Issue with PlayStation®3 Real Steel Update Package

An issue is occurring with the update package released on 10/31 for the PS3 version of Real Steel. After loading the game, and then attempting to connect online, the game freezes.

As shown below, “NOW CHECKING” appears, and the game freezes.

We had announced a hold on the release of this update, but currently it is still possible to download it. We are currently in the process of taking down the problematic data and are working on a fix.


We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused to users whose game has frozen on attempting to connect online. Once we have resolved and have a solution to the problem, an announcement will be made on both the Real Steel official site and blog. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we resolve this issue.

Major Updates are Here!

Well friends, the first installment of major updates to Real Steel is finally here. I hope you all enjoy yourselves a NEW Real Steel gaming experience!

I’d also like to mention that, starting today, the game will be released in Russia, meaning you can now battle against players from 30 countries around the world on the Xbox360®, and 44 countries on the PlayStation®3! In games and comics, Russia is often portrayed as a formidable force to be reckoned with…could this mean that a new group of super-elite players is joining in on the action!? (Let’s not forget that ZEUS was originally manufactured in Russia…)

My next post will contain another big announcement about the game’s updates, so check back again soon!

A Final Word before the Update!

New updates for the game are just around the corner–and yet there is still some info I have yet to tell! Lemme tell you 2 more quick things!

1. New Tech Moves

2 new, powerful tech moves will be added!

Iron Fist: A move based on the art of karate.

Othello Grab: A submission move that leaves your opponent’s back vulnerable.

2. Exclusive Update for PlayStation®3

PlayStation®3 users, I am so sorry to have kept you waiting. I’m happy to inform you that all of the content previously released exclusively on the Xbox360® will finally be made available. New robot parts, tech moves, alternate color variations, and more–no doubt delivering you a greater Real Steel experience than ever before.

Look forward to all of the above coming out the first week of November!

*The release date for downloadable content on the PlayStation®3 version will differ depending on your region. Initial release is planned for 10/31, but in some regions, new content may not be available until 11/7. For this reason, it may be difficult to find a battle opponent online between 10/31 -11/7. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this.

What Else is New in the Real Steel Game

I’d like to give you some more info on the 1st anniversary updates.

I’m sure what you all are looking forward to most is the new robot parts. …introducing, MING!

This robot was designed after a kung fu master, and is a well-rounded set of parts notable for its fist’s revolutionary open finger design. Strap these parts to your robot, along with Iron Fist (one of the new tech moves), and you’ll be well on your way to crushing your rivals!

Buy the parts individually, or get them discounted by getting the whole set!

A Look at the Rankings after 1 Year…

The new updates are to commemorate the 1 year anniversary of the game’s release…which means you’ve been enjoying one year of intense battling!

Let’s take a look at the leaderboards, exactly 1 year since the game’s release.

Real Steel Game—Rebooted!!

Hello Real Steel Fans! It’s been a little since we talked last, but I’d like to announce a major update being released today for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade version of Real Steel!

Allow me to take this opportunity to talk about some of the changes.

1. Tutorial

You now have the option to play a tutorial when fighting against Scrapbot, the first enemy at UNDERWORLD, Stage 1. Playing the tutorial will help you get a clearer understanding of how the game works.

2. Game Rebalancing

Adjustments have been made to enemy AI difficulty, and the amount of skill points & prize money you are awarded to make the game easier to play. Even if you are just starting the game, you’ll be able to catch up to those veteran players quicker than was previously possible.

3. TBR Regulation Setting for Online Battles

You now have the option to set a Total Battle Rating regulation for what robots can be used in online game sessions, making it easier to find opponents that more closely match your robot’s strength.

4. Total Battle Rating Limit Removed

Previously, a limit was imposed to prevent Total Battle Rating from exceeding 9999, but this limit has been removed—allowing you to create super robots more powerful than was previously possible!

But that’s not all! Plenty of new downloadable content has also been added to the game! More robot assembly parts! More tech moves! A whole new gaming experience awaits!!

Details on new downloadable content will be revealed on the Real Steel Game Official Home Page, as well as various other gaming news sites, so keep you eyes out for Real Steel news!

*This update is only available for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade version of the game.

Hey everyone, another update from Ue-2 here.

Recently, I had an interview which was featured on
This resulted in a bunch of my friends telling me I’ve put on a few pounds…
(I tell them they’re “pounds of steel”, but no one listens.)

Ahem, before my train of thought derails any further.
The Real Steel film was finally released in Japan, and it has taken the
No. 1 slot on “”, (a popular Japanese movie site)!

And timed with the film release in Japan (though not intentionally…),
we are releasing new game content for the Xbox 360 version of the game.
