March 6, 2007 - Today Electronic Arts, in partnership with Def Jam Interactive, announced that Def Jam: Icon has shipped to stores nationwide. Icon mixes music with classic brawl gameplay in what EA is calling a "hop lifestyle experience."
The Building with Bass fighting mechanic allows players to use music to their advantage and put the drop on opponents. The game's environments interact with the music and create opportunities for unique attacks. Icon's soundtrack features Big Boi, Lil Jon, Ludacris, and Young Jeezy, to name a few.
