We followed the launch of Action Arcade Wrestling back in 2019 when it first came to PC via Steam. Its arcade-style gameplay means to give wrestling fans and gamers exactly what they’ve been missing in video games. This according to its executive producer, Dave Horn. Its wacky design intentionally aims to provide simple enjoyable fun in the form of pro wrestling.
Now, you may have noticed this game launched under a different name back then. Social media’s #SpeakingOut movement struck the wrestling world exposing a rather tragic side to the sport. Due to the circumstances, AAW dropped the CHIKARA brand and became simply Action Arcade Wrestling.
Those curious about the upcoming launch can check out our PC review. In it, we discuss its simplistic and easy to pick arcade gameplay. In addition, we cover game modes, match types, and visual presentation.
