NCS Product Synopsis
Update: July 20, 2006
«©NCSX» The laser-like lights, the guttural roar of the crowd, and the massive video screen mounted near the wrestling ring conspire to electrify the atmosphere of Wrestle Kingdom as muscle bound meatheads strut on stage. Once inside the arena, recognizable faces from All Japan Pro Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and Pro Wrestling NOAH perform trademark moves and poses from their respective repertoires. Although the majority of wrestlers don't crack a smile or have any semblance of a sense of humor during their antics, a few do clown for the crowd and play it up to energize the audience. Choose from nearly 50 Japanese wrestlers as follows:

NJPW: Chono Masahiro, Tanahashi Hiroshi, Nakanishi Manabu, Fujinami Tatsumi, Kanemoto Kohji, Minoru, Inoue Wataru, Jado, Masked Devilock, Antonio Inoki, Tiger Mask, Gedo, Nishimura Osamu, Jushin Thunder Liger, Nagata Yuji, Tenzan Hiroyoshi, and Nakamura Shinsuke.

AJPW: Arashi, Muto Keiji, Kojima Satoshi, Kazu Hayashi, Taiyo Kea, Jamal, and Great Muta.

NOAH: Misawa Mitsuharu, Akiyama Jun, Taue Akira, Rikioh Takeshi, Ogawa Yoshinari, Kobashi Kenta, Muhammad Yone, Marufuji Naomichi, Kenta, Kanemaru Yoshinobu, Sugiura Takashi, and Morishima Takeshi.

Greats/Freelance: Hashimoto Shinya, Takayama Yoshihiro, Sasaki Kensuki, Fujita Kazuyuki, Tenryu Genichiro, Chosyu Riki, Murakami Kazunari, Shibata Katsuyori, Kawada Toshiaki.

The amount of moves in the game is impressive and wrestlers kick, clothesline, shoulder drop, leg lock, smash, spin, twirl, and perform other dazzling attacks and set-up moves in fluid motion. The controls are responsive and a versatile counter system keeps the action interesting. Countering also helps to foil the cheesy do-it-again-and-again wrestling tactics of cheap players. To ramp up the excitement level, the crowd reacts wildly and roars in approval as the smacking action heats up.

We received a small allocation of a bonus Wrestle Kingdom DVD where wrestlers Keiji Muto, Masahiro Chobo, and Kensuke Sasaki sit down and enjoy a spirited conversion. They also play the PS2 version of Wrestle Kingdom to see who has the most mojo. The wrestlers smile, laugh, and have a good time in a casual setting instead of hamming it up in the harsh glare of the wrestling ring. We'll include the DVD with early preorders. This item is no longer available for new orders.
