Hulk Hogan's Main Event launching Superhero comeback on Kinect

Most would agree the Kinect for Xbox 360is criminally lacking in handlebar moustaches, 24-inch pythons and even the slightest hint of Hulkamania. Thankfully, Majesco Entertainment (TETRIS Party Deluxe, Cooking Mama) is looking to right this most egregious wrong with Hulk Hogan's Main Event, a new motion-sensing wrestling game endorsed by and starring the legendary Hulkster himself.

Hulk Hogan's Main Eventwill let players create their own wrestler and learn over 30 combos moves and show poses from WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan (real name: Terry Gene Bollea), who has been wrestling since the 70s and most recently joined the roster at Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA). Once adequately trained in the fine arts of Hulkdom, players can take the fight to the ring in nine different venues including a school gym, a backyard ring and a big league stadium. The game will also include a two-player tag-team mode plus an arsenal of (virtual) chairs, trash cans, ladders and other pieces of wrestling weaponry which can be used to beat the (virtual) crap out of their opponents.

%26ldquo;Listen up, people! You will feel the power of Hulkamania when you step into this game,%26rdquo; said Hulk Hogan, ever the self-promoter. %26ldquo;Whether you are taking the damage or selling the pain, this game will let you unleash your inner wrestler as you hype up the crowd while putting the hurt on anyone that stands in your way!%26rdquo;

Added Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco: %26ldquo;Partnering with the Hulkster for Hulk Hogan%26rsquo;s Main Event is a dream come true and we%26rsquo;re looking forward to releasing a no holds barred motion-based experience that offers a full suite of over-the-top moves.%26rdquo;

The game will be developed by Panic Button, whose previous tag team efforts with Majesco include 2010's Attack of the Movies 3D, and 2009's Go Play Lumberjacks.

Hulk Hogan's Main Event is scheduled tobringits Fives Moves of Doom to the KinectFall. Um, brother.
