MDickie’s N64-style wrestling game series has finally made its way to the Nintendo Switch with the debut of Wrestling Empire. For the past 20 years, MDickie has been developing indie wrestling games primarily on PC and mobile devices. That notably includes Wrestling Revolution and its sequel Wrestling Revolution 3D. Now, with Wrestling Empire launching this week, the franchise is back with its first game ever on a Nintendo console.
Wrestling Empire has a low-budget feel to it with its simplistic graphics and gameplay, but that’s oddly just a part of its charm. MDickie’s previous wrestling games have been successful because they’re really fun to play, from designing matches as a booker to competing in the ring with custom-made characters. The retro look adds to the fun and there’s just something about the unique style that makes these games really addictive.
From the Nintendo listing for Wrestling Empire:
Recalling the genre’s 64-bit heyday, this is wrestling that puts the fun first – filling the ring with as many wrestlers as you can handle and letting them loose with freestyle animation where anything could happen at any moment. Design matches before your very eyes with the intuitive setup process, and tag in up to 4 controllers at ANY time for old school multiplayer!
Or create your own star and embark on a career to encounter up to 350 opponents across 10 different rosters in an endless schedule of possibilities. Make the right moves backstage as well as in the ring to fight for your worth and retire with a career worth remembering. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you can even save your changes to each character to make the world your own and never get bored of wrestling again!
The game is now being sold digitally by Nintendo, but if you want to try it first, you can download a free demo. You can find out more at the official website and you can watch the trailer for Wrestling Empire below.
