Less wrestling more music in Def Jam: Icon

Electronic Arts sent over this new trailer of Def Jam: Icon. The series begun as a hip hop wrestling game, but now it’s sort of like a music/rhythm fighting game. Environmental effects occur in time with the background and some are traps that can be used against an opponent. Also there is a whole new fighting system where you can deal extra damage if you’re punching to the beat. I’m kind of curious how this is going to work out, it’s either going to be revolutionary or awful. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t demo gameplay action, instead it focuses on the story.
