We haven't done any wrestling games, and for those of us who aren't fans of UWC or whatever those fellas are calling themselves these days, or for those of us who aren't necessarily from a country that broadcasts or takes any interest in the wrestling shows broadcast in America, licensed games are a bit of an issue. Not so with King of the Monsters.


I like the King of Monsters idea, but I would also love it if we did a Firepro Wrestling month. Iterations of the game can be had for the GBA or the PS2, and there are tons of imports for all sorts of systems.

it's monsters wrestling over cities. Much like Godzilla movies. I've played it before, and I think it's okay, but I don't love it. I never thought the controls were that great. And plus, it doesn't actually have Godzilla characters. (King Ghidra FTW!) Just basically knockoffs. That's why I suggested Godzilla Melee instead. But I guess more people are into King Of The Monsters since it is more retro and overlooked.

Exactly, and it was also the main SNK wrestler on Neo Geo. I'm not very good at the home ports, but I've read they're garbage anyway.

Still, didn't stop me from buying both of them on the SNES.
