Def Jam gets punchy on PSP

Electronic Arts has released new screens of Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover for PSP as it extends its hip-hop scrapping series to Sony's handheld.

The story of The Takeover actually takes place before the events of the first Def Jam game, Def Jam Vendetta, and so will reveal just how D-Mob came to rule New York City.

The game includes new moves and venues but most of the hip-hop superstar fighters have featured in the series before, such as Busta Rhymes, Lil' Kim, Ludacris, Method Man, Redman and Snoop Dogg.

The PSP version will allow players to go head-to-head with others using the handheld's Wi-Fi capabilities, and gamers will be able to create their own fighter and dress them in the latest branded streetwear.
