Midway’s TNA iMPACT! game gets a Web site

TNA and WWE may be two completely separate wrestling entities, but they both happened to reveal the first screens and information about their respective videogames yesterday. THQ told us about WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009, and Midway did the same thing with the TNA game they’re developing, TNA iMPACT!.

Midway sent along a (really short) press release with two screenshots of the game; you can view them after the jump and below, respectively. There’s no word on whether they’re from the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version. Either way, the screens look good — and I dare say, better than SvR 2009. Eight more images, along with a trailer and the game’s official forums, are available at the newly launched Web site, www.tnagame.com.

I stopped watching wrestling when I was in high school for one reason or another, so I haven’t really been keeping up with the times. The last time I was really into wrestling, the WWE was still the WWF. Man, I miss the Rock ‘N’ Sock Connection… However, my colleague Gameboi is a big fan of wrestling, so he knows what he’s talking about when he says, “TNA is where the once great wrestlers go to die. Even I can’t watch it.” Hm. Perhaps the game will be better than the real thing, then…

You’ll be able to beat the crap out of your friends in TNA iMPACT! this summer on the PS3, 360, Wii, and PS2.
