THQ announces new WWE title

THQ has announced a new addition to its WWE family of games as part of its full-year financial report.

Legendsof Wrestlemania is due for release in March next year on next-gen formats.

THQ CEO Brian Farrell told investors:

Our new Legends game is scheduled to launch in conjunction with the WWE’s Annual WrestleMania Event next March.

We look at these legends of WrestleMania as a totally unique extension. What it’s going to feature is a lot of the older wrestlers that have retired and part of the history in legacy of wrestling and we think the WWE fan, and our research shows there are very avid fans, will be given a new experience. You will see it’s a lot more arcade play-based.

"It has a very different feel to it [to WWE], so we think it’s additive to the brand. We don’t think it puts up the same numbers as SmackDown versus Raw, but that it will reach a core part of that audience that buy a second game.”
