There are many boxing games out there and Real Boxing delivers great looking graphics to devices running NVIDIA’s Tegra 3, for just under $5. Powered by Unreal Engine 3, it features more realistic movement thanks to motion capture from real boxers. Fights take place in six different arenas and several mini games such as skipping rope, mini bag, or heavy bag, help train your boxer. Career Mode features over 30 fights and three belt titles to grab. You can also customize your fighter’s appearance and unlock extras such as new opponents, equipment, or clothing. Read more

First look at Real Boxing demo on NVIDIA’s Project Shield


NVIDIA has been doing a great job of hyping up their Tegra 4 powered Project Shield lately, showing us all kinds of things the little device can do.

Vivid Games is stepping in with their Real Boxing title to show us how to do Project Shield gaming right. It’s a unique boxing/RPG hybrid that’s finely tuned to the hardware in Project Shield, and provides incredible graphics and controls on top of fantastic gameplay.
