Skybound Games and Mega Cat Studios have come together to serve up a new RPG adventure titled WrestleQuest.
Featuring legends like ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, Andre the Giant, Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T and Jeff Jarrett, WrestleQuest will be released this Summer on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
In the game, you’ll take control of a young wrestling hopeful as they embark on a mission to become one of the all-time greats of the business. Taking the wrestling industry and placing it in the realm of a roleplaying game, WrestleQuest promises to be an utterly unique experience as turn-based RPG combat takes centre-stage in the world of spandex and superstars.
In a press release to announce the game, Mega Cat Studios Founder James Deighan enthused:
“WrestleQuest captures the spirit and passion of wrestling, through the lens of an unforgettable RPG experience. Many of the team at Mega Cat grew up watching wrestling and it holds an undeniable nostalgic place for us. This game is a celebration of that world, complete with special fully licensed appearances by some of our favourite wrestlers from the ’80s, ’90s and today.”
Skybound Games co-CEO Ian Howe added:
“Mega Cat Studios have an unbridled passion for wrestling and an incredibly ambitious team that reimagines retro-style entertainment in innovate ways. Their level of enthusiasm, creativity and talent makes them a perfect partner for Skybound Games and we can’t wait for players to discover WrestleQuest this Summer.”
As well as the legends listed above, this press release also promises plenty of side missions and bonus content. It’s also worth noting that the art for WrestleQuest shows what looks to be the Road Warriors and Koko B. Ware.
With WrestleQuest officially announced during today’s Xbox Showcase, a first trailer and several in-game shots have also been released.
Oooh Yeah! Go Beyond the Ropes with our Upcoming Wrestling RPG game, WrestleQuest!
