WrestleQuest is a retro-style RPG with real ringside legends – Destructoid

Not as dark as Super Fire Pro’s story mode

During today’s Xbox Indie Showcase, publisher Skybound Games and indie team Mega Cat revealed Fight Quest a fun new title that will blend the 16-bit RPG adventures of yesteryear with some of pro wrestling’s most legendary performers in the ring.

Developed by Pittsburgh-based indie band Mega Cat Studios, Fight Quest will put players in the spandex singlet of a budding young wrestler, as they embark on their dream of becoming the biggest superstar the company has ever known. As they navigate their way through the terrifying behind-the-scenes politics of a pro-wrestling locker room, our hero will find help and inspiration from a roster of licensed legends, including ‘Macho Man’. Randy Savage, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Jeff Jarrett, Andre the Giant, The Road Warriors, and Diamond Dallas Page (who I’m guessing will be on hand to break your back).

Fight Quest will combine the narrative adventure of old-school RPGs with turn-based in-ring action as the player makes a name for himself in the glory days of sports entertainment. In keeping with its old-school themes, WrestleQuest is rendered in cool pixel visuals, reminiscent of the glorious 16-bit era. Mega Cat founder James Deighan says the team grew up loving wrestling and hopes Fight Quest will capture the wild and colorful days of wrestling and video games.

It’s a really fun concept, and having an array of licensed stars in the game will really help put the title on the map. If you don’t feel the current trend of wrestling sims, then maybe Fight Quest will encourage you to step back into the ring – in an entirely different way – when it rolls back the curtain later this summer on PlayStation, PC, Xbox and Nintendo Switch platforms.
