    Welcome to the WWF Wrestlemania Arcade Game FAQ for the Sony PSX. This is
    the ultimate FAQ for WWF Wrestlemania! This game is avialable for many
    home entertainment system includind the PSX, SNES, Genesis, 32X, PC CD,
    and  
    it will be available for the Sega Saturn in March 1996. This game was made
    by Midway for the arcade. It had a short life in the arcade because of
    little distribution. It was hard to find because other games (MK3) where
    holding the attention of many gamers. This is one of the best overlooked
    games ever. It is now available for your home made by Acclaim. It also
    seems
    that this will be the last Midway game made for the home by Acclaim. It
    seems
    Acclaim had gained the rights for NBA JAM away from Midway. This made
    Midway
    angry, so now Midway will be doing its own home conversions. Midway has
    already converted one of their biggest games, MK3 for the home systems
    Acclaim
    only handled Europeon distribution.
