We announced sometime ago that SouthPeak Interactive had acquired the rights to the TNA Wrestling license of video games. The company had plans of releasing TNA: Cross the Line for the PSP later this year; a DS game, titled TNA: Dual Slam, was also mentioned, though no release window had been given. SouthPeak recently released some new details about the game as well as some new screens which can be seen below.
It appears that two different TNA titles will not be produced. The DS and PSP handhelds will both be getting TNA: Cross the Line. That’s not that big of a deal, really, especially considering that both games will likely be pretty different from one another given the hardware specs. It’s a shame, though, that no word on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Wii installments has even been uttered by SouthPeak. The last TNA game was decent, but it desperately needed some major improvements, and one can’t help but feel that a release on a home console would have been good for the franchise.
The title is currently slated for release this winter, so TNA fans have something to look forward to this holiday season. Is it wise, though, to release the game solely for the DS and PSP? What will the fate of the TNA license be if these games don’t deliver? Is the TNA video game license destined to pale in comparison to the WWE video game license?
