The Lucha Libre AAA Heroes del Ring wiki last edited by SaturdayNightSpecials on 04/09/14 11:36PM View full history

Overview

The game is based on a Mexican wrestling federation known as AAA (Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, "Assistance, Consulting, and Administration"). It features both English and Spanish audio commentary. Heroes Del Ring is billed by its creators as:

"The first ever lucha libre wrestling game released in North America and that it will allow gamers to partake in acrobatics, key moves, and over the edge action & gimmicks that will make this spectacle unique for all viewers."

The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the game were developed by a firm called Immersion Games Studio using Unreal Engine 3. Sabarasa Studios followed it up with Wii, DS, and PSP versions.

~ An Excerpt From The Official Press Release

The teaser of the first ever video game featuring Mexican wrestlers will be announced in the event Triplemania XVII this weekend. The new game, unlike others featuring wrestling, is directed for the first time at the Hispanic market. It successfully reflects the essence and feeling of the shows organized by the AAA in Mexico, with commentary in Spanish, the opportunity to choose the best known wrestlers and their masks, become involved in the throws, holds and locks and be completely involved in the fight, as well as connecting with the public.

This game is published by Slang, a company dedicated to promoting the creativity and innovation of Hispanic culture on world class platforms. The game is designed on Unreal Engine 3, one of the most powerful of new generation game consoles, such as XBOX 360 and PLAYSTATION 3, both created by Immersion Games Studio. It should be available commercially at the end of 2009 and, at a later date, versions created by Sabarasa Studio for Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP, will be launched.
