Interview: Lucha Libre AAA Heroes del Ring

There were tons of games on the floor of E3 2010. None of them quite stood out like the booth with the giant wrestling ring and masked luchadors flying around. Many Americans and Canadians know well the WWE, but Mexico and further south has a rich, colorful history of wrestling unique to that culture. Lucha Libre is highly technical and acrobatic wrestling. Kombo was able to speak with Guillermo Averbuji, who is the producer in charge of the Wii and PSP version of the first ever Lucha Libre video game, Lucha Libre AAA Heroes del Ring. Here is what he had to say about the game, the culture and how that is captured. Kombo: Can you explain some of the differences between Lucha Libre and the style of professional wrestling (like WWE) that American gamers might not notice? In essence, how is Heroes del Ring different from current wrestling game options? Guillermo Averbuj: The differences are many, not only on the aesthetic and cultural side, but also from an athletic point of view. First: The masks. This is a sacred tradition in Lucha Libre. A masked luchador wears his mask at all times; it’s like being a super hero with a secret identity that represents honor and pride. Sometimes masks (and persona) move from generation to generation, creating dynasties, so masks are big deal. El Santo, one of our most famous fighters ever, like a Hulk Hogan type of wrestler, was buried wearing his mask. There is a certain type of match (also found in the multiplayer modes in the game) called Hair vs. Mask (English translation). This exciting match features fighters who wager either their mask or their hair. Loser has his mask ripped off in the ring and exposes his true identity - when that happens that fighter cannot battle for seven years as that character.  Read More
