San Mateo, Calif. -- Can't wait for November to punch your vote? Sorrent announced the launch of Bush vs. Kerry Boxing, the first and only politically charged game for mobile phones. Bush vs. Kerry Boxing allows mobile subscribers to step into the ring as either candidate and take their best shot at knocking out their opponent using signature Bush vs. Kerry Boxing moves, including the "Right Wing Hook" and the "Far Left Jab."
"People are anxious to cast their vote in the upcoming election and are looking for ways to voice their political opinions," said Robert Nashak, vice president of production, Sorrent. "Bush vs. Kerry Boxing gives mobile subscribers around the country a fun and playful way to show their political support."
As if interest in the campaigns and anticipation for the election in November wasn't enough, the results of every match between Bush and Kerry on mobile phones across the country will be automatically posted to Sorrent's web giving visitors a glimpse, at any moment, of which candidate is leading the "Pugilist Poll." In addition, ten percent of proceeds from Bush vs. Kerry Boxing will go to Rock the Vote, a non-profit, non-partisan organization with the mission of engaging youth in the political process by incorporating the entertainment community and youth culture into its activities.
Bush vs. Kerry Boxing features two modes -- "The Main Event," a down-and-dirty clash between George W. Bush and John Kerry; and "Campaign Mode," which challenges subscribers to fight their way through the ranks of several of the opposing party's key political figures.
