And here is the first one in the Legends of Wrestling series, unfortunately no real differences between the Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Gamecube version but as I mentioned before - I like the whole concept of the games and would love to see a reboot. There are a ton of (semi-) retired wrestlers, just imagine what a roster would be possible 😱 #legendsofwrestling #xbox #playstation2 #gamecube #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

You love sh*tty unlicensed wrestling games just as much as I do? Great, you should give WWC: World Wrestling Championship for the PlayStation 2 a try. Who would not want to enter the ring as one of the fantastic wrestlers like „Clown“, „Mr. Cash“ or „Tomy Gun“? And just look at this cover, how can you resist the urge to play this one? 🤡 #wwcworldwrestlingchampionship #playstation2 #wrestlinggames #gamecollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

Heavily inspired by @effetendo - today’s post is Power Move Pro Wrestling for the Sony PlayStation. The japanese version is a New Japan Pro-Wrestling game known as Toukon Retsuden. For a release in the US, new wrestlers without a license were created but the moveset is still identical. The game got positive reviews and is one of the better wrestling games for the console. #powermoveprowrestling #toukonretsuden #playstation #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

Everytime I look at this cover I just ask myself, what was the designer thinking and this was their best concept? 😂 Love or hate the „math book design“ of the Sega Master System Games, but Pro Wrestling features a Wrestler who is holding his own head. Plus the german translation on the back is absolutely hilarious and the layout is again terrible but at least the game is fun for a few rounds. 🤓 #prowrestling #segamastersystem #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

Unfortunately, this is not a picture of me (perhaps of @the_buff_gamer 🤔) but the cover of Fire Pro Wrestling 2nd Bout for the PC Engine. This game marks the second entry in this series that started in 1989. The easiest way to try this game might be the re-release for the Wii Virtual Console in 2008. I must admit that I do like these sexy HuCards 👀😄 #fireprowrestling #fireprowrestling2ndbout #pcengine #necturbografx16 #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

We had this game before for the SNES, this time it’s WWF RAW for the Sega Mega Drive. Always loved that game as a kid even if I never fully understood the controls 🙈 still like that artwork very much, even got it as a picture on my wall. #wwfraw #segamegadrive #segagenesis #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

This badass cover is one of my absolute favorites of all time, simple but super cool. This is Fire Pro Wrestling G for the Sony PlayStation. 2D Sprites, a huge CAW, standard wrestlingrings plus octagons and exploding cages, this game has it all. #fireprowrestlingg #sonyplaystation #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

I must admit I am not a big Manga fan, so without this game (it’s a whole series of games across many systems actually) I would have never known about Kinnikuman. In the US called Ultimate Muscle. So this game for the Nintendo GameCube is called Kinnikuman Nisei New Generation vs. Legend and surprise, surprise, it’s a manga style wrestling game with a cel-shading look that does look really amazing and plays very well, no wonder considering it’s made by AKI. Even if I do not like the character design at all, this game is kinda cool in its own way. #kinnikuman #kinnikumanniseinewgenerationvslegends #ultimatemuscle #gamecube #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollectiveeu #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollection

Even I sometimes wonder which developers made wrestling games. Capcom and Square did, but I often forget that even Rare made a wrestling game. WWF WrestleMania Challenge for the NES. Released in 1990, featuring 9 different wrestlers with unique movesets and some nice pixelart and music. For me personally it’s the best WWF game released for the console. #wwfwrestlemaniachallenge #nes #nintendoentertainmentsystem #famicom #wrestlinggames #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollector #retrocollection

Unfortunately, Showdown: Legends of Wrestling for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox was the final Legends of Wrestling game. Mixed reviews, serious glitches and the closure of the developers studio were the final nails in the coffin for this little series. A Gamecube version was also canceled during the development process. I really enjoyed the whole concept even if the games were not great. What a pity. #showdownlegendsofwrestling #legendsofwrestling #wrestlinggames #xbox #playstation2 #retrogames #gamecollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

After two long weeks, your favorite wrestling game collector (😜) is back and I know you’ve all been waiting for those beauties. Here is Super Fire Pro Wrestling X for the Super Famicom. Released in 1995, this game saw an updated version called X Premium in 96 which was the last Fire Pro Wrestling for the SFC and is considered the best for the system. A stunning roster of 80 wrestlers, great graphics and the typical fire-pro-gameplay - easily one of the best wrestling games ever made. #fireprowrestling #superfireprowrestlingx #wrestlinggames #superfamicom #sfc #snes #supernintendo #gamescollection #retrocollective #retrocollector #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection

Let’s be honest. Everybody was waiting to see that beautiful cover again. But this time twice as big. Here is WWF In Your House for the Sega Saturn. I hope you enjoy it 😄 #wwfinyourhouse #segasaturn #retrogames #wrestlinggames #retrocollective #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollection #retrocollector
