The ID@Xbox showcase yesterday definitely was something that shouldn’t have been missed (My bad, I slept on it, figuratively AND literally) and one of the highlights that caught my eye was Mega Cat Studios and Skybound Games? WrestleQuest. Almost everyone who?s enjoyed wrestling has entertained the notion of stepping into the ring themselves. In WrestleQuest you?re going to step into the shoes of one such hopeful, but their journey will be a bit more turn based and looking quite “Toyetic”.
The game will also have you crossing paths with actual wrestling legends such as “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and many more. WrestleQuest will debut Summer 2022 on Xbox platforms, Playstation platforms, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam
WrestleQuest — Announce Trailer:
Mega Cat Studios and Skybound Games today revealed WrestleQuest, a new RPG adventure, featuring a licensed roster of iconic wrestling legends. WrestleQuest is scheduled for worldwide release in Summer 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 gaming consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
In WrestleQuest, players assume the role of a young wrestling hopeful, on his quest to become one of the all-time greats while he powerbombs, slams, and suplexes his way to the top. Inspired by icons like the legendary “Macho Man” Randy Savage, our hero must immerse himself in the world of professional wrestling, which will not only test his athleticism but his will and conscience too.
“WrestleQuest captures the spirit and passion of wrestling, through the lens of an unforgettable RPG experience,” said James Deighan, Founder of Mega Cat Studios. “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 favorite wrestlers from the 80s, 90s and today.”
Throughout the game, players will experience classic turn-based RPG combat that mixes real-time action with tactical choices, as they wrestle through a richly detailed and fantastic storyline, starting out as a newcomer, before ascending the ranks and becoming the sport?s greatest star, with help from legendary wrestlers that span the ages. The pixel-art graphics and overall visual style perfectly represent the combined worlds of wrestling, toys, and action figures.
“Mega Cat Studios have an unbridled passion for wrestling and an incredibly ambitious team that reimagines retro-style entertainment in innovative ways,” said Ian Howe, co-CEO of Skybound Games. “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.”
Players will meet and interact with a host of legends as they progress through their quest, including “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and many more. With tons of side missions, bonus content, and much more, this is the ultimate main event that you won?t want to miss.
