Moreover, the Bellator Fighting Championship also had a video game developed by 345 Games in 2012. It was initially released on PlayStation 3, but now this fighting sports game is mostly available on Xbox 360. The game didn’t get as much popularity as the UFC games, most possibly because the original tournament’s popularity is inferior to UFC.

Was Bellator MMA Onslaught good?

This 2012 fighting sports video game got lost in time. Possibly, no one even remembers this game’s existence. However, was this game bad, or did it just fail to get fans’ attention? This game was a very hopeful project by 345 Games, a game-developing company under the Viacom Entertainment Group, which also aired the program.

The game used arcade-fighting style game mechanics and was visually appealing if we were talking about the game graphics in 2012. The game had a tournament style similar to the original event. In Bellator, tournaments are held to select the fighters for the championship rather than promoters choosing the fighters.
