Legends of Wrestling II will introduce several past greats from the British wrestling circuit. Yes, although you may not even remember a British wrestling circuit, the likes of Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks, Mick McManus and Kendo Nagasaki were all big names in the sport during the 1980s, and Acclaim has signed all four of them to duke it out with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant and Jerry "The King" Lawler in Legends of Wrestling II. Each character will be faithfully restored at Acclaim's Salt Lake Studios from archive ITV footage, and character intros, costumes and signature moves have all been recovered and built into the game, including Nagasaki's "Kamikaze Crash". Goodness me.

Legends of Wrestling II is due out this November on PS2, Cube and Xbox.
