San Francisco, CA– March 10, 2011– Booyah, a leading social web and mobile entertainment company, has officially launched Nightclub City DJ Rivals, the first rhythm-based role-playing game for iPhone and iPod touch. Nightclub City DJ Rivals lets players battle to the beat by tapping and scratching to music tracks in a quest to defeat real-world challengers and unlock new items and abilities to be the best DJ in the world.
