An update to the previous Japanese-only wrestling game. This seems to have more features and the presentation is even nicer. Once again, there’s something about the movement of the game – from the breathing of the characters to the bounciness of the ring, that makes it feel so much more alive than other wrestling games.
The wrestler introductions are also rather impressive, with great music (there’s great music throughout the whole game) and each wrestler having extra clothing for their walk to the ring. It helps to make a single match feel like an event.
There are plenty of moves and you can “shuffle” moves from one wrestler onto another – still, this would have really benefited from a character creator.
Remake or remaster?
It’s an interesting novelty in itself, but other than a translation, doesn’t need anything else.
