Get ready to hit the streets of New York with EA GAMES™ and Def Jam in the ultimate battle for control of the hip-hop underground in Def Jam® Fight For NY™ .

The ruthless gangster D-Mob has escaped from police custody and returns home to find his stranglehold on the New York underground fight club circuit threatened by brutal newcomer Crow. As one of D-Mob's crew, it's time to step up and take Crow down. Succeed and the world is yours. Fail and… well, you don't want to fail.

Def Jam Fight For NY features a totally revamped fighting engine challenging gamers to master multiple fighting styles, interact with their environments, and get creative with dozens of weapons, like bottles, tools, and two-by-fours.

Def Jam Fight For NY delivers the biggest stars and the hottest music. Throughout the game's gritty Story Mode, players will encounter more than 40 of today's most recognizable hip-hop artists and personalities, from Ludacris and Busta Rhymes to Lil' Kim and Carmen Electra. The game also includes an over-the-top soundtrack loaded with hot new tracks and old school hits from Def Jam and beyond.

Key Features:

•  New Fighting Engine : A new fighting engine challenges gamers to master multiple fighting disciplines, take advantage of the interactive environments and utilize dozens of weapons to make a name for themselves.

•  Customizable Fighting Styles : Gamers can master five unique fighting styles— street fighting, kickboxing, martial arts, submission, and wrestling—and can combine up to three styles to create devastating hybrid fighting styles, complete with character-specific "blazin' moves" to finish off your opponents.

•  Weapons : Dozens of weapons up the ante—from one-use environmental objects like bottles to persistent multi-use equalizers including wrenches and two-by-fours.

•  Gameplay Modes : With 10 distinct match types ranging from intense one-on-one combat to demolition matches where destroying your opponent's ride is the name of the game, Def Jam Fight For NY goes well beyond the ring.
