So after taking a years break THQ has gone ahead and announced UFC Undisputed 3 for release on January 3 2012 and it sounds like they are going big with it. A roster of over 150 fighters, brand new bantamweight and featherweight divisions for the first time ever in an MMA game and perhaps most exciting of all a PRIDE mode! The new PRIDE mode allows you to fight in traditional PRIDE events and utilize their rules set where you can do all kinds of crazy stuff, such as kick dudes in the head while they are on the ground. Perhaps best of all, the classic PRIDE announce team, Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros have provided their voices for the game. Also customizable entrances should hopefully really allow us to recreate some of the crazy walkouts seen by the likes of Kazushi Sakuraba. THQ also talked about including a new simplified control mode ala Marvel VS Capcom 3, not so sure how I feel about that but much like simple mode on MVC3 it will just probably end up and unused feature. Now there is nothing left to do but wait for the sizeable roster to leak out (especially exciting now that the UFC owns Strikeforce) and for THQ to give us a look at the gameplay since apparently their is a drastic change in the submission system..... again.
