New WWE games for PS2, XBOX And GBA Announced

 

'The Toy Headquarters' unleashed some huge news today as it revealed its future publishing plans for the company's WWE wrestling franchises. Announcing a total of three games in all, THQ not only addressed the question of when gamers can expect its next batch of grappling titles, but has also settled the question of what these titles are going to be called.

 

PS2: At the top of the announcement list was the revelation of the all-new Smackdown! title, WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw. Once again developed by the team at Yuke's, this sixth installment of mega-selling franchise will feature abundance of new options and games modes; with a particular attention paid to improving on the graphics for a more realistic presentation. The game will be released near the end of October/beginning of November.

 

XBOX: THQ also confirmed that it has done away with its Raw franchise altogether and has instead replaced it with the former GameCube property, WrestleMania. To be more formally known as WWE WrestleMania XXI, the game will not only boast an all-new developer (Studio Gigante of Tao Feng fame), it will also introduce plenty of original game modes and improved television style visuals. Expect to see it debut simultaneously with the WrestleMania XXI event next year.

 

GameBoy Advance: The final game on the list is the all-new Game Boy Advance SKU, WWE Survivor Series. The first game for the GBA WWE title in two years, Survivor Series should boast a ton of new features over its predecessor in addition to a variety of match types. No other details other than its release date (Holiday 2004) were given.

 

SmackDown! vs. Raw... so much better than 'SmackDown! Evolution' and 'SmackDown!: WordLife' :).

Sounds like a decent name for the PS2 game, i am glad actually that it isnt a wrestlers catchphrase! The title does lead me to wonder how the story mode will go. Will it focus on RAW vs Smackdown matches or will it still be the "regular" mode like in HCTP?
