THQ To Release WWE Wrestlefest this Tuesday

In news that I'm sure is only exciting to me, it seems there is another WWE game on its' way very soon. Like, this week. THQ plans to release WWE Wrestlefest, an arcade wrestling game featuring cartoonish versions of WWE Superstars. And possibly on a console near you.

Macho Man likes to watch.

You might remember Wrestlefest from its' original 1992 release in arcades. That game was a staple in my neck of the woods, often commanding crowds as large as those that gathered around Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat. That game featured 6-man battle royals, tag matches, as well as one-on-one matches. The roster was full of legends, such as KGB favorite Macho Man Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, and Jake The Snake.


The forthcoming version of WWE Wrestlefest will feature several of the original legends, as well as newer stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and John "Fruity Pebbles" Cena. For now, the game is only announced for iOS and mobile devices. However, several tweets from people inside THQ have pointed to Wrestlefest heading to XBLA and PSN. Expect an official announcement this Tuesday, when the mobile version becomes available.

Now if only they'd add Razor Ramon.
