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)...
My uneducated guess is that it's meant to stop postcount spamming, in conjunction with the inability to reply to yourself. Ghostbusters will find another publisher, and Doublefine has stated that Brutal Legend is safe as well.
