Cube gets WrestleMania XIX exclusive
Shut Your Mouth!
THQ has announced the GameCube's next exclusive WWE title, WrestleMania XIX, due out in October 2003. The firm's latest wrestling game (probably designed by Yuke's but we're not 100 per cent certain of that) boasts some enhancements over X8 that seem like lessons learnt from SmackDown: Shut Your Mouth; namely a new story mode with a "sweet revenge" angle, in which players must restore their favourite superstar's status, a new grappling engine, location-specific damage and presentation/visuals to rival the PS2 title. Of course we can also expect more than 40 WWE wrestlers from the 2003 roster (including Rey Mysterio, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan and the Rock).
