During their Western press event last night, Spike Chunsoft announced Fire Pro Wrestling World for PlayStation 4 and PC. It will hit Steam Early Access in summer 2017 (and stay there for a few months), with a PS4 release date TBD.
“After a 10-year hiatus, director Tomoyuki Matsumoto’s Fire Pro Wresting World brings the hit franchise to Windows PC and PlayStation 4, with Steam Early Access confirmed for this Summer,” Spike Chunsoft says. “Building upon the core gameplay, the game will offer improved graphics, updated features and online matchmaking connecting players from around the world.”
Here’s what to expect from Fire Pro Wrestling World:
The greatest grappling game returns to take on the world!
Customize every aspect of the match, from your wrestler to the ring itself, in your fight for the championship belt.
- Play Online – Organize exhibition matches, tournaments, leagues, championship bouts and battle royals with players from around the world.
- Mix up the Rules – Modes include Deathmatch (steel cage, barbed wire or landmines), MMA rules and no-holds barred Gruesome Fighting.
- 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 CPU logic system that defines their every action. Does your wrestler play to the crowd, or play dirty? You provide actors for the ringside drama.
The PS4 version supports online and offline play for 1 to 4 players, while the PC version supports 1 to 8 players offline and 1 to 4 players online.
Spike Chunsoft also announced that Cyber Danganronpa: The Class Trial for PlayStation VR is releasing on March 7 in North America and March 10 in Europe. It will be free for PlayStation Plus members.
