A book project telling the story of wrestling game development around the world, and cataloging every wrestling game ever made!

Over 300 games across two dozen machines, pachinko machines in the smokiest parlors of Osaka, that handheld Tiger Electronics game you got for your birthday that you hate and love at the same time, every game was played on original hardware and explored. Cancelled games unearthed, a legend who turned the genre on its head and development stories shared, this is the complete journey into the world of professional wrestling video games!

From the late 70s until present day, the match up of pixels and polygons have been many, and like a good wrestling match, the twists and turns must are just as plenty. Step into the ring and feel the megabits!
