Taito’s “Champion Wrestler” Joins the Arcade Archives on PS4, Nintendo Switch

Publisher Hamster has announced that Champion Wrestler is now available on Nintendo Switch and PS4 as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in arcades by Taito in 1989, Champion Wrestler is a one or two player game that puts players in the boots of a professional wrestler. You can choose from eight different wrestlers, each with their own unique stats and special moves. Punch, kick, and body slam your way to fame, fortune, and of course, the babes championship!

Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste.

Arcade Archives Champion Wrestler is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop.
