Who doesn’t love a good wrestling video game? With their Nintendo Switch launch coming up, we spoke to Dave Horn, the executive producer of Action Arcade Wrestling! The game has been a fan-favourite for several years on Steam and other major platforms, but getting a game on a Nintendo console was something of a goal for Dave. We speak all about AAW, what makes it different from other wrestling games, and perhaps most notably the tumultuous development process.
You might know AAW was originally branded as CHIKARA Action Arcade Wrestling, but the development process was thrown out the window when CHIKARA shut down. The AAW team had to delete and reset the entire roster – but fortunately, fans of the game came to the rescue using AAW’s own unique and robust creation suite! All this and more talking to Dave Horn of Action Arcade Wrestling.
Action Arcade Wrestling comes to Nintendo Switch on February 9th.
