THQ has revealed that WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 is to be released on PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS.

PlayStation 3 owners were left wanting when THQ canned the PS3 version of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2007, but THQ has confirmed that the 2008 edition is most definitely coming to PS3.

Last year's effort was released on Xbox 360, PS2 and PSP and these platforms are joined by the PS3, Wii and DS for the 2008 release.

"We are extremely pleased with the success of the SmackDown vs. Raw franchise and its continued growth to a widespread audience, particularly in our European markets," said Bob Aniello, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, THQ. "With the addition of fresh, innovative game play on the Wii, the tremendous capabilities of the PlayStation 3 system and unique handheld experiences for Nintendo DS and wireless devices, gamers can now truly live the life of a WWE Superstar and choose from numerous ways to play."

New features for the 2008 edition include the addition of eight "Superstar Fighting Styles" that will differentiate wrestlers from one another. Also new is a "Struggle Submission System" that will give players further control of grapples allowing adjustments to each hold's pressure.

There's also good news for ECW fans, with the inclusion of ECW arenas, weapons and superstars all confirmed. The game will also feature new rosters, more environmental hotspots, a combined Season and General Manager mode and, wait for it... touch screen control for the DS version.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 will be released in the autumn.
