Recent Articles: WWE WrestleFest
WWE WrestleFest was originally released for iOS devices back in February with the promise of a future release on the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Arcade. Nine months later, it looks like THQ is finally ready to bring the remade arcade game to consoles.
The release date news comes courtesy of an updated Xbox.com profile for the game. The page doesn’t give us any idea how much WWE WrestleFest will cost, but we know when it’ll be released: December 19, 2012. So in exactly five weeks we’ll be able to suplex and slam our way through the 90s arcade classic, which now features a whole passel of current WWE wrestlers as well.
Sony hasn’t made an announcement concerning the PSN version of the game, but a mid-December launch to match the XBLA version seems likely.
THQ has added WWE WrestleFest to the iTunes App Store today in Lite (free), iPod Touch/iPhone ($2.99), and iPad ($3.99) versions. If you’re still iOS-less, the game will also be available for Android devices, the PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade later this year.
If WWE WrestleFest sounds familiar, that’s because it’s based on the classic arcade game WWF WrestleFest. However, instead of a straight conversion, THQ has updated WrestleFest to include current WWE wrestlers such as The Undertaker, John Cena, and Randy Orton. They’ll fight it out with the legends from the original game including “The Macho Man” Randy Savage, Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
If you’d prefer a different set of WWE wrestlers to create the ultimate tag team, THQ plans to add 30 wrestlers to WWE WrestleFest thanks to the magic of downloadable content. CM Punk, Triple H, Sheamus, Shawn Michaels, The Big Boss Man, and many more will be available to download soon.
