Shacknews E6 2022: WrestleQuest gameplay interview

We dive into the beautiful pseudo sport of professional wrestling with the team behind the upcoming turn-based RPG WrestleQuest.


It shouldn't be much of a secret that the Shacknews staff has more than a few professional wrestling fans. That's why we were not only excited, but also curious by the idea of a turn-based RPG set inside the squared circle. We wanted to learn more about the upcoming WrestleQuest and that's why we were happy to invite Mega Cat Studios founder James Deighan and Head of Narrative Zack Manko to Shacknews E6.

Join our own TJ Denzer, as he asks in-depth questions about the creation of WrestleQuest. This includes wrangling together the various licenses, doing right by the pro wrestling fanbase, and creating a wildly creative wrestling game unlike any ever seen before. WrestleQuest was first unveiled back at March's ID@Xbox Showcase, combining the golden era of 80s wrestling with Paper Mario-style turn-based battles. We recently had a chance to go hands-on with the game back at PAX East and loved our time with it. Look for it to releasing later this year on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.

Shacknews E6 is on its final day. Check out more features like this one, along with more developer interviews, live music performances, and much more throughout the rest of this Friday. Also, be sure to catch up with anything you might have missed, including our indie showcase. Head over to the Shacknews Twitch channel to catch everything live. If you can't watch on Twitch, you can find our full slate of programming on demand from the Shacknews YouTube channel.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
