Hulk Hogan gets Kinect-ed

Wrestling-champ-turned-reality-TV-star to receive his very own motion-controlled Xbox 360 exclusive game.

Xbox 360 owners can brace for an outbreak of Hulkamania, as Majesco Entertainment today announced it will launch Hulk Hogan's Main Event for the Xbox 360 this fall. Described as a "performance-based wrestling game," Main Event lets players create their own wrestling persona and learn how to work a crowd under the Hulkster's tutelage.

Be sure to check out the performance-enhancing strategy guide.

The Kinect will be used to track players' movements as they attempt to emulate Hogan's signature poses or perform dozens of combos. After customizing their wrestler from appearance to entrance music, players will embark on a career that takes them from tearing up the backyard to headlining a card at a sold-out stadium. Much like Hogan, players won't always fight fair; the game will support a number of foreign objects, including chairs and ladders. Additionally, a Tournament mode will support tag-team action for two players.

Hulk Hogan's Main Event is being developed by Panic Button. The studio has a handful of Wii games to its credit, including the first-person fighting game Swords and the party game Lumberjacks. It has also worked on the Xbox 360 once before with the Majesco-published Attack of the Movies 3D.

I couldn't deal with a jacked-up man with the skin tone of a cooked hot dog yelling at me the whole time to take my vitamins and to say my prayers the whole time i'm playing the game.

i'd be embarrassed if i was an xbox-360 owner. i wonder why they even bother with stupid games like this...this is probably gonna be just as awful as Playstation Move Heroes.

I wonder if the author of this story was laughing the entire time he was writing this.

Hulk Hogan needs to grow up and take that dang do-rag off his head. He got punked by a 19 year old kid who was railing his wife in his house. What a loser.

I heard to beat the game you have to suffer a tragic death. Just like the real life of a wrestler. and not just by playing the game :)

People still like wrestling? If they wanna make this game authentic, it should be about teaching you how to act terribly and fake to get punched when there was clearly no contact.

Drop kick player 2 in the face bonus points for blood splatter distance!! I'm not one for this motion controller stuff but the 8 year old in me that used to watch hogan every week really wants a go at this lol

I heard the worse part of this game is you have to "Job" to Hogan in every match making it impossible to win.. Steroids and lying to a judge and jury about it sold seperately.

Best lay down a mattress for playing this one- Atomic Leg Drop + Kinect = cracked pelvis.

i believe since hogan *is* marketable, it was an easy win. But this is ultimately an epic fail. What about us high flyers?? no 450's. Shooting star presses, or phoenix splashes?? Great in concept, poor in thought, Worse in marketability. Where's wrestle kingdom for the US??

I'm a little disappointed with my kinect so far, after playing around with it the first month I find it hard to come up with any reason to use it. I'm not giving up on it yet, but I'm getting a little ansty. I am hoping against hope that some time in the near future I hear about a game that gets me excited, after reading about this game that day is not today.

OK, so it's just like any other WWE game, but instead of people who are actually relevant, they invited a steroid-fueled dirt bag to star in their game.

Hogan teaching me to wrestle is like my 2 year old nephew teaching me to.....well wrestle.....How about lance storm or the Hitman Bret Hart....

Well look at it like this if it takes as much wrestling ability to bet this game as it did for Hogan & Cena to become stars then all u will have to do is turn the game on

@ KimCheeWarriorX well i think most of the motion controlled games (aside from shooters) require you to make a fool of yourself to some degree! have you even played wario ware smooth moves?? TOTALLY, clown city! wrestling on the kinect though.....this will definatly be something to see!

Just like every facet of Hulk Hogan these days, this should be hilarious, if nothing else.
