The video game is partly turn-based RPG combat and tactical decisions to wrestle all the way to the top as the player attempts to become one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. That means climbing the ranks with help from a number of licensed professional wrestlers, all with pixel-art graphics. Other professional wrestlers included in WrestleQuest include Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and more.
"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, as part of the same announcement. "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."
