New Japan Pro Wrestling just announced that they’re getting an official video game, although it’s one we’re already well aware of. The stars of New Japan Pro Wrestling will be officially coming to Fire Pro Wrestling World when it arrives on PlayStation 4. The Spike Chunsoft title will allow players to control their favorite NJPW stars and compete in matches. It’s been out on PC since last year, and is set to arrive on PlayStation 4 in 2018.
The game was announced at the Wrestle Kingdom 2018 Fan Festa ahead of the company’s biggest event of the year, Wrestle Kingdom 12. The event will take place at the Tokyo Dome on January 4, 2018. It will feature a number of highly anticipated matches including Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito, and Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho.
Here’s more on the upcoming Fire Pro Wrestling World:
