* Unlock Title Match mode:
To unlock the Title Match mode, play through Story mode with any character and become world Champion. Once the game's credits are finished, press START to return to the main menu and choose to play through Story mode once again. At the character selection screen, choose your new World Champion (the character you used to complete Story mode with the first time, now indicated with a championship belt icon next to their portrait).
After Story mode's brief intro, a new menu will be unlocked and displayed before each match enabling the ability to change arenas and customize match types.
* Easier Opponents in STORY mode:
Start Story Mode with a created Wrestler WITHOUT any Championship victories. The created wrestler's level should be at a minimum of level 10 from training in the SPARRING mode. Since the opponent's level starts at level 00 to begin with (and increases with every STORY mode championship victory), this will give your created Wrestler an unfair advantage over the competition.
The higher your created character's level, the greater the advantage is while starting off.
* More difficult opponents in STORY mode:
With every championship victory your created character wins in STORY mode (which is displayed by a small Championship belt icon next to your created character's name in the STORY mode character selection screen).
The number of Championship belts you have acquired determines the difficultly of the competition in STORY mode. The championship system works the same way as the level system in SPARRING mode. The more championship belts you acquire, the greater the stats and difficulty each opponent
becomes. Level 00 is the default difficultly and increases to 99 Championships (or Level 99 difficulty).
Furthermore, STORY mode's difficulty setting is not interchangeable. Each created Wrestler must reach the 99 championship difficulty individually.
