Ultimate Warrior comes to LoW: Showdown

Wrestling fans around the world will finally have their long-held dream answered, as Ultimate Warrior, one of the most popular, beloved wrestlers in the history of professional wrestling, is returning to the ring. Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. today announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Ultimate Warrior to appear in Legends of Wrestling: SHOWDOWN, which is currently under development with Acclaim Studios Austin and scheduled for release in April 2004 across the next-generation gaming platforms. Underscoring the significance of this announcement to the wrestling and gaming communities, Acclaim has launched a special Legends of Wrestling: SHOWDOWN Web site (www.legendsshowdown.com) featuring exclusive, never-before-seen images of Ultimate Warrior, one of 70+ wrestlers who will appear in the game. Fans can visit the site and register to become part of "The Legends Legion," a free membership that qualifies them to receive ongoing email updates highlighting the latest gameplay and talent announcements. The SHOWDOWN site will also provide visitors with exclusive product information and free downloadable desktop wallpaper. "Legends of Wrestling: SHOWDOWN is the ultimate wrestling super card," said David Knies, Brand Director for Acclaim. "We revamped the Legends of Wrestling brand and created a ground-breaking game that establishes a new benchmark for future wrestling titles. To demonstrate our commitment to this game, we enlisted a new development team, secured a dream roster of wrestlers, developed new gameplay features and incorporated a realistic art style. SHOWDOWN is guaranteed to amaze and entertain generations of wrestling fans and gamers alike." "Hello Warriors. I have been waiting for the perfect time to make my return to professional wrestling," added Ultimate Warrior. "Amidst the rumours and mistruths spread by others, my time to return is now and it's with Acclaim. I'm thrilled to be working with Acclaim again on the new Legends of Wrestling: SHOWDOWN video game and I will take this opportunity to settle all unfinished business in the ring. Always Believe!" Returning to the world of interactive entertainment after a seven-year hiatus, Ultimate Warrior worked directly with Acclaim Studios Austin to create a virtual character that is as authentic as the man himself, including his signature moves, unique look and mannerisms. A professional wrestler since 1985, Ultimate Warrior is recognized predominately for his talent inside the ring; he is a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and a two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion. Legends of WrestlingTM: SHOWDOWN will be available in April 2004 across the next-generation systems at suggested retail process to be determined.
