MDickie has been making games on the PC and mobile for a long time, but there are still plenty of people who haven’t been exposed to his work. For that reason alone, Wrestling Empire is a game worth checking out. However, with a clear lack of wrestling games on the Nintendo Switch, it’s easily a must-own title on the console. Sporting its retro visuals, a ton of creation options, a beefy story mode and a huge roster of characters, Wrestling Empire is the best wrestling game on a Nintendo console in a decade.
In our exclusive Old School Gamer list, we detail the carnage and let you know why you’ll love it.
5: Accessible: The controls are the anthesis of retro. One button finishers make the gameplay fun and easy to jump right into.
4: Tons of Match Types: Essentially, whatever your sick mind can come up with, you can do in Wrestling Empire.
3: Tons of Characters: While there are no licensed superstars, you’ll recognize performers that span over 60 years of the industry.
2: Amazing Story Mode: From thoughts on unionizing, to refusing to put someone over, the Story mode of Wrestling Empire is for the “mark” in all of us.
1: Fun Multiplayer: As fun and immersive as the game is to play by yourself, it’s even better when humans control all the characters.
