EA confirms Bruce Lee as the UFC mystery fighter

EA was running an ad campaign that was teasing fans about the identity of the mysterious fighter in the upcoming EA Sports’ UFC 2014 game. We reported that martial arts master, Bruce Lee, was likely the mystery fighter.

Now EA Sports has officially announced that it is indeed Bruce Lee. This was made possible with the collaboration of both EA Sports and Bruce Lee Enterprises. Bruce Lee Enterprises provided EA Sports with a lot of material to help them create a very authentic Bruce Lee. Art Director Ian Lloyd talked about the process:

This does not just look like Bruce Lee. It is Bruce Lee. The way he carries himself, his fighting stance, his rippling physique, devastating speed, signature strikes and accompanying yells, whoops and shrieks.

We have summoned this pinnacle of human strength, speed and spirit into our world and it has truly been an honor and a career highlight for us to do so.

To unlock Bruce Lee, you’ll need to finish the campaign mode on Pro difficulty or higher. If you don’t want to “earn” it, you can pre-order the game and use him upon starting the game. EA Sports UFC will be available in Spring for the PS4 and Xbox One.

So far the screenshots are looking pretty good. Now I can just imagine Hollywood bringing iconic figures back from the dead in future movies. But first, we need to solve the uncanny valley, unless you’re okay with zombie Bruce Lee. In that case, that actually might be cool.
