Moreover, 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 mainly available on Xbox 360. The game did not have as much popularity than the UFC games, probably because the popularity of the original tournament is lower than that of the UFC.

Was Bellator MMA Onslaught any good?

This 2012 combat sports video game got lost in time. Maybe no one even remembers the existence of this game. However, was this game bad or just didn’t catch the attention of the fans? This game was a very promising project of 345 Games, a game development company under Viacom Entertainment Group, which also aired the program.

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