SNK Corporation has announced that Big Bang Pro Wrestling is available to download today for the Nintendo Switch. The game originally launched for the NEOGEO Pocket Color console, twenty years ago.

In Big Bang Pro Wrestling, muscle-bound wrestlers take the stage for a bombastic all-out brawl. The easy controls allow you to pull off sick and devastating special moves from the push of a button. The game offers ten fighters to choose from, including fledging newbies, masked wrestlers, and hulking heavyweights. Each wrestler comes with their own personalised Finishing Move.

Players will have to fulfill the proper conditions and let it rip to win the fight. Change up the rules with modes like Coffin Death Match where your goal is to toss your opponent into a coffin. Or, try to steal away the reward in Reward Death Match to really stick it to your opponent.

The Legacy of Big Bang Pro Wrestling

Big Bang Pro Wrestling has built a strong audience on the NEOGEO Pocket Color. Twenty years after it’s initial release, the game is still being praised for it’s simplistic yet compelling action. Furthermore, the game calls upon high prices for the original cartridge, due to the fact it’s one of the few NEOGEO Pocket Color games from Japan to have a working English option.

The instruction manual featured within the Nintendo Switch game replicates the original NEOGEO Pocket Color version. Therefore, the control explanations may differ from those on the Nintendo Switch. Local “VS MATCH” is possible, but online functions are disabled.

A new trailer for the Nintendo Switch release can be found below. Big Bang Pro Wrestling is available today to download on the Nintendo Switch for £7.19 GBP / €7,99 EUR. Are you eager to get some retro grappling action on your Nintendo Switch? Let us know in the comments section below!
