Ice-T is Campaigning For A “Def Jam: Fight For NY” Remake
You may have many questions after reading the title. Questions like: What is Def Jam Fight For NY? Is it not the WWE wrestling game that has Snoop Dog in? Ice-T wants to revive a PlayStation 2-era fighter. Continue reading to blow your mind.
Def Jam Fight For NY was the first game in a series of fighting games that combines hip-hop and fighting games. It was released in the early 2000s. The previous Def Jam game was focused on wrestling. Fight For NY adds variety to the game.
Do you think you could play fighting games without your eyes closed? SightlessSenshi is a blind player who uses sound alone to play fighting games.
Do you want to kickbox like Ludacris? Might you also consider learning martial arts with Lil Kim? You might also like streetfighting with Busta Rhymes. Well, Def Jam: Fight For NY had you covered. The Def Jam record label was at the height of its popularity at the time, which is why the game did so well. The game featured nearly 70 artists who were all signed under the Def Jam label.
A PSP port Def jam Fight For NY: Takeover was also available. It did well. The sequel Def Jam: Icon was released in late 2009. However, the influence of the original was diminishing. T.I. is now the main act with 29 artists. Henry Rollins was not a suplexing artist.
We are left wondering what 64-year-old Mr. IceT means when he says that a new Def Jam: Fight For NY reboot “would be an enormous hit all over again.” Is he referring to a reboot that would see the original cast force Flavor Flav, a 62-year-old, to fight in the motion picture booth? Or is he looking for a game with Def Jam’s current artists?
Justin Bieber might do mixed martial arts alongside Rhianna. Or maybe Kanye West would do capoeira along with L.L. Cool J. Wait, perhaps Ice-T is onto something.
