World Championship Boxing Manager 2 release date

Publisher Ziggurat Interactive and developer Mega Cat Studios have passed along a release date for the console version of World Championship Boxing Manager 2. On Switch, the game will be available on May 17, 2023.

World Championship Boxing Manager 2 was revealed last February. It’s a business tycoon and sports simulation experience as well as the official sequel to the 1991 predecessor.

Below is an official overview with more details:

Brought to life with hand-drawn 32-bit visuals, World Championship Boxing Manager 2 is the official sequel to its 1991 predecessor. Players will enlist promising amateur competitive fighters and train them from the ground up on their path to the world championship. They’ll manage their training schedules — including fitness training — to create the best balance for their roster. To keep them on the path to glory, they’ll also need to hire the best staff, gain supporters at all levels, and promote their fighters. The game features former pro boxers Rocky Marciano, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Sue “Tiger Lily” Fox as boxers within the game, along with a roster of fantastic fictional fighters, coaches, and training staff. A well-managed team will rise to the top, but one misstep will lead to a TKO!

Key Features

  • Keep Those Hands Up: An awesome stable of sluggers and staff, including iconic licensed characters, Sue “Tiger Lily” Fox, Rocky Marciano and Sugar Ray Robinson!
  • Honoring Boxing History: Experience the everyday struggles of the boxing world with eight story mode scenarios available to play
  • Bit by Bit: 32-bit visuals with modern features, including dynamic lighting and a fight cam to watch your fighter duke it out in real-time
  • Skill Check: A stylish new skill system lets players build the pugilist of their dreams in a streamlined experience. Be it a hard-hitting ring king, a one-punch wonder, or a super stamina warrior of the knock-down-drag-out fight; it’s up to the player to create a training path to victory.
  • You’re Hired!: A complete hiring system lets players ensure they have the best training team (and business managers) for their fighters — even if some of that staff might be a little unorthodox!
  • Twitch But Make it Integrated: Twitch integration allows streamers and their viewers to take part in the boxing experience together with viewer-triggered random in-game events that can help or hinder the player.
  • Kids Got A Lotta Heart: Jam-packed with the humor, heart, and personality that made the original game so popular!
