It is possible to implement, but I doubt it has been done in playable format.

The problem is that Wesnoth has hexagonal tiles, while the terminal has square (or rectangular) tiles.
So this would not be easy to render nicely in the terminal like other roguelike game are.

But, I agree that would be nice to play the game in a terminal.
