This isn’t the first we’ve heard about a new Def Jam game either, as Ice T previously championed a new game in the series for next-generation consoles, specifically a reboot of Def Jam: Fight for NY.
The Def Jam series gained significant popularity in the 2000s, plucking much influence from the hip-hop community with playable characters including Ludcaris, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, Ice T, and more. The original game was a professional wrestling title by trade, while Fight for NY took things into a more street-brawler direction.
If there is a new game in the works, then it’s long overdue.
