There are very few posts that are a true pleasure to write, this is definitely one of them for me. When "Legends of Wrestlemania" was announced for all the next gen game systems, the idea alone was something I'd been waiting on for YEARS. Finally, a legends game, that brings back the magic, and leaves out the current crap that ruins wrestling. Today, direct from E3, we get the very first look at the game, and wow, even though we only confirm 3 superstars on the game, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan are a great way to start! Not only that, but the graphics look great, the old school red white and blue ring ropes are there, the re-creation of classic moments will be there, this should be a wrestling game fan's dream. The story mode apparently shows classic footage in story mode of matches that you are about to re-create, and the game will feature 40-45 stars from the 80's and 90's. Check out the trailer below, and the moment the blue cage was shown around the ring, I was sold, just so awesome. So far so good! I was afraid, because this game could easily be ruined, and I"m so glad the first thing we saw in this game was not some shit like John Cena FU'ing Andre...that alone would ruin the game from the get go. Just imagine the Wrestlemania matches that can be recreated. Hell, with wrestlers from that era, the replay value here could be HUGE. And I'm hoping if it's a success, we could see sequels, unless this game is just so great it does the job on its own. I cannot wait to see more info. on this, people are already wondering about downloadable content etc., tons of possibilities here. The trailer has sold me, and the info that the game features managers and classic arenas is just over the top, enjoy the trailer, old school wrestling fans cannot help but love this I'm sure hearing Gorilla Monsoon's voice in the trailer is cool enough, and IGN.com confirms that legendary commentators will be included, which is awesome, but not sure how that will work. Enjoy this awesome trailer:
**Edit** Upon further investigation, if you look at the shirts on the fans in some of these pics, I think it's safe to assume that the shirts confirm more wrestlers on the game, as I doubt they'd have shirts on for guys that aren't in the game....so add Bret Hart, the Legion of Doom, Old School Undertaker, and Ric Flair to the game. We need more pics soon!
