“We’re proud to announce the first Nintendo DS wrestling game for the US and European markets,” said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing, Majesco Entertainment. “Nacho Libre is the perfect movie to translate into a handheld experience and our game captures all of the humorous wrestling action from the film.”
Nacho Libre, opening in theaters on June 16, stars Jack Black as Ignacio (Nacho), a cook by day in a Mexican orphanage who moonlights as a Lucha Libre wrestler to raise money for the orphans in this comedy from the creators of “Napoleon Dynamite” and the writer of “The School of Rock.”
In Majesco’s Nacho Libre game, players can play as Nacho or more than 10 other luchadors, all with their own unique abilities. The game also features a range of over-the-top wrestling attacks, four play modes, themed Touch Screen mini-games, 4 player wireless matches and numerous arenas from the movie in which players can battle to be the ultimate Luchador.
Developed by Budcat Creations, Nacho Libre will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
