It’s been 17 years since Def Jam entered the gaming industry with Vendetta and now it looks like another Def Jam game could be on the way.
A brand-new game from the record label was hinted at by the official Def Jam Twitter account.
Def Jam Recordings initially tweeted “The streets saying we need a new Def Jam game”, which was followed by “Once our twitter hits 1M, we have a special announcement for y’all” alongside the gaming emoji.
While details of Def Jam’s upcoming announcement are slim, it looks as if the record label is gearing up to announce a new game.
The Def Jam label isn’t new to the gaming world, having dropped Def Jam: Vendetta, Def Jam: Fight For New York and Def Jam: Icon back in the noughties. The Def Jam games combined hip-hop and wrestling and allowed gamers to fight as and against their favourite rappers including Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, Ludacris and more.
If a new Def Jam game is on the way, we can expect to see a number of appearances from more contemporary artists but the question is, who would you like to fight with or against?
