New 3D Professional Wrestling Game from Virtual Basement LLC
Read Time:5 Minute, 32 Second

Video games and wrestling have a long and storied relationship. Games like WWF Smackdown on the Playstation 1 are looked back with nostalgia as the gateway to a love in professional wrestling. My own personal re-connection with wrestling happened thanks to WWF Smackdown 2: Know Your Role. With each year’s strive for more graphical fidelity, something has been lost. The games are no longer a simple pick-up and play experience. There are many of us out there that yearn for a return to the simplicity of something from our youth. Something like maybe WWF No Mercy on the N64 or WWE Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain.

Virtual Basement LLC are a New England based video games company that have been making waves signing independent professional wrestlers. For what you may ask. Well for a new professional wrestling game.

I’ve been lucky enough to speak with the lead designer from the project Ashton Andersen over the past few weeks. I was able to get a behind the scenes look at some of the stuff they are working on and will have much more to share with you very soon. They have got some very interesting concepts and ideas for the mechanics of the game. The game will be a 3D based game. They will be using Unreal Engine 4 to develop this so expect an amazing looking game. We have a sneak peak at some preview art and in game 3D models for professional wrestler, Shaheem Ali

 



From the conversations I have had so far I have gathered that they have a love for games like WWE Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain, WWF No Mercy and WWE Allstars. They are very open to making this a wrestling game for fans of wrestling with many more details coming out very soon.

We don’t have many details right now but we have a list of the wrestlers who have signed contracts for their exclusive video game likeness to be used over the past few weeks.

First up, former WWE NXT Superstar Bull James announced via his twitter

This would open the floodgates with many more signed on as of now with more very special guests to be announced very soon

ROH’s Leo St. Giovanni

Virtual Basement have previously made games The Mean Greens – Plastic Warfare, Outlaws of Old West and Ark – Survival Evolved. The quality of these releases show that they have the talent to make this new wrestling project a reality. This is 100% a passion project for them and I got that feeling with every interaction we’ve had so far.

With the recent disaster of WWE 2K20, there is definitely a want and need from the wrestling and gaming community for an alternative 3D experience. We still haven’t heard anything about an AEW game so I’ll be watching this with a lot of interest as the details start to come forth.
