Some parts of the internet became very excited an hour ago when 505 Games put out a press release entitled “Supremacy MMA takes the fight to the streets with PlayStation Vita this fall”.
However, the publisher has now confirmed to MCV that this is not a premature date leak, saying that the date mentioned “is only speculative”.
Indeed, those who read to the bottom of the press release will have noticed the following clarification:
“Supremacy MMA will be the only MMA fighting game this year when it bullies its way onto store shelves on September 20, 2011 for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and then onto PlayStation Vita for Holiday 2011.”
Vita’s actual launch date remains a thing of mystery. It’s expected to hit at least one territory this year, though bets are divided on whether that will be Europe or Japan.
