THQ has released the first direct-feed video footage from WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It for the Sony PlayStation 2. The four video clips show off a variety of male and female wrestlers in action, including The Rock, Kurt Angle, Lita, Undertaker, Triple H, Chris Jericho, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. The wrestlers' intro sequences, including the Undertaker riding in on his motorcycle; a ladder match; and a great two-on-one confrontation involving The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Triple H are also shown.

Although WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It retains the gameplay feel of the second game in the series, it will introduce new visual and presentation elements. For example, following a stellar finishing move, the camera will pan over to the Titantron, which will show a panoramic replay of the move. Additionally, the game will feature scripted story elements, such as wrestlers entering the ring and backstage cutscenes. Commentary in the game will be provided by Sunday Night Heat announcers Michael Cole and Tazz.

WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It will include more than 50 wrestlers, 10 backstage environments, and 78 types of matches. All the familiar matches, including hell in a cell, survival, cage, ladder, table, TLC, hardcore, king of the ring, and handicap, are in the game. Backstage environments include a lobby, a parking garage, a plaza, and a boiler room, among others.

The game is currently scheduled for release this fall on the PS2. It is being developed by Yukes, which also created the first two SmackDown! games on the PlayStation.
