While the game remains the same, the sequel to Def Jam Vendetta will have a new handle. In today's news-rich Electronic Arts conference call, the publisher said the follow-up to the best-selling rapper-wrestling game will now go by the street name of...Def Jam: Fight For NY. No new details were given about the renamed game, which is being developed by EA Canada.
Def Jam: Fight For NY will see players assuming the role of a ruthless NYC street fighter battling for control of the hip-hop underground. The game boasts an all-new fighting engine that allows players to customize multiple fighting styles as they progress through the game. More than 70 characters will be featured in Def Jam: Fight For NY, including more than 35 hip-hop personalities, such as Busta Rhymes, Lil' Kim, Ludacris, Method Man, Redman, Slick Rick, Snoop Dogg, and Carmen Electra.
