Hopefully I'm not posting fake made-up lies this time...

The twist this time is that instead of (legally distinct) simulacra of your favorite wrestlers, you'll be able to take to the mat with your Avatar. If you make a really big Avatar, do you have an advantage?
Okay, so it's not exactly the Fire Pro HD that I'd hoped for, but I'd still buy this in a heartbeat - though there's no word on a North American release yet.
In other Xbox wrestling news, Action Arcade Wrestling is now available for download from the Indie Games section for 80 points ($1). Having played the free trial version, it may be overpriced.

No matter how much people praise this game, I just don't like it that much.
I really wish Microsoft wouldn't have rejected Ketsui Kizunajigokutachi as an XBLA game, because it turns out the disc version is region-locked (unlike some of the other Japan-only vertical shooters)...
With the price drop to coincide with the PS3 release inevitable I'm not too worried about paying too much. I also like how the Sony will taking a larger than normal loss because of their stubborn insistence to make another all in one media center.
