In the absence of a new wrestling game from the WWE 2K folks (2K Battlegrounds notwithstanding), other developers are stepping up to deliver their own take on the bruisers of the squared circle. The latest of these is Action Arcade Wrestling for PS4. from developer VICO Game Studio.
An independently developed wrestling game that boasts a roster of fictional wrestlers in lieu of the sorts of household names from the WWE and AEW rosters, Action Arcade Wrestling is a cel-shaded, 3D wrasslin’ effort that lets players powerslam, hip toss and… lightning bolt their foes in the face with reckless abandon.
It’s certainly different from the usual, po-faced status quo of wrestling games anyhow.
Already out on PC, you can catch the Steam listing for Action Arcade Wrestling below.
