Wrestling / Simulation game

Super Wrestle Angels is a all female professional wrestling simulation game by Great and published by Imagineer. The first playing mode can be described as a 'professional wrestling group management mode', which is the original feature of this Super Famicom version (see the info section for more information about the Wrestler Angels series). There, the player takes the role of a woman wrestling group manager, picks a team and schedules practices, fights, entertainment and helps his cute wrestlers to elevate their professional careers. The other modes are more oriented towards actual fighting, and gets the player to pick female wrestlers and organize versus wrestling matches. However, Super Wrestle Angels is based around a popular Japanese wrestling card game, and because of this, all the matches are round based and opponents pick-up cards to decide of their next move. Each card has a value and is stamped with a Japanese Kanji, and these elements greatly influence the outcome of every single round. A good knowledge of Japanese is therefore required to enjoy this game, and this not only to figure out the title screen and in-game menus, but also to progress through the rest of the game.

Wrestle Angels is based on a popular japanese action professional wrestling card video game released in 1992 by GREAT and Hiroshima development section (aka PLUM). As far as I know, the series was first released for the NEC PC-98 Japanese computer, and no less than seven titles seem to have been released for home computers: Wresler Angels (1992), Wresler Angels 2 (1992), Wresler Angels 3 (1993), Wresler Angels Special, Wresler Angels V1, Wresler Angels V2, Wresler Angels V3. The wrestling team management was only introduced in the third episode of the series, and was greatly improved in the Super Famicom version. Also, as a side note, the wrestlers' swimming suits could, apparently, be ripped apart during death matches in the first two games - this feature was entirely removed from the third title, and all the episodes that followed had a much softer content (except for Wresler Angels Special, which was the first Adult Only game of the series). As far as I know, only three console versions of the game exist : Super Wrestle Angels (Super Famicom, 1994), Wrestle Angels: Double Impact (PC Engine CDRom, 1995) and Wrestler Angles Survivor (Playstation 2, 2006).

Beware! Despite a rather appealing cover art, this game doesn't contain any wrestling action whatsoever. Passed this first frustration, the game will eventually reveal itself and bring some interesting moments. Well, do not expect anything amazing here - despite the long list of female wrestlers available, the game's developers used a simple palette trick to always display the same sprites, but with different hair and swimming suit colors. I only wished they had spent a little bit more time on this. In short, this game can be 'fun' if you understand Japanese, and if you have enough free time on your hands to figure out the unusual gameplay mechanics. But I wouldn't recommend it.
