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.
