5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis Announced For PS4

By MunchMagic1986,
Serious Parody Ltd, based in Dundee, Scotland (famous for some huge titles over the years), are looking to add to the city's rich videogame history with their latest title 5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis, the follow up to their PS3 title 5 Star Wrestling. Self-described as the "Pro Evolution Soccer of pro wrestling games", the studio is doing something that is very unknown in videogames; they have also launched their own pro wrestling circuit featuring legends of WWE and TNA. The game will also have its own tour starting in January.

Details on the game are scarce at this time with the studio only revealing that they "will look to focus on fun yet strategic gameplay". To kick off both the game and the upcoming tour, the studio has signed former WWE Champion, and future Hall of Famer, Rey Mysterio in a videogame and multi-match deal. It is unknown whether he will be sticking with his signature "619" finishing move, the area code of his home city of San Diego, or swapping to "01382" instead. The former definitely rolls off the tongue a bit better.

Serious Parody Founder & CEO, Dan Hinkles, had this to say:

We here at Serious Parody have huge plans for 5 Star Wrestling and signing the absolute greatest high flyer of all time, Rey Mysterio, is not only an incredible step in the right direction for our company but on a personal level, as a life long wrestling fan, it’s a dream come true to work with one of the very best wrestlers in history. Rey Mysterio could sign with the WWE at anytime but he has chosen to work with us instead; it’s truly surreal and hopefully a sign of big things to comeThey have released a video with a very excited Rey Mysterio announcing his involvement and his upcoming match with former TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles on the ReGenesis tour. Now that is a match that some fans would have liked to see but were unable to due to them being with different companies.


5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis is set to launch on Playstation 4 in Early 2016. The 5 Star Wrestling: ReGenesis Tour will be kicking off in the UK on January 13th, 2016 so we expect the game to release close to that time.
