Reality Fighters is an augmented reality fighting game that allows you to take pictures of people and then digitise them into the game. Using the PS Vita's cameras, the game also allows you fight in whatever environment the camera is pointing at such as an office, patio or even a desk in front of you.
The game was developed by Novarama (who also developed the Invizimals series of games) and was published by Sony Computer Entertainment America as a launch title for the PlayStation Vita in Europe and later on March 13th 2012 in North America.
Mr. Miyagi Cameo
Reality fighters includes Kesuke Miyagi from the Karate Kid series as a playable fighter. Before making their decision, the team at Novarama were deciding on other celebrity cameos including Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, and even Mike Myers. Producer Mitsuo Hirakawa ultimately decided on Mr. Miyagi because "It became clear that Mr. Miyagi ticked all the boxes for us in terms of a true master who has a humorous side. The Karate Kid movie being a worldwide hit and a film that we were all huge fans of also helped a little". Since the actor Pat Morita passed away back in 2005, voice actor Jim Ward will be playing the role of the iconic character.
