Ok, I’ll admit. Wrestling games have been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was wee lad. I stopped having any interest in the
sport spectacle right around puberty, but I’ve always enjoyed the games. i have really fond memories of Fire Pro Wrestling on the SNES, both Wrestlemania Arcade games and Smackdown 2 on the PS1.
Smackdown vs Raw though has become an incredibly stale, boring game with yearly iterations that provide marginal upgrades. Which may be why THQ will be developing a new yearly series for fans of the WWE and its particular offering of â€œsports entertainmentâ€.
WWE All Stars will be introduced in 2011 and will, according to THQ core games boss Danny Bilson, be a less â€œsimmyâ€ game, intended for more casual players, who prefer over-the-top arcade action to the debatably simulator-esque Smackdown vs Raw.
WWE All Stars is in development for DS, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.Controls will be accessible, graphics stylised there will be an emphasis on the aforementioned over-the-top mayhem. The game’s due in the first-half of 2011.
Stylised is cool and all..but why the hell do those dudes look like they’re wearing flesh-coloured marine suits?
