WWE news: 'No Mercy' trends after AEW announce new game similar to WWF classic

AEW have announced a new games division

All Elite Wrestling have announced the launch of AEW Games in a bid to 'reimagine the gaming world'. 

The new venture will initially deliver THREE new gaming options to fans including two mobile titles and their highly anticipated console game, which is being developed by YUKE’S.

AEW Casino: Double or Nothing is anticipated to launch this winter, and AEW Elite GM is expected to arrive later in 2021.

Both of those will be mobile games. 

The big news though, was the announcement that their console game will be developed by the director of the legendary wrestling title WWF No Mercy. 

Hideyuki Iwashita was behind the classic Nintendo 64 game released 20 years ago - and it's one many fans consider to be the greatest of all time. 

Soon after Kenny Omega announced the project in a Livestream on Tuesday, 'No Mercy' began trending on Twitter with delighted fans discussing the news. 

Two mobile games have been announced

Speaking during the event, Omega said: "Every once in a while, a revolutionary company comes along and changes everything. AEW is doing that today.

"When I first signed with AEW, I asked Tony Khan to let me help assemble the best gaming team on the planet, to make the best wrestling games ever.

"With masterminds like Geta and the incredible team at YUKE'S, we are well on the path to deliver a fresh, vastly superior gaming experience that our fans deserve."

Tony Khan, CEO and GM of AEW added:

"It’s amazing to think that less than two years ago, we sent shockwaves through the professional wrestling industry with the launch of AEW and now we are rolling out our new revolutionary games. 

"We make a point to listen to our fans, and we know that a rejuvenated and immersive gaming experience is critical to the overall wrestling experience. 

Omega announced the games on Tuesday

"It’s going to be cool to see our fans enjoying a next-gen console wrestling game that actually implements their feedback. This is just the beginning of a new era of gaming."

We can't wait for the arrival of AEW's new console game. TAKE MY MONEY, NOW!
