Could WCW: Feel The Bang have been successful on N64?

There is no question that some of the most iconic pro wrestling games ever made has emerged from the late 90’s-early 00’s. One of the greatest pro wrestling games to have emerged from the 00’s was WWF No Mercy for the Nintendo 64. WWF No Mercy was developed by the AKI Corporation & Asmik Ace and published by THQ and released for the N64 in the 2000. WWF No Mercy was one of the best selling third party games for the N64 reaching over 1.1 million copies in sales. Since its release hardcore pro wrestling fans have been dying for a official spiritual successor to the N64 classic. The close that we came to a spiritual successor to WWF No Mercy was WCW: Feel The Bang; which is an unlicensed pro wrestling game that is highly to WWF No Mercy. WCW: Feel The Bang was released online sometime in 2019. There are many people who believe that if WCW: Feel The Bang was an official video game back in the N64 era it could have done pretty good in relation to commercial success. While WWF No Mercy was highly successful on the N64 in 2000; the WCW games that THQ published for the N64 in ‘97-‘98 performed better in sales than WWF No Mercy.

World Championship Wrestling had been dead for over two decades yet the nostalgia of games such as WCW vs The World and WCW/nWo Revenge is still very high. If World Championship Wrestling stayed in business for a few years longer; WCW: Feel The Bang could have definitely given WWF No Mercy a run for its money. In fact, WCW: Feel The Bang is miles ahead of title like WCW Mayhem and WCW Backstage Assault from ‘99-‘00. WCW: Feel The Bang is also miles ahead of the Nitro & Thunder games from ‘98-‘99. There is no question that WCW: Feel The Bang could have at least reached over one million in sales on the N64. Unfortunately, World Championship Wrestling had went out of business in 2001.
