THQ signs with Pride

Exclusive fighting game deal penned

Source - Core Magazine

THQ has signed itself up to a five-year exclusive deal to develop and publish games based on the 'Pride' Fighting Tournament. From next year we can expect to see a series of these games propagate across THQ's list of supported consoles, which includes the PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox. The first game based on the franchise is called simply, "Pride", and is due out on the PS2 some time in the second half of 2002 from WWF Raw developer Anchor. After the success of the WWF titles (particularly the Smackdown series), THQ will be hoping its own brand encourages sales of these games. If gamers can expect the same level of high quality fighting titles, they stand a good chance of succeeding. "WWF Smackdown!: Just Bring It", the company's flagship wrestling product, is due out on November 23rd along with a number of other impressive PS2 titles due in the run up to the festive season.
