WWE WrestleFest Heading To XBLA Later This Year

Plus we have a lot of details for you!

THQ have confirmed that WWE WrestleFest will be arriving on XBLA at some point this year. They promise the title will recreate the "classic arcade experience" providing players "with a notable roster of current WWE Superstars and popular WWE Legends". Gameplay modes are, as expected, varied and all encompassing. There's something for all WWE fans:

[WWE WrestleFest] will explore arcade-style WWE action across a variety of match types, including Royal Rumble, Tag Team, Gauntlet and Steel Cage, while competing in a number of renowned arenas like Raw, SmackDown, WrestleMania and Saturday Night’s Main Event. The Road to WrestleMania progression-style mode will encourage players to select a WWE Superstar or WWE Legend and compete in a series of challenges to win five different WWE Championships.When you dive into the host of game modes available, you'll be able to take on the signature moves of the following wrestlers at launch:

- John Cena
- The Rock
- Randy Orton
- Rey Mysterio
- “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
- Undertaker
- Jake “The Snake” Roberts
- “Macho Man” Randy Savage

Although THQ can't pin down a more specific release date for us, they were very forthcoming with DLC details, confirming there would be additional content to follow. They even went as far to provide an extensive list of the future downloads which is pretty unusual!

WWE WrestleFest will also update the gameplay experience following launch with the release of 30 additional WWE Superstars and WWE Legends, as well as new arenas, through an extensive downloadable content program. Items currently scheduled for future release include; WWE Superstars CM Punk, Triple H and Sheamus, WWE Legends Shawn Michaels and Big Boss Man [and] the classic Survivor Series arena.We'll of course keep you updated when we know (even) more about the title. How's it sounding so far?

Wasn't a Fire Pro game announced for XBLA ages ago? Because I'm pretty sure I would kill someone for that.

Is this supposed to be based on the 90's arcade game of the same name?

Like the sound of this. Cannot get into a full retail wrestling game anymore, but an arcade one may be right for me. Awesome idea

So is this coming out instead of WWE Brawl or are we getting both?

From what I seen WWE Brawl looked like a mortal kombat style game with weird bizarre powers, either way I will still be picking up some WWE acrade action

Wow that better not be the entire roster. Even for a arcade title that is small. Also, why on earth is Rey on the list? That guy is no legend and ha been out of action for a LONG TIME. Put Kane on the list instead. At least he is cool looking.

Wait, I don't get it. Am I missing something? To me it sounds like WWE All-Stars, except you only get 8 characters and have to pay for the other 30 via DLC.
