The Bouncer Goes Dolby

Square's beat-'em-up will be the first PlayStation 2 game to feature Dolby Digital 5.1 sound.


Square announced today that The Bouncer, its Final Fight-inspired game for the PlayStation 2, is the first PS2 game to feature Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. The Bouncer has already been released in Japan and will be released in the US in March.

"Our commitment to giving gamers the best and most realistic gaming experience led us to use Dolby Digital 5.1 sound for The Bouncer," said Takashi Tokita, director of The Bouncer for Square Co. Ltd. "Dolby Digital draws the player right into the action with the sounds of the colossal aircraft engine, gigantic explosions, and ambient street life."
