Vivid Games' boxing sim Real Boxing is punching its way on to PlayStation Vita this August, the developer says. The Unreal Engine's 3-powered brawler will feature the touch controls of the original version as well as physical controls thanks, to the Vita's buttons.

The Vita version of the game will appear on the PlayStation Store in August and will come with the iOS version's career mode, training, and fighter customization. Meanwhile, a Vivid Games representative confirmed to Joystiq that there'll be local and online multiplayer, as well as some special tournaments.

"With the exception of the cardiovascular benefits or the threat of actual, physical pain, Real Boxing is exactly that - real boxing," says Remi Koscielny, CEO of developer Vivid Games. "We've crammed everything fans love about the sport of boxing into the Vita, making it one of the most comprehensive sports titles available for the system."

Real Boxing was released on iOS devices in November 2012 and then came on to Android earlier this month. The game is currently available on the iTunes App store for $0.99 and on the Google Play store for $3.99.

"The detail begins with each boxer, designed from the laces up to be as realistic as possible. Each boxer has been motion captured in the ring, with every punch, every jab, every jaw-shattering uppercut portrayed in stunning definition. Real-time deformation technology portrays fighters' facial injuries in gory detail, bones crunching as punches fly, a mist of sweat and blood filling the ring," the company says in a release.
