERSTARS SET TO CROSS OVER WITH TODAY’S TOP ATHLETES IN ULTIMATE RIVALS: THE COURT – FOX Sports
Ben’s latest tweet hinting at this announcement from yesterday may even give us a hint at future additions to the Ultimate Rivals roster, quoting legendary WWE Hall of Famers such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ric Flair, The Rock, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, and Kurt Angle.
I can’t say anything more (yet), but I can tell you with all certainty that Ben and the Bit Fry team haven’t even gotten warmed up. This is Larry Bird winning the 1988 3-Point contest without even taking his shooting jacket off.
We can’t wait to see what the Bit Fry team announces next, and we look forward to getting our hands on The Court when it hits Apple Arcade, Steam, and consoles later this year.
