WCW vs nWo: World Tour is a professional wrestling video game released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64 game console. In addition to single, tag team, handicap, and battle royal, match modes not seen in future releases include a WCW versus nWo tournament, round-robin tournament, and league tournaments more familiar to Japanese wrestling. Unlike today’s wrestling games, World Tour features no create-a-wrestler mode, story mode, or ring entrances and has a limited amount of actual WCW wrestlers. It also makes no reference to championship belts and, upon the successful completion of a tournament, shows an illustration of a fist raising a gold trophy. A championship belt creation feature was touted prior to the game’s release, but this was ultimately scrapped. Players can also attempt the “league challenge” in which a player must defeat several wrestlers from a given “promotion” in a row. Doing so allows a player to compete for that promotion’s championship against a hidden character: Diamond Dallas Page (WCW), Wrath (DOA), Glacier (IOU), Randy Savage (NWO). Once a player has earned every championship they unlock “World Wide Wrestling” a longer challenge consisting of wrestlers from all four promotions. The championship match being against another hidden character: Joe Bruiser (a caricature of Muhammad Ali).
