Lucha Libre is a competition that is deeply tied to Mexican culture. For this reason we believe that many will be interested to know that this type of entertainment will return to the world of video games, but with something very different from Heroes of the Ring, the AAA game that came to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
What happens is that Masked Republic, a company specialized in wrestling, announced that they will launch a new video game. The project code name is Project: Mask and seeks to be something different from other wrestling games like the aforementioned Heroes of the Ring o go WWE 2K. What happens is that it will be a game focused on history and which will explore the heritage of wrestling, Mexican culture and authentic wrestlers.
An important point is that Masked Republic is developing this project with Hyperkinetic, a Los Angeles, California, United States studio that collaborated on Sonic Mania Plus. It is also collaborating with Mexican initiatives such as BC Media Lab and Gamacon to promote this production with Mexican talent.
