From IGN PS2:

In an announcement made at Konami Gamers' Day press event today, it was revealed that the Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo or renowned grappling developer Yuke's would be teaming up to produce a unique wrestling title exclusively for the PlayStation 2. Made in conjunction with CG movie gurus, Polygon Magic VSL, WWX: Rumble Rose could definitely turn out to be one of the more unusual (and most likely popular) games this coming November.

"WWX is a powerhouse combination with some of the best wresting action found on any platform, sexy female models, audacious poses and bold moves - all delivered with state-of-the-art graphics for a visually stunning game," said Akari Uchida, producer, Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo.

"When Konami approached us with the concept, we could hardly wait to get started," said Yuke Taniguchi, president of Yuke's Entertainment. "We are excited to develop a new style of wrestling game - one that provides a high quality wrestling experience, but also introduces humor and a whole lot more sex appeal."

Though it is planned to be a graphics-intensive experience, Rumble Rose will also feature an interesting combat system that allows players to develop unique styles for their wrestlers. Players will be able to change the personalities of their wrestlers through their actions in the ring, which will then translate into changes in costume, attitude, and wrestling style options. Insults and taunts will prove a lot more important here than in your typical wrestling title too, and many of the maneuvers are said to leave opponents in, what we will call, "compromising positions".

At press time, only two different characters have been officially revealed: Dixie Clemets (country western cowgirl) and Reiko Hinomoto (classic Japanese female wrestler). Each one boasts a unique array of moves like the Dixie Buster, Double Moonsault, and the classic German Suplex, and their methods of pulling them off are quite "interesting."

Definitely more along the lines of games like Def Jam Vendetta or Backyard Wresting, this over-the-top grappler should definitely spark some conversation around the coffee cooler. Click on our media page below for a first look at the game's renders and check back with us again over the next few months for updated information and impressions.

It looks... well, certainly appealing in one manner. Of course, we all know how well XTreme Beach Volleyball turned out, now don't we?

The Blonde girl looks way too much like Doa's "Tina" lol.

If that's In game screenshots it looks amazingly unps2ish, which is good.

Erm, does that mean what I think it means?

And if it does, I don't wanna know any more about it.

See, it's funny, because the wrestling hold she has the girl in is a stretch plum, and you could also interpret it as a sly innuendo toward masturbation, as both of the girls are attractive...

Ah, screw it.
