Today’s news of an Xbox Kinect-exclusive wrestling game featuring Hulk Hogan is tempered somewhat by the recent passing of Randy Macho Man Savage, but in a way Majesco’s timing for unveiling the game is a great tribute to the man once pegged as both Hulk Hogan’s friend and foe.
Hulk Hogan’s Main Event will be the first performance-based wrestling game on Kinect for Xbox 360 that lets players train with mentor Hulk Hogan as they build their own wrestling personalities and learn the art of showmanship to win over the crowd.
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.
Kinect owners will be able to perform in nine different venues, including the backyard brawl, local gym and giant stadium in front of a massive audience. Tournament Mode will support two-player tag-team action so players can take turns delivering extreme moves. And yes, players will be able to wield a variety of objects including metal chairs and ladders.
“Partnering with the Hulkster for Hulk Hogan’s Main Event is a dream come true,” said Jesse Sutton, CEO Majesco Entertainment, “and we’re looking forward to releasing a no holds barred motion-based experience that offers a full suite of over-the-top moves.”
Hulk Hogan’s Main Event is expected to launch on the Xbox Kinect this fall. Hulk Hogan will be making an appearance at E3 one week from today, on Tuesday June 7, so we hope to bring you more information from the Hulkster himself from the E3 show floor.
