Lucha Fury was developed by Punchers Impact and published by Coktel. It was released June 22, 2011 for 800 MSP. A copy was provided by the publisher for review purposes.
Luchadors are somewhat of an enigma. Like the North American’s WWE they compete in major league wrestling mainly in Mexico and other South/Central American countries. However in Lucha Libre wrestlers conceal their identity behind a mask, making them in essence possibly anyone in the world. Lucha Fury plays on that culture, pitting four masked luchadors against insurmountable odds. The game is very Final Fight meets Nacho Libre with some amazing artwork and bright colors. It’s a beautiful setting that works really well with the game’s slapstick humor.
A few months back we brought you word and a trailer, that a new four player co-op brawler, by the name of Lucha Fury was on its way to the XBLA. The guys over at Punchers Impact have given us a new teaser trailer, allowing us to have a little insight from one of the henchmen in the game. As you can clearly see, life isn’t all glitz and glamour. Oh, they were also nice enough to toss us a few new screenshots, which you can check out after the break.
