WWF Rage in the Cage, known as WWF Mania Tour (ＷＷＦマニア・ツアー) in Japan, is an wrestling game for the Sega Mega-CD.
It offers the biggest selection of characters of all the WWF games released during the 16bit era, but is curiously lacking a tag team mode, made even more curious by the inclusion of popular tag team wrestlers such as the Nasty Boyz and the Headshrinkers. While there is no official reason for this, palette restrictions are a likely reason, although these were obviously worked around in the Sega Mega Drive WWF games, as these feature modes where up to 4 wrestlers can be seen simultaneously.
The extra space offered by the CD storage medium was used to add speech samples played before matches and (low quality) video files of each wrestler's signature move. Interestingly the wrestlers' intro music was not recorded but rerecorded for the game using lower quality instruments.
Gameplay is virtually identical to other Acclaim wrestling games. A new mode is the cage match, where the player has to escape the caged ring by climbing out while his opponent is knocked down.
The game also supports the six button control pad.
