RetroMania Wrestling

The game is supposed to be the follow up to 1991's WrestleFest. Coming to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and the PC early 2020.

Iíve heard about this. Iíd like to get more confirmation on the roster. I know that Tommy Dreamer, Colt Cabana, and the bWo (blue world order) are in it.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling

That's interesting, is there a clause in his contract that allows this or is it far enough from his likeness that it doesn't matter?

I just rebought Firepro on PS4 because of the last sale with DLC (fire promoter) so that'll last me a while.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling

I'm so happy to see a game like this! I loved Wrestlefest, WWF Superstars and Mat Mania back in the day... hell, even the Nintendo Wrestling game was fun for what it was.

You can't pre-order for XB1 or PS4, unfortunately.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling

From FAQ

how will the grappling system work?

Auto grapple when you get close to your opponent

I want to support this but I hate not having control over when my wrestlers does his grapple. I guess I'll wait till closer to the time to check out more videos. Would be interesting if it gets the support needed to bring Create-A-Wrestler.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling

I never played WrestleFest, but from watching the video on their site this reminds me a lot of WWF Raw which I had for Genesis back in the day. Similar style graphics, sound effects, and controls seem the same.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling


It already looks like more fun than any WWE game under the 2K brand.

Re: RetroMania Wrestling

The graphics doesn't bug me as I have been playing Fire Pro Wrestling recently but I don't like the Auto Grapple feature as I would like to have some control of my moves. Also I find the Wrestlers roster lackluster.
