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 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.

•  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.
