WWE WrestleMania XIX E3 2003 Preshow Report

Yukes' upcoming GameCube wrestling game will be on display at E3.


THQ will have the next WWE wrestling game for the GameCube on hand at this year's E3. WWE WrestleMania XIX will feature an updated roster of WWE wrestling superstars, including Hulk Hogan, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Rey Mysterio, and Steve Austin.

The new game will feature a number of enhancements, including more-detailed character models for each wrestling superstar that will actually support location-based damage; you'll be able to wear down your opponents by using powerful maneuvers that target specific parts of your opponents' bodies. The improved character models will also be available as hundreds of parts in WrestleMania XIX's enhanced create-a-wrestler mode, which will let you design your own custom wrestler's appearance, clothing, and repertoire of wrestling techniques. The new game will also feature an improved grapple system that will feature grapples of varying strengths, as well as a system of counters and reversals that you'll be able to use to turn the tables on your opponents.

WrestleMania XIX will feature numerous gameplay modes, including a lengthy, 30-mission story mode, though the game will also feature a brand-new "sweet revenge" mode, as well as a comprehensive tutorial and other gameplay modes to boot. WrestleMania XIX will be released later this year for the GameCube.
