Zen-Nihon Pro-Wrestling is the very first Zen Nihon Pro-Wrestling video game ever. Wrestlers of the promotion, including founder Giant Baba and the Four Great Lords: Mitsuharu Misawa, Toshiaki Kawada, Akira Taue and Kenta Kobashi, compete for the Triple Crown Championship, the World Tag Team Championship, or take part in the Champion Carnival or Strongest Tag Determination League. A team battle mode pits the old guard versus the super generation. There is also a tutorial mode where Giant Baba teaches the player the basics of the game. Sixteen wrestlers to choose from and up to four players can play together.
