Armadillo Studios has signed a new partnership with Brazilian professional mixed martial artist Amanda Nunes, in which the studio will aim to capture Nunes’ successful career by creating a slot game.
Razvan Haiduc, CEO of Armadillo Studios, stated: “As a fan of MMA myself, I’m very excited to be working with Amanda. Her global presence is huge, and we are ready to use it to provide some well-needed gender balance to the Casino vertical.
“Armadillo Studios has ambitious plans for 2022, and our tie with Amanda is the first step in the right direction. This branded game is set to hit the market in the second half of 2022 and we are confident it will be a massive success.”
Known as the Lioness, Nunes is widely regarded as the greatest female MMA fighter of all time.
She is the current reigning champion of the UFC Women’s Featherweight division, was the first woman to become a two-division UFC champion and the third fighter in UFC’s history to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously.
Nunes commented: “I’m thrilled to be involved in this awesome project. Having a brand-new slot title made from scratch in my image by a US game studio is an exciting adventure and rare opportunity. I hope that sports fans all over the world will be just as excited as I am and curious enough to take it for a spin.”
Earlier this year, Armadillo Studios reached an agreement with EveryMatrix to develop online casino games based on US market-specific game logic and player preferences.
