WCW Mayhem (PSX) Preview

Publisher: EA

UPDATED: September 17, 1999

EA reveals more details on the highly-anticipated WCW(tm) Mayhem for both the PlayStation® and Nintendo® 64 systems. In addition, EA announces the development of a Game Boy® Color system version, which marks one of the first ventures in which Electronic Arts (EA) will directly publish and distribute a game for this platform. The upcoming fall release of WCW Mayhem on all three platforms stems from the exclusive long term partnership for interactive entertainment game titles between EA and the World Championship Wrestling Inc. (WCW), providers of power-packed family sports entertainment.

"It's been such an amazing and exciting experience to see how we have been able to advance what has been done to date within the wrestling game category," says Chuck Osieja, producer at Electronic Arts. "WCW Mayhem delivers the most innovative technology advancements and unique gameplay features ever attempted within the genre, so we are more than confident that this title will provide gamers and wrestling fans the ultimate interactive wrestling experience."
