Nacho Libre – NDS – Preview

E3 2006 First Look Preview

Majesco gave us an early look at their title based on the
upcoming movie from Paramount Pictures, Nacho Libre. Starring Jack Black, Nacho
Libre is about a Mexican priest (name: Ignacio – nickname: Nacho) who stumbles
on an easy way to make money for his orphanage: he moonlights as a lucha libre
wrestler. 

The brief video presentation ran on DS hardware and was
based on preliminary content that may or may not make it into the finished
product. They showed two polygonal characters fighting in the ring, performing
comedic actions, and trying their best to be the champ. 

Majesco stressed that the title will focus on the exciting,
action-oriented combat between wrestlers. They want the game to include more
than just the average wrestling content. This isn’t intended to be a serious
title with a deep storyline and character-specific theme songs. Nacho Libre
will be a much more humorous title, with hilarious moves and other elements
inspired by the film. 

Due for release alongside the DVD in November, Nacho Libre
should have what it takes to satisfy your DS wrestling / comedy / movie
craving. Expect to see the first official screens from the game in the coming
months.
