WWE Legends of WrestleMania

In addition to the popular Smackdown vs. Raw video game series, WWE/THQ are bringing forth another pro-wrestling game entitled "WWE Legends of Wrestlemania". THQ will release the game for the high-end gaming systems, PS3 and Xbox 360, but no other gaming systems have been included at this point.


It's called WWE Legends of WrestleMania, it'll star former Superstars, and it's in addition to the WWE SmackDown vs. RAW franchise. Details are still a bit hazy at this point in time, but a THQ press release says the game will arrive in March 2009 to coincide with WrestleMania 25, in Houston, Texas.

"We have generated significant year-over-year growth in key global territories with WWE-licensed videogames, including tremendous success with the WWE SmackDown vs. RAW franchise," said Peter Matiss, vice president, global brand management, THQ. "The development capabilities afforded by next generation hardware, combined with our established history and deep understanding of fighting videogames, allow us to leverage the strength of the WWE brand to further extend our leadership in the fighting videogame genre and bring this new property to market."

Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 has tentatively been scheduled for a release in Fall 2008.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 is currently available for Xbox360, Playstation 3 and other popular gaming systems.
