Chikara appears to be remaking the No Mercy game engine

For most wrestling video gamers, no games have still topped the playability of Wrestlemania 2000 and WWF No Mercy, the final two games Aki produced for the Nintendo 64. With a deep wrestling engine that emphasized technical maneuvers, it is beloved by fans that love a deeper style than that offered by the later Smackdown series that morphed into the current eponymous line.

But the fine folks at Chikara have wanted a video game for awhile. While their previous attempt to make a Streets of Rage-esque brawler fell flat after two developers and a failed Kickstarter, But now they are going with an Unreal Engine based wrestling grappler that feels incredibly familiar to fans of No Mercy. Check out the full video below:

The game is currently on Steam Greenlight and Chikara is asking fans to help support it for a Steam release there. Head to Greenlight Chikara to lend your support.
