Midway unleashes TNA Anger Angle onto the internet with The Sun Online

Starting from August 1st visitors to the wrestling pages of The Sun Online will have a unique chance to face-off against TNA Wrestling Superstar Kurt Angle, the only Olympic gold medal winner in professional wrestling history, courtesy of the action-packed online game Anger Angle.

Players of the fast and furious game, which will be hosted exclusively on The Sun Online for 5 days, are invited to push the former TNA World Champion over the edge by repeatedly striking him with a virtual plank of wood. The more hits players dish out, the more Kurt's rage gauge increases, until the famously hot-headed wrestler literally explodes with anger. Kurt is just one of a host of TNA grapplers set to feature in Midway's forthcoming TNA iMPACT! videogame, due for release on Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 this September.

Aidan Minter, Senior European Brand Manager at Midway, commented on the launch "Midway is excited to promote TNA iMPACT!, the most authentic wrestling game using the Unreal 3engine and to be able to reach such a huge sporting fanbase with the Sun and its dedicated wrestling audience and online coverage."

Assistant Sports Editor at The Sun, Mark Gilbert, added "We're pleased to launch Anger Angle here on The Sun. We're very excited about Midway's first ever wrestling game TNA iMPACT! and are looking forward to it's release in September"
