WWE Day of Reckoning 2 ships to retail

Weighing in at less than 1 pound, THQ's GameCube grappler makes its way to the retail ring.


The Day of Reckoning is nigh. Er...again.

The latest collaboration between THQ and the SmackDown! developers at Yuke's, the GameCube-exclusive Day of Reckoning 2, has shipped to retailers.

Building on the first Day of Reckoning (recently added to Nintendo's "Player's Choice" line of games), Day of Reckoning 2 offers players more than 45 playable characters, from current stars like Batista and John Cena to legends like Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart. The game's story mode was also overhauled, and there's a new user-controlled submission system as well.

Developer Yuke's has made a name for itself in wrestling games by having developed the SmackDown! series and Rumble Roses on the PlayStation 2, as well as previous WWE titles on the GameCube and Dreamcast.

Be sure to check back later today for GameSpot's full review of the game. Day of Reckoning 2 is rated T for Teen and retails for $49.99.
