As an avid wrestling fan, being able to see another company other than WWE succeed breeds competition and brings another conversation to a much needed niche of entertainment. Within the past few years we’ve seen independent promotions thrive taking advantage of the internet as a new base of operation, one area in particular is Japan.
Over the past 2 years NJPW has begun it’s crossing into the mainstream American market with the likes of Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, Tetsuya Naito, and Hiroshi Tanahashi manning the ship while so many other up and coming stars are making a name for themselves so it was only a matter of time that they would be front and center in some way shape or form. In Fire Pro Wrestling World, the next installment of the long standing Japanese Wrestling game series, you will be able to enjoy the chance to play as several of your favorite wrestlers while looking at this badass box art.
Real Wrestlers, Real Moves – NJPW, Japan’s premiere pro-wrestling promotion, joins the roster! Battle alongside and against your favorites in the all-new Fighting Road scenario mode.
Mix Up the Rules – Modes include Deathmatch (steel cage, barbed wire, or landmines), no-holds barred Gruesome Fighting, and SWA homebrew rules that mix pro-wrestling and MMA.
Unlimited Customization – Create your dream wrestler from over a thousand devastating moves, and even more body parts, to battle for custom championship belts. Personalize the ring, mat logos, and even the referee!
Realistic Simulation – Give your creations personalities with a robust system that defines their every action. Does your wrestler play to the crowd, or play dirty? You provide actors for the ringside drama.
Play Online – Share your custom wrestlers and organize bouts with players from around the world.
Fire Pro Wrestling World is currently available on Steam and will be coming to the Playstation 4 in Japan on August 9th while North American fans will have to wait until August 28th.
