New pre-alpha footage has been shown of the upcoming Ultra Pro Wrestling game.
Hyperfocus Games is going all in on creating a new video game that takes the beloved AKI engine from the Nintendo 64 wrestling games and creates a new experience unique with original characters and several known professional wrestling legends.
A new pre-alpha gameplay trailer has been released, showing off many of the in-game models for the original characters and giving a good look at legends that are joining the fray as downloadable content.
Hal Haney has drawn up original characters, and he's also drawn the preview art for the legends joining the game.
