Written by Robert Workman

Who misses WWF Wrestlefest? That classic Technos arcade game brings back lots of memories, and it’s been ages since we’ve seen a game like it on the market. But believe it or not, Retrosoft Studios is about to make that dream a reality for Nintendo Switch owners.

The developer announced today that it would bring RetroMania Wrestling to Nintendo’s platform in Q1 2020. It’ll bring retro-style wrestling to the system, with a number of superstars, as pictured above. You can get a glimpse of what gameplay it has to offer in the video below.

Here’s a general overview of what the game will have to offer:

RetroMania Wrestling is the spiritual successor to the classic arcade game Wrestlefest that was released in 1991 by Technos of Japan.

RetroMania Wrestling will be a “pick up and play” arcade wrestling game with beautiful 2D sprites, incredible backgrounds and fast-paced arcade style game play.

  • 12 – 16 Unique, distinct playable wrestlers at launch (adding more post launch via DLC)
  • 2-8 player local multiplayer (Online TBD)
  • Several match types, including One-on-One matches, Tag Team matches, and the Battle Royal
  • Ring entrances with entrance music
  • Multiple entrance attires for each wrestler
  • Strategic gameplay that is easy to pick up and play
  • Beautiful 2D pixel art animated sprites with over 700 frames of animation and animated backgrounds
  • Crowd chants that react to the action on screen
  • More features still to be added!

The game should be a big hit for fans. We’re definitely looking forward to it.
