Fire Pro Wrestling will be arriving on Playstation 4 this summer. The critically acclaimed game was already released on PC back in December 2017 and now the New Japan Pro Wrestling affiliated game will be making the jump to the PS4 on August 9th in Japan and an as yet undisclosed Summer date in the US and Europe.
Fire Pro Wrestling is the popular 2D wrestling franchise that dates back to the late 1980’s. Up until the NJPW partnership, the Fire Pro games never featured officially licensed wrestlers. Instead, the developers focused on addictive gameplay mechanics while the robust creation suite allowed players to recreate famous wrestlers.
Fire Pro Wrestling World for PS4 will feature licensed NJPW wrestlers, their actual move sets and for the first time, a Young Lion story mode.
Japanese wrestling commentator Chris Charlton recently posted translated updates from Fire Pro officials which included the following updates:
- There will be 39 Official New Japan Pro Wrestling stars in the latest update
- Management mode will be released following the PS4 Launch
- A Junior Heavyweight focused campaign mode is in the works
After PS4 Fire Pro World and the NJPW update, next content will be management and a junior heavyweight focused campaign. https://t.co/h7Hn91JLKt
