THQ has announced the release of WWF Royal Rumble for the Sega Dreamcast. Developed by Yukes, the company responsible for WWF Smackdown! for the Sony PlayStation and several other wrestling games, WWF Royal Rumble will feature more than 20 WWF wrestlers, including The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, and Rikishi. Living up to its Royal Rumble moniker, the game will give players the opportunity to battle with up to nine wrestlers in the ring at once.
"WWF Royal Rumble is going to blow away both WWF and Dreamcast enthusiasts," said Jennifer Richmond, vice president of marketing for JAKKS Pacific. "The hottest license in interactive entertainment just got hotter."
"With WWF WrestleMania 2000 for the Nintendo 64 and WWF SmackDown! for the Sony PlayStation continuing to top the charts in the US and abroad, we're excited to now bring gamers the next generation of WWF gameplay with WWF Royal Rumble for the Sega Dreamcast," said Peter Dille, vice president of marketing for THQ.
WWF Royal Rumble is a direct port of the arcade version, which was also developed by Yukes.
