About this project
King of the Ring: The Next Generation Competitive Fight Game
Nexersys is creating the first arcade game that puts gamers in a virtual fighting ring and allows them to test their boxing and MMA skills by throwing real strikes and making contact with a real target.
From Fingers to Fists
Say goodbye to the mundane button pushing of past fighting games and say hello to throwing real strikes with your fists, elbows and knees. Comparable arcade fighting games do not provide an actual target that gamers can hit, Nexersys does. Nexersys already has proven the physical equipment and machine to be successful in the fitness space, so now it’s time to bring the experience to the arcade with a beefier machine and an awesome new game, King of the Ring.
From Fitness to Gaming
Nexersys Corporation has created a professional-grade multimedia fitness product that delivers the motivation of a personal trainer, the benefits of a boxing and mixed martial arts high-intensity interval-training workout and the entertainment and feedback available from today’s gaming and computer technology. Nexersys has proven itself to be one of the most innovative and effective products in the fitness space and due to popular demand from current customers, it’s time to take over the gaming and arcade market.
The physical equipment of the Nexersys arcade model will differ from the Fitness model in that it will not include the leg pads, the arms will be doubled in length and there will be a fun marquee and shroud included to add to the experience.
The GAME: King of the Ring
King of the Ring will be the first Nexersys arcade game that will feature two different game types, Beat Down and Fasts Fists.
- Beat Down will allow gamers to spar against 3D Fighters or their friends. With real-life graphics on-screen and the ability to throw a punch and make contact with an actual target, it’s the next best thing to being in a real boxing ring.
- Fast Fists will allow gamers to train like the pros with a trainer in the ring and will test gamers’ reaction speed to the trainers’ prompts. The trainer will wear body pads and mitts just like professional trainers do and it’s the player’s job to strike the target pad.
The Great Equalizer
King of the Ring will allow gamers from all shapes and sizes and experience levels to have a great experience and compete equally. King of the Ring is not about the biggest and strongest, it is about the best and brightest.
