WWE: Brawl steps out of the ring and into the streets


5:30 PM on 07.10.2011



WWE games, such as their most recent WWE All-Stars, are the type of game that probably come to mind when you think of the wrestling franchise. The corporate brain behind this old entertainment past-time is trying something new, removing the ring, the audience and the realistic style, with their newest venture. WWE Brawl will feature cartoony characters set in destructible environments, and seems to take its cues from more traditional fighting games with things like super powers and finishing combos.

As the name of the game implies, the type of combat will be brawler style fighting. I didn't see a single ladder or folded chair in the preview and I can't say I am sad about that.  I have never picked up a wrestling game before, but I would be willing to give this one a chance, which is the point.  By changing the look and feel of the game, the franchise heads are hoping to entice players who normally wouldn't give a WWE game the time of day.  It's still too soon to say for sure but hopefully this new spin on an old style will prove a to be a good one. Right now WWE Brawl has an expected release window of some time in 2012.
