Rumble Roses massive costume upgrade
The original Rumble Roses had two costumes (four counting color variants) per character. Not that great. As regular readers know, I’ve been keeping tabs on the upcoming Xbox 360 version and had thought we were looking at maybe four to eight (if they did color swaps again) this time out.
To my surprise, there are going to be many more, including the ability to create your own character. By looking over recent videos, each character looks to have at least four more in addition to their character personality specific set of four. You can customize said outfits, and also adjust the wrestler’s body attributes. Yes, you can make the gals more top heavy, but I really like how you can make them more toned and muscular. A perfect compliment to a great outfit.
My favorite screenshot is the one above. Japanese vs. US schoolgirls. Nice.
My big concern is how over-the-top the sexuality in the game is, even more so than the original. It’s going to be hard to find play time in the house that’s for sure.
