Meet the Hilarious Parodied Personalities from ‘Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution’ at the Official Website

Atari comes out swinging with the launch of the official website for Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution at Visitors to the site will be introduced to the larger-than-life personalities from the game through videos featuring voiceover by Alan Ford, the British actor who portrayed the tough-talking ‘Brick Top’ in the acclaimed 2000 movie Snatch. In the Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution videos, Ford brings his inimitable cockney delivery to bear as hard-talking boxing promoter Diamond Jim who really takes the gloves off when introducing the likes of Mosh Deck’em and old friend Fight Clubber.

Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution features a roster of 18 wildly caricatured cartoony would-be boxers from the worlds of sports, music and movies. The introductory videos narrated by Alan Ford give a lively blow by blow account of the fighting histories and gruelling training regimes of these super-sized egos.

Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution is scheduled for European release exclusively for Wii on 17 March 2009. For more information on Ready 2 Rumble Revolution, visit

Nintendo Asks U.S. Trade Representative to Help Combat Global Video Game Piracy
Nintendo Calls Out Brazil, China, Korea, Mexico, Paraguay and Spain

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo has outlined a list of countries around the globe that remain leaders in denying adequate and effective protection of video game products. In its annual comments to the U.S. Trade Representative under the “Special 301” process, Nintendo has singled out countries where piracy is rampant and has asked the United States to take further steps to combat it.

Nintendo reports that piracy of its most popular products, the Nintendo DS™ and Wii™ systems, has increased during the year. Nintendo attributes this increase to the availability of circumvention devices, such as “game copiers” and “mod chips.” These devices skirt the product security embedded in Nintendo’s famous products and enable the play of illegal Nintendo software.
