It seems the Nintendo download services are options publishers can take when trying to reintroduce old games to new audiences, and Gammick Entertainment is no stranger to that notion; having already brought Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ to the DSi Shop a year after its 2008 DS release, the Spanish publisher is preparing for another retail-to-download release in the form of Animal Boxing.
A recent ESRB rating has revealed that Animal Boxing will be an upcoming release in the DSiWare range of titles and if you're not familiar with the game that pits a human against various animals in a ring, here's a brief summary taken from the ratings page:
Animal Boxing is a fighting game in which players – through the eyes of a customizable human boxer – compete in rounds of boxing with animal-like characters. Using the DS stylus, players tap on the screen to jab and draw lines to hook and uppercut. Animal boxers can get knocked out if players land enough punches, while visible injuries during the match are limited to the animals getting black eyes.
There's no word on pricing or release dates yet, but you can be sure to read about it here when we know.
