Get ready Hulkamaniacs. Get ready Kinect owners. Coming this fall the two worlds will collide as the Hulkster gets you off your couch, and into the action in the world’s first Kinect based wrestling game. I’m lacing up my boots and putting on my lucha libre mask as we speak.
“Listen up, people! You will feel the power of Hulkamania when you step into this game,” said Hulk Hogan. “Whether you are taking the damage or selling the pain, this game will let you unleash your inner wrestler as you hype up the crowd while putting the hurt on anyone that stands in your way!”
The game is still being perfected, but looks to let you create your own future wrestling star, and get trained by the Hulk himself. Not that you need any training of course. We all know how to do the Hulk poses by now. If not, we don’t even know where you have been the last 25 years.
In Hulk Hogan’s Main Event, players will learn the ropes from the man himself as Hulk Hogan schools them on delivering the best show for the crowd by emulating famous Hulk poses and performing more than 30 punishing combos. The Kinect sensor tracks players’ every move; the more dynamic the motion, the more high impact the wrestler’s performance is. Players will create their own unique wrestler personality through a robust create-a-wrestler feature including many choices for face, hair, tattoos, outfit, ethnicity, body type, and entrance music. Perform in nine different venues including the backyard brawl, local gym and giant stadium in front of a massive audience. Enter tournament mode for two player tag team and take turns delivering extreme moves. Best of all, players can wield a variety of damaging objects including metal chairs and ladders to deliver bone-jarring hits to their opponents.
About Hulk Hogan
From the moment he first stepped into a wrestling ring, Hulk Hogan changed the face of sports entertainment forever. With his 24-inch pythons and unrivaled charisma that sparked the “Hulkamania” phenomenon, Hogan helped turn wrestling into must-see theater and took the industry to heights never before imagined. During his heyday, Hogan’s popularity with fans bordered on fanaticism, and, even today, he is one of the most recognizable people in the world. A 12-time World Champion in the ring, Hogan was dominant through the 1980s and 1990s, and he enjoyed a career pinnacle later in the ‘90s, as he led the controversial New World Order (nWo) in its attempt to take over WCW. A 2005 inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Hulk Hogan is one of the greatest superstars to ever lace up boots, and his impact on sports-entertainment is second to none. Hulk Hogan made an epic return to the world of professional wrestling when he joined Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA) in January of 2010. TNA is the #1 wrestling company in the world, and their weekly show, IMPACT WRESTLING, on Spike TV is an especially strong performer with young men.
Personally, I am just imagining myself laying a nasty leg drop on someone. Right after the big boot to the face of course!
