WWF Royal Rumble (WWFロイヤルランブル) is a 1993 wrestling game by Sculptured Software and Acclaim for the Sega Mega Drive and SNES based on the WWF Royal Rumble television show. It was the first game in the series to support the 6 Button Controller and generally a considerable improvement over its prequel, WWF Super Wrestlemania, due to added characters and gameplay modes. It was followed up by WWF Raw on various cartridge-based systems.
