'Fire Pro Wrestling' (XBLA) - Screens

by Rainier on June 15, 2011 @ 9:24 a.m. PDT

The Fire Pro Wrestling franchise is heralded by its fans for its 2D character sprites and vast customization possibilities, allowing gamers to create their own wrestlers and moves, but the XBLA will be in 3D with avatar support.

This is a wrestling game in which players choose from customizable characters to compete in various matches. Players punch, kick, and perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., grapples, overhead throws) to defeat “cartoony” opponents. Matches are highlighted by “dizzy star” effects, light bursts, and impact sounds as characters are slammed to the mat. Players may also initiate a variety of “taunts”; for example, female wrestlers can bend over and slap their buttocks. One wrestling move allows players to sit on opponents (cowboy/rodeo-style) and slap them on the posterior with a riding crop.
