AKI Pro Wrestling 64: Introduction & Origin
Yes, folks. IT'S FINALLY HERE! After over an ENTIRE YEAR OF WAITING, my very first special review is finally here!
AKI Pro Wrestling 64 is an episodic special review that covers all the wrestling games on the Nintendo 64 that were developed by AKI Corporation (now Syn Sophia, Inc.) and published by Asmik (in Japan) and THQ (in the U.S.). Some were based on World Championship Wrestling (WCW) (now defunct), some were based on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) (now World Wrestling Entertainment [WWE]), and some were based on various Puroresu (Japanese wrestling) promotions.
This series contains some of the greatest wrestling games of all time:
-Introduction (& Origin) - Virtual Pro Wrestling (1996) and WCW vs. The World (1997) for the PlayStation
-Episode 1: WCW vs. nWo: World Tour/Virtual Pro Wrestling 64(1997)
-Episode 2: WCW/nWo: Revenge (1998)
-Episode 3: WWF WrestleMania 2000 (1999)/Virtual Pro Wrestling 2(2000)
