REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - November 9, 2004 - Konami Digital Entertainment - America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that its highly anticipated wrestling game, Rumble Roses(tm) for the
PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system, has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The first and only all-women's wrestling game features the sexiest female models to ever grace the ring, jaw-dropping graphics and intense action - including the eagerly anticipated Mud Mode.
"Rumble Roses is going to blow gamers away, not only because it features the sexiest wrestlers in the ring, but also because it has the best wrestling action in any game," said Rob Goff, product manager at Konami Digital Entertainment - America. "While our in-game characters are stunning and full of attitude, we've made sure that this beauty is backed up by plenty of muscle, including an arsenal of bone-crushing moves and styles for each wrestler that will keep gamers coming back for more."
Providing an experience not found in any other wrestling game, the beautiful ladies of Rumble Roses can dish out the dirt in the much talked about and highly anticipated Mud Mode. Delivering realistic mud matches, players will literally see mud sliding off these sexy wrestlers in their revealing bikinis after each take down in the mud pit.
Much more than just eye candy, the vicious vixens of Rumble Roses pack a roster of deadly moves, including traditional suplexes, kicks, elbows, and special moves for each character. Rumble Roses' unique combat system allows for characters to taunt or even place their foes in compromising positions, resulting in super "humiliation" moves to put opponents down for the count.
Players can choose to fight dirty or fair, influencing each wrestler's "good" or "bad" persona. Changes in persona can unlock each character's alter ego, with totally new costumes, moves and personality, providing more than 20 ladies to grapple. With the game's Exhibition Mode, gamers can get right into the action with a match between one of the many wrestlers or choose the Story Mode and learn the background of the wrestler as she fights for the championship. The visually stunning Gallery Mode lets gamers preview their wrestlers before entering the ring, including a complete profile of the character.
Rumble Roses was developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo in partnership with acclaimed development studio, YUKE'S CO., LTD, and renowned CG movie specialist, Polygon Magic's VSL Team.
Rumble Roses is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and is available for the SRP of $39.99. For more information on the game, please visit:
