King of Colosseum announced
Publisher Spike announced today a new 3D wrestling game for PlayStation 2, titled King of Colosseum One. The game features licensed wrestlers and promotions and will spread those licenses across multiple expansion discs. This will in turn allow fans to play their favorite wrestlers.
"King of Colosseum Red will arrive in September with All Japan Pro-Wrestling, New Japan Pro-Wrestling, and Pancrase stars, followed by King of Colosseum Green in November with Pro Wrestling NOAH and ZERO-ONE. Spike hopes to release more discs in the future, including famous stars of the past and lesser-known independent promotions. The plan is to include around 250 wrestlers, both licensed and original. The game's create-a-wrestler feature is to include more than 1,500 different outfits, 2,200 maneuvers including taunts and feints, and 150 pieces of entrance music, both licensed and original."
