THQ and JAKKS Pacific today announced that WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 for the PlayStation Portable is scheduled for worldwide release in December. Breaking new ground for the PSP system, WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 joins the highly successful line of WWE licensed video games, including last year’s WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW for the PlayStation 2, which shipped more than two million units worldwide.
“THQ is the industry leader in handheld gaming, and taking the highly successful WWE SmackDown vs. RAW franchise to the PSP system was a natural move for us,” said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. “The WWE SmackDown vs. RAW franchise is an ideal application for the PSP system, offering a great pick-up-and-play experience, along with numerous multiplayer options, a robust fighting system and an extensive Season Mode.”
