SNK Corporation announced Big Bang Pro Wrestling is now available for Switch, a surprise release as part of their ongoing NEO GEO re-releases.
While Big Bang Pro Wrestling is now available for Switch via the eShop, a price point is set at $7.99. Big Bang Pro Wrestling was originally released back on November 23, 2000 for the NEO GEO Pocket Color. The game featured many wrestlers that were based on actual WWE professional wrestlers.
Big Bang Pro Wrestling is one of the few games for the system that has a working English language option. It’s also rarer and harder to get than most other NEO GEO games, making it quite valuable – so this is a welcome surprise for fans who haven’t been able to play it to this day.
Here’s a new trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the game:
It’s about to pop off! Muscle-bound wrestlers take the stage for a bombastic all-out brawl! Easy controls allow you to pull off sick and devastating special moves from the push of a button!
- 10 fighters to choose from including fledging newbies, masked wrestlers, and hulking heavyweights! The ring is calling you!
- Each wrestler comes with their own personalized Finishing Move. Fulfill the proper conditions and let it rip to win the fight!
- Change up the rules with exciting modes like Coffin Death Match where your goal is to toss your opponent into a coffin. Or, try to steal away the reward in Reward Death Match to really stick it to your opponent!
*The instruction manual featured within the game is from the original NEOGEO Pocket Color version. Therefore, the control explanations may differ from those on Nintendo Switch.
