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 MMAwill 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 PlayStation3 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.
