For all you 90's kids out there who grew up on Super NES and Sega Genesis, you're in for a real treat.

Lil Wayne a.k.a. Weezy and 'Drizzy' Drake announced today that, in promotion of their upcoming joint tour across the United States, which is sponsored by nostalgic 90's video game company Capcom, they will fight against one another to the death, as characters in a new video game app available for both Android and iPhones, called DvsLW (Drake vs. Lil Wayne).

DvsLW is a tour-specific app that, as you'll undoubtedly notice, is styled after the iconic video game Street Fighter. The app was made by iam8bit, and Echo Park-based production company, in conjunction with Drake's company, October's Very Own, as well as Young Money Entertainment, and Capcom, of course.

Users will be able to pick Drizzy or Weezy and, during the "rap battle" that will certainly ensue, fans can "help their favorite rapper 'power up' and impact their performances in real time," according to Billboard. Players will "button mash" if if they were playing the latest game in the storied franchise, Ultra Street Fighter IV.

"We are both thrilled that our fans will get the unique opportunity to join us in this interactive experience," Drake and Lil Wayne said in a statement.

Download it now via Apple or Google app markets.

For diehard fans attending, you may want to consider purchasing a VIP package tour, which will provide you with Drake vs. Lil Wayne trading cars, beach towels, snapback hats, and tote bags.

Check out a trailer for the tour below:
