Casey Collins, the Executive Vice President of Consumer Products for WWE revealed this morning at the WWE Global Business Partner Summit that The Rock will be on the cover of the upcoming WWE 2K ’14 video game.
Despite working only part time with WWE, the current WWE champion got the coveted spot on the cover of one of the most popular video games which is expected to be released in Fall 2013.
This will be the first game under the 2K Sports video game license after 2K won the rights from the bankrupt THQ.
CM Punk was on the official cover of WWE ’13 although several versions and limited editions of the game came out with different covers.
Other Wrestling Themed games
Among the most famous wrestling video games of all time, two of them deserve special mention: Saturday Night Slam Masters and WWF No Mercy.
Saturday Night Slam Masters was released in the year 1993 by Capcom, the famous Japanese video games company, which launched versions for Arcade, Super Nintendo, FM Towns and Mega Drive.
This game is characterized by containing more graphics details than its predecessors, in addition to having large-sized characters and striking colors. Also, this game stood out for its melodies with many guitar and drums sounds, as well as very well achieved sound effects, including a phenomenal audience cheering sound.
Moreover, this game stands out because it has general but also specific movements for each character, each of which can also throw objects and climb the ring poles to jump on top of their rival. Finally, it has two game modes: Single Match and Team Battle Royal, the last of which allows the simultaneous participation of four players.
On the other hand, WWF No Mercy was created by THQ in 2000 for Nintendo 64. It’s a WrestleMania sequel that includes a Create-a-Wrestler feature and allows the customization of more physical attributes, movements and even the creation of female characters, which was very difficult to perform on WrestleMania’s latest version. Finally, this was the first game that featured backstage fights.
Now, when it comes to casino wrestling themed slots games, Lucha Libre is a great online Mexican Wrestling based RTG game, so you’ll find lots of nachos, peppers, beers, chips and specific championship cups. This incredible game contains five reels, 25 pay lines, and Auto Play plus Speed Gaming options. Also, it allows you to play with two characters: “Guacamolio” and “Taco-Malo”, which count as wild symbols and appear exclusively on reel 3.
There are two symbols for scattering: Mask and Wrestling Ring. All symbols pay from left to right. However, the Wrestling Ring symbol pays either. Furthermore, 3 Wrestlings of these symbols start a bonus round named “Time To Rumble,” in which one chooses between 3 fighting movements by which it is possible to defeat your adversary. By the way, if you beat your adversary during this bonus round, you’ll win free spins (6 to 14 of them) with x2 multiplier.
Besides, you’ll love Lucha Libre’s “Mask of Fiery Doom” feature, according to which if a mask symbol appears on reels 1 and 2, along with three wrestlers on reel 3, you’ll gain an instant free spin. Minimum and maximum bets are $ 0.25 and $ 6.25, respectively. Finally, you will not find a better place to play “Lucha Libre” than Raging Bull Online Casino, where you will be able to deposit easily and quickly to play more than 200 casino games, and count with our 24/7 customer support service via phone and live chat.
