LAS VEGAS – Break some hearts and some bones on Valentine’s Day 2012.

The latest installment of the award-winning “UFC Undisputed” videogame franchise is slated for a Feb. 14 release, according to company executives.

“UFC Undisputed 3″ follows two bestselling versions of the game, and this coming year, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva graces the cover of the retooled game, which is available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The first installment of “UFC Undisputed” debuted in May 2009 and the second in May 2010. The most adventurist MMA title to date, “Undisputed” had sold millions of copies, earned very positive reviews, and won an array of industry awards. The game was developed by Yuke’s and is published by THQ.

“UFC Undisputed 3″ includes the addition of the UFC’s bantamweight and featherweight divisions, as well as a “PRIDE rules” game-play option and fighter walkouts.

The upcoming version also has updated gameplay options that allow for simpler controls in the sometimes-complex title. New positions such as a standing guillotine choke and seated positions against the cage were also implemented. Additionally, fighters can now sway on the floor to avoid damage, and the bouts conclude with a FightMetric-style data presentation.

“‘UFC Undisputed 3′ is on track to deliver an incredible virtual MMA experience unlike any other,” Danny Bilson, executive vice president of core games at THQ, recently stated. “This product is intense, engaging and highly competitive while still being extremely accessible, making it a must-have for millions of UFC fans, traditional fighting game enthusiasts and more casual sports fans around the world.”

Silva recently beat out Frankie Edgar, Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre and Cain Velasquez in a fan vote to earn cover status.
