WrestleQuest Is A Turn-Based Wrestling RPG That Suplexes Onto Switch This Summer

Mega Cat Studios and Skybound Games have revealed WrestleQuest, a brand new RPG for the Nintendo Switch. And, with a title like that, your imagination is not fooling you. This is an RPG that combines the genre with the wrestling world, and it looks like a Royal Rumble.

Coming out this summer, WrestleQuest sees you attempt to become one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. As well as your character being inspired by famous wrestlers of the ’80s and ’90s, many of these iconic names will also feature in the game.

To find out more, here are the details from the press release:

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.

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.

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.

We’ve seen wrestling combine with other video game genres before – just look to the fabulous Guacamelee!, mixing Lucha libre with Metroidvania – and we’ve even seen Mario enter the ring in the RPG world in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. But it looks like the turn-based combat mixed with real-time action will fully embrace the wrestling style, which we’re all for.

The unique retro pixel style makes a full nelson slam, too. Not only is WrestleQuest wearing its retro RPG influence on its sleeve, but it’s capitalising on our nostalgia for the merchandise craze of the time by taking inspiration from toys and action figures. Admit it, you’ve still got some tucked away in your loft somewhere! And you can’t deny that the developers have nailed it – just take a look:

WrestleQuest doesn’t have a specific release date yet, but you’ll be able to sit ringside this summer when it comes to Switch. In the meantime, keep an eye on the game’s website and these pages for more details.
