After a week of speculation as to who the EA Sports UFC mystery character is, we finally have confirmation that is none other than martial arts legend, Bruce Lee.
Over the last week, EA Sports has been revealing one clue a day before they would officially reveal who the mystery character was on April 6th. As of publishing, however, EA Sports has changed the official reveal date to April 7th.
Not to worry, however, as GameStop already revealed that Bruce Lee was the mystery character in their stores today:
FanSided contacted a local GameStop to confirm, and they stated that Lee was only available if the game was preordered. Along with the fact that GameStop revealed Lee as the mystery character, they also confirmed that the release date of the game is June 17th, as previously rumored.
If you recall, NBA Basketball legend Shaquille O’neal was a playable character in the UFC Undisputed 2010. Clearly the EA team wanted to go a different route, by making a martial arts legend a playable character in EA Sports UFC. In one of the clues leading up to the reveal, EA Sports announced that Bruce Lee will be playable in four different weight classes.
Earlier today, EA revealed the official cover for the game featuring Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, which you can see here.
