Mat Mania – The Prowrestling Network
Mat Mania – The Prowrestling Network, known in Japan as Exciting Hour - The Prowrestling Network (エキサイティング アワー ザ プロレスリング ネットワーク), or simply either as Mat Mania or Exciting Hour (エキサイティング アワー), is a 1985 Japanese pro wrestling-themed arcade game developed by Technōs Japan and published by Taito. It is a spiritual successor to the 1983 arcade game Tag-Team Wrestling, also developed by Technōs Japan, but published by Data East. It was also ported to the PS4 console in 2015.
The game is played by one or two players (alternating in turns). It is recognized among game enthusiasts as the first of the genre to have achieved a high level of playability. Further, the game aesthetics, sprite concepts & design, in-game theme music, and comical presentation have lent well in preserving it as a beloved arcade classic.
