The BJJ community has been waiting for this since the first time that an MMA game was released, but the world’s first BJJ video game, BEJJ: The Jiu-Jitsu Game, should be available to download in the second half of 2020. The video game comes courtesy of the team at Smash Mountain Studio, including their founders and resident BJJ practitioners; Luiz Eduardo Adler and Pedro Thiago Mourao, who are now in the final stages of development.

BEJJ: The Jiu-Jitsu Game is set for release as a mobile game for both Android and IOS platforms, the company CEO guarantees that it will be available for release by the end of 2020 and that it will be free to download for all. As the game is in it’s infancy, it’s unlikely to contain unusual or unique submissions that don’t actually happen in BJJ competition very often but judging from the footage that’s been released so far, the video game seems to have a complex system for both standing and grounded grappling.

I hate to be Debbie downer, but it seems like a risky idea to make a video game for a sport that no one watches unless they train, and it seems likely that the controls will be ungodly complex.

It seems like it's kind of a card game as far as controls.
But you nailed it, very risky for such a niche market.

instead of calling it work, realize it is play

better to practice real jujitsu in that time trying to learn all the moves in the game
