THQ announced a new WWE brand – Legends of Wrestlemania – as part of its financial release yesterday, to ship for 360 and PS3 in March 2009.

As the name suggests, the game will feature older and retired wrestlers. The company said the game will capitalise on the pay-per-view Wrestlemania event every March.

“We have generated significant year-over-year growth in key global territories with WWE-licensed videogames, including tremendous success with the WWE SmackDown vs. Raw franchise,” said Peter Matiss, vice president, global brand management, THQ.

“The development capabilities afforded by next generation hardware, combined with our established history and deep understanding of fighting videogames, allow us to leverage the strength of the WWE brand to further extend our leadership in the fighting videogame genre and bring this new property to market.”
