A New WWE Game

The nets leading wrestling games site: has received words that Studio Gigante are developing a new WWE game. The studio previously worked on the Xbox exclusive beat-em-up 'Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus'. Dr Tom Pritchard from WWE visited the Studio on 15th February to supervise a motion-capture session. Regarding which, Tom commented: 'Doing motion capture for a video game is a pretty cool gig. I had the privilege of working with some great people in Los Angeles at the House of Moves studio. Ohio Valley Wrestling developmental talents Mike Bucci (Nova), Aron Stevens and John Hennigan suited up to duplicate some very tricky and intricate moves. I was there as official “supervisor,” which basically means I would suggest or request various things throughout the day. 'It looks like THQ will be coming out with the new game by early next year. Until then, there’s a lot of motion capture to be done. There are at least five more sessions to do. The days usually go from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 'The House of Moves crew and its facility are first-class. THQ producer Nick Wlodyka and Studio Gigante’s Mike Vinikour and Richard Ho made sure the shoot ran smooth and are great people to work with.' He went on to add 'Nick took us out for Korean BBQ on Wednesday night, and we closed the place down.The Los Angeles trip was full of long days but was well worth it. I’m anxious to see the game when it’s finished. The guys even added some extras and moves that weren’t on the list. I’m sure they came from watching Danny Davis tapes, as well. That’s the great thing about OVW. The array of tapes and material available to talent is incredible.' As Smackdown 6 and reportedly Wresltemania XX are already well in production, all signs point to the new game being released on Xbox, with a release date pointing to early 2005. I will indevour to find out more on this exciting new game in coming weeks, so stay tuned for the latest wrestling games news as it breaks, only at!
