– THE FIRST ALL-FEMALE WRESTLING GAME FOR XBOX 360 –
Rumble Roses XX Will Feature New Moves, Tag Team Action And Online Play
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 17, 2005 – Konami Digital Entertainment - America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced it will release Rumble Roses XX in North America for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The follow-up to last year’s smash hit female wrestling video game, Rumble Roses XX will feature a full lineup of incredible looking wrestlers along with all-new moves, gameplay modes, tag team action and online play.
“We’re delivering the features that fans expect from a quality wrestling game,” said Matt Knoles, Product Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment - America. “With even better looking models, more gameplay modes, tag team action, and online play, Rumble Roses XX will be the only game on the market to deliver both beauty and brawn.”
Set to be the “best-looking” game for the new console, Rumble Roses XX features more than 20 playable characters, including all the popular ladies from the original Rumble Roses such as Reiko and Dixie. Additionally, just like in the original, each character’s “alternate” persona will be included, allowing for players to play the hero, or the heel. Modeled in revealing outfits, the look of the wrestlers in Rumble Roses XX will defy the imagination as the polygon count for each of these models has increased substantially from the original. Each wrestler will also have a variety of costume changes, new moves, different crowd reactions and attitudes depending on their persona.
New gameplay modes – bolstering a number of solo modes where players can pummel their way through the game’s many characters and unlock additional foes – turn up the heat on the action. Foremost is the new Tag Team option, which allows two women to team up to fight two other women. The Tag Team mode allows for special team combo moves, mistaken attacks and the drama of team breakups. A Battle Royal mode and an Elimination Match mode also increase the game’s depth and replay value. Additionally, Rumble Roses XX will include online play so competition from around the country can team up with one another or go toe-to-toe. No matter which mode, the number of moves at the players’ disposal has been expanded greatly, providing a more realistic wrestling experience.
The game will also feature many of the same tactics that made the original version a hit, including a wide variety of moves such as traditional suplexes, kicks and elbows. Additionally, each wrestler has specific attacks linked to their overt personalities and can also string together a number of moves to create formidable combinations. In keeping with the glitzy showcase nature of the game, the girls also have taunt moves to rile their opponents and to get the crowd excited. The individual fighting style chosen for the characters will influence each wrestler’s “good” or “bad” persona when players choose to fight dirty or fair. With the game’s Superstar system, the more popular a character becomes with the virtual audience, the greater the benefits the player will receive, giving her an advantage in the match.
