Hello all, I was surfing online & stumbled across something very interesting. It seems that konami & veterean wrestling game designer yukes have taken up a new project that you all might find worth a look. They are working on a new wrestling game for ps2 called WWX Rumble Rose. It's going to be the 1st ever all-female wrestling game. I didnt know where to post this either to the regular wrestling forum or here so i just picked here. From what I've seen of this game, it seems that its going to involve serious wrestling along with some T&A. The graphics'll be excellent because they're getting done by the same team that designed the fine ladies in Dead Or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. I would like to know all of your opinions on this announcement. I've
included the official press release below:

KONAMI jumps into the ring with WWX:Rumble Rose
1/11/2004 10:33:59 PM
WWX is the first-ever women's wrestling game and is being developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo in partnership with the acclaimed development studio, Yuke's Entertainment, and renowned CG movie specialists, Polygon Magic's VSL Team.

"WWX is a powerhouse combination with some of the best wresting action found on any platform, sexy female models, audacious poses and bold moves - all delivered with state-of-the-art graphics for a visually stunning game," said Akari Uchida, producer, Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo.

Players can choose from the sexiest roster of vixens to enter the ring, such as team leaders, Dixie Clemets and Reiko Hinomoto. With a specialty move named, "Dixie's Buster," and a unique, country western-style personality and flair, Clemets is bound to keep gamers busy for hours on end. Japanese wrestler, Hinomoto's specialty move is the "Double Moonsault" and her favorite moves are the dropkick and German suplex pin. Don't be intimidated lone gamers, she loves smart guys who wear glasses.

Much more than eye candy, WWX delivers sexy, yet explosive in-the-ring combat. Rather than focus on simple grappling and groping, WWX encourages players to experiment with unique combative moves to develop their own fighting style. The WWX combat system even features the ability for players to disgrace or humiliate their opponents through insults, taunting, locking them in a compromising position or by inflicting intensely aggressive moves.

"When Konami approached us with the concept, we could hardly wait to get started," said Yuke Taniguchi, president of Yuke's Entertainment. "We are excited to develop a new style of wrestling game - one that provides a high quality wrestling experience, but also introduces humor and a whole lot more sex appeal."

Unlike any other fighting game, players can change the wrestlers' personalities through gameplay by choosing to fight dirty or fair, resulting in a good or bad persona for the character. The personality changes manifest themselves through a change in costume, attitude and wrestling style. Naughty or nice, becoming a popular wrestler will earn benefits including expanded gameplay, additional skills and moves, and more revealing and flamboyant costumes.

Women's wrestling action heats up in November 2004. A playable version of the game will be on display at Konami's booth during E3 2004.

Seriously, with Yukes involved, there's no reason for it not to have the kind of diversity in moves that Smackdown has. Definitely worth a look if it ever does make it here.

LOL, its going to have as much to do with wrestling, as DOA Extream Beach Vollyball had to do with Vollyball.

It's going to be the 1st ever all-female wrestling game

*coughFireProQueen'sSpecialcough*

Anyways, this will probably wind up a rental at best.

The game has great potential in Japan, where the majority of the female wrestlers actually can wrestle. Here, it's basically Etreme Beach Volleyball with ropes. Even if they actually make it good, it's only got sleeper hit potential at the most. :-\

Actually I meant 1st all female wrestling game in america. Theres been a big amount of female wrestling games in japan, mostly on the super nintendo. I went to gamefaqs.com & it said it has a release date of nov 2004 in North America. The parts about the way your character changes whether you play dirty or fair reminds me of Star Wars KOTOR. I'll probably end up gettin it cuz my bro loves DOA XBV. If I dont enjoy the game I know he will.

EBV with ropes... that sounds like some odd bondage concept. :shifty:

Anyways, who knows, something like this might spark a greater interest in seeing women who can actually wrestle.

It might also be a solid wrestling game.

I'm not holding hopes for either, but I'm holding out the OPTION.
