WWE(TM) Wrestling Game Brings New Life to the Ring With Refined Online Play and Added Realism

CALABASAS HILLS, Calif., July 6, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- THQ Inc. (Nasdaq: THQI) and JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (Nasdaq: JAKK) today announced the development of the newest World Wrestling Entertainment(R) (NYSE: WWE) licensed video game, WWE SmackDown!(TM) Vs. RAW(R) 2006 for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, scheduled for release globally in the fall of 2005.

"WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW 2006 showcases all of the excitement and energy of the WWE," said Peter Dille, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. "The WWE is one of the premier franchises in the industry and this title is primed to deliver the most intense wrestling gameplay along with true-to-life graphics, resulting in the deepest and most realistic wrestling experience ever."

"WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW 2006 combines online gaming elements and new features, allowing gamers to have more control over Superstar energy levels throughout the game play in order to deliver the ultimate wrestling experience," said Nelo Lucich, vice president of interactive, JAKKS Pacific.
