New Japan Pro Wrestling is teaming up with the creators of the Fire Pro Wrestling video game series for the release of Fire Pro Wrestling World this summer on Playstation 4 and PC (via Steam). The announcement was made at the NJPW fan fest event ahead of Thursday’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 pay-per-view.
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.
