Def Jam Vendetta sequel planned
By JON WALDMAN - SLAM! Wrestling


Get ready for round two of hip hop hammering, as Def Jam and EA Sports will be issuing the second game in the Vendetta series this fall.

The new game, simply titled Def Jam Vendetta II, will feature 70 fighters, of which approximately half will be some of the hottest names in rap, including Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dog and Ludacris. Female characters, such as Lil' Kim and Carmen Electra, will also be a part of the title.

The game is the follow-up to the very popular Def Jam Vendetta title, which was released in 2002. The relationship between the two companies, as Def Jam President and CEO Kevin Liles said in a release, has been ground-breaking for the two industries. "The Def Jam-EA relationship is once again on the forefront of industry-leading entertainment with Def Jam VENDETTA II," he said. "By fusing hip-hop culture with innovative, addictive gameplay, Def Jam VENDETTA II is the ultimate interactive hip hop lifestyle product. It redefines the gaming experience."

Def Jam Vendetta II will be available for Playstation 2, X-Box and Nintendo Gamecube. It is currently slated for a fall 2004 release.
