The new match type on this years WWE SmackDown game, will be The Parking Lot Brawl. This will be the only new match type for this year.

Also, THQ confirmed the following superstars for the game:
John Cena, Randy Orton, Booker T, Ric Flair, Batista, Triple H, Chris Jericho, Rico, and Charlie Haas.

Lawler, JR and Bischoff are also confrimed and expected to be more interactive than before

Finally, THQ touched on some of the more presentational aspects of Smackdown! vs. RAW and revealed that for the first time in the series’ history, the game will receive all-new music for the menu screens and in-game wrestling matches. What makes this musical enhancement even more interesting, though, is the fact that it will boast licensed tracks from established industry stars. Who these bands or individual singers will be, however, have not yet be revealed.

Another new presentational tidbit that’s sure to please fans is the fact thay all the transition screens from Smackdown! and RAW television programming (ie: the graphics used to illustrate championship matches, the ‘tale of tape’ versus screens, and similar pre and post-match visuals) has been included as well, and the championship belts can finally be used as a weapon during matches. Even better, is that in an effort to add even more realism, Yuke’s has implanted a new blur filter effect for submission moves to illustrate the pain or grogginess associated with the pain.
