THQ and JAKKS Pacific have announced that there is a new wrestling game under development for Xbox 360.
WWE: SmackDown vs. RAW 2008 will feature a number of new gameplay elements like, for example, eight new unique modes that all have their own strategies and features, and whole new Struggle Submission System controls that assure an intuitive gameplay experience. Realism and game strategies are also promised to be top notch. In addition to this, the game will this time fully feature the ECW wrestlers, arenas, and weapons. Also, many ideas from gamers all over the world have been taken into consideration and may make it into the game. Expect to hear a lot more about this game, as well as the roster, as the year progresses.
The game will be released near the end of the year 2007 for Xbox 360 and other platforms.
As we formerly announced, THQ held a tournament in Detroit, where WWE superstars competed against each other playing the last year´s edition of SmackDown vs. RAW. Last years´ winner Shelton Benjamin did not compete this year, so the finale came down to Caribbean Cool Carlito going at it against the ECW wrestler Elijah Burke. Despite Carlito´s valiant efforts, the New Breeder played his way to victory, therefore being crowned the videogame champ of the WWE.
