Boxing action game due out December in Japan.

Hajime no Ippo

Bandai Namco is making a Hajime no Ippo game for PlayStation 3, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting is a boxing action game due out in Japan on December 11 for 8,280 yen. It will revive some of the series’ famous scenes.

Our source questions whether the game’s viewpoint is first-person, which we take to mean the screenshots in the magazine depict the game that way.
