Konami Announces Lucha Libre Wrestling Game

Ah, “lucha libre,” if television has not lied to us then it’s the high-flying style of professional wrestling. Inside the nation’s boarders, we haven’t really gotten to view this skeptical. Luckily Konami is hoping to tap into the fast-paced action of lucha libre and bring it into the gaming world with Heroes of the Ring.

Luche Libre AAA Heroes of the Ring will feature the roster from the popular Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion promotion, as well as a robust create-a-wrestler tool. Unlike a standard WWE-style “squared circle,” AAA utilizes a six-sided ring. Outside of that, the standard rules are the same – you can win bouts by pinfall or submission.

One alternate match type that’s hugely popular in lucha libre is “Hair vs. Mask” bouts. Losing your hair or mask is seen as a huge blow to a Mexican wrestler’s honor, and often signifies the end of a career. Not only is this match type available in career mode, but you can also put your created character’s hair, mask, and integrity on the line during online multiplayer. If done right, this could be a novel feature not seen before in a wrestling game.
