Developed by Panic Button LLC, Hulk Hogan’s Main Event is the first performance-based wrestling game on Kinect for Xbox 360 that lets players train with mentor Hulk Hogan as they build their own wrestling personalities and learn the art of showmanship to win over the crowd.

“Hulk Hogan is much more than a wrestling star; he’s a sports entertainment icon with a huge personality, a massive following on Spike’s IMPACT WRESTLING, and immediate recognition across generations of fans,” said Jesse Sutton, CEO Majesco Entertainment. “Partnering with the Hulkster for Hulk Hogan’s Main Event is a dream come true and we’re looking forward to releasing a no holds barred motion-based experience that offers a full suite of over-the-top moves.”

In Hulk Hogan’s Main Event, players will learn the ropes from the man himself as Hulk Hogan schools them on delivering the best show for the crowd by emulating famous Hulk poses and performing more than 30 punishing combos. The Kinect sensor tracks players’ every move; the more dynamic the motion, the more high impact the wrestler’s performance is.

About Hulk Hogan
From the moment he first stepped into a wrestling ring, Hulk Hogan changed the face of sports-entertainment forever. With his 24-inch pythons and unrivaled charisma that sparked the “Hulkamania” phenomenon, Hogan helped turn wrestling into must-see theater and took the industry to heights never before imagined. During his heyday, Hogan’s popularity with fans bordered on fanaticism, and, even today, he is one of the most recognizable people in the world. A 12-time World Champion in the ring, Hogan was dominant through the 1980s and 1990s, and he enjoyed a career pinnacle later in the ‘90s, as he led the controversial New World Order (nWo) in its attempt to take over WCW. A 2005 inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Hulk Hogan is one of the greatest superstars to ever lace up boots, and his impact on sports-entertainment is second to none. Hulk Hogan made an epic return to the world of professional wrestling when he joined Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA) in January of 2010. TNA is the #1 wrestling company in the world, and their weekly show, IMPACT WRESTLING, on Spike TV is an especially strong performer with young men.

Revolutionary gameplay innovations make FIFA 12 deeper and more engaging. All-new Precision Dribbling creates a higher fidelity of touch on the ball for better control in tight spaces, more time to make decisions on attack, and more control over the pace of the game. Defending has been re-designed to make it as skilful and meaningful as real-world football with all-new Tactical Defending, where positioning and intercepting passes are as important as tackling. Tactics and timing are crucial.

CPU players have been infused with Pro Player Intelligence, a self-awareness that enables them to behave and make decisions based on their own skills and tendencies, and gives them the aptitude to understand the strengths and weaknesses of teammates in every situation.
