Retro game of the week: Pro Wrestling (NES)


Pro Wrestling was released back in 1986, as the first wrestling game on the Nintendo Entertainment System. I'm sure everyone who ever came across that console have fond memories of it. The game featured only six wrestlers; Fighter Haybusa, Star Man, Kin Corn Karn, The Amazon, Giant Panther, and, of course, King Slender. They were all noteworthy. Still, Star Man is the one you remember most vividly and the one you always wanted to play, more than anything. The two-player mode had more replay value than most other games, and the fact that it isn't available on the Virtual Console network is beyond me. I hope Nintendo will come to their senses soon and release it.

Which wrestler could bite the opponents in the head? He kicked the most ass.

The Amazon. The Piranha Bite was undoubtedly the coolest move. Great crunching sound fx too...

Yeah, he was badass. I'd like to see a remake of that game for the Wii.

They should definitely make a remake for the Wii. I can't wait to kick ass with Starman again. Especially, that damn Amazon!
