Pro Wrestling X: State of the Union

Pro Wrestling X: State of the Union

by Ryan SmithJuly 11, 2012

When development for Pro Wrestling X started in 2002, I was pretty excited. After 10 years though, I had pretty much forgotten all about this project. I stumbled across this YouTube video this morning, and the crazy part is that these guys are still working on it and seem to be just as dedicated now as they were then. You rarely find that much passion by game developers, especially for a niche market like pro wrestling.

Pro Wrestling X‘s aim is to bring back the fun and excitement of the classic wrestling games like WWE: No Mercy, WCW Revenge, and to bring you a game with a focus on gameplay rather than extra modes and unneeded features. The game will be released on the PC. To give a taste of what’s to come in the full game (whenever it’s finished), the team is releasing a smaller game called Pro Wrestling X: Uprising, which will feature only 1-on-1 matches and 8 characters. Basically a demo.

The game’s Lead Design, Eric Wishnowski gives his “State of the Union” video below!

Ryan Smith
At the age of 3, Ryan received an NES from a relative and the rest is history. Sneaking up past his bed time to play Ninja Gaiden or Super Mario Bros was a common practice for him, and often caught too. Wasting his youth away on the SNES or Genesis, slamming controllers, and wishing death upon his video game foes. Many a nights Ryan stayed awake to defeat that final boss. There was nothing more rewarding. As the PlayStation and N64 came around, his love for video games increased until it inevitably became one of his passions. Now days, much of his free time is consumed by playing on Xbox Live with friends. Here on The Game Fanatics as the Reviews Editor, Ryan gets to share his passion of videos games with all of you! There's nothing more rewarding than that. /win
