Last week ahead of Wrestling Kingdom 12, New Japan Pro Wrestling announced that they’re getting an official video game. It wasn’t a brand new game, as some had speculated, but rather that their roster will be officially coming to Fire Pro Wrestling World when it arrives on PlayStation 4 this Summer. 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 Summer 2018.
We’re now seeing cross-promotional efforts come to light, as a new trailer for Fire Pro Wrestling World has been uploaded to Spike Chunsoft’s YouTube channel featuring pro wrestler Togi Makabe. Even though the promo he cuts is in Japanese, his intensity and charisma shines through.
Check out the latest Fire Pro Wrestling World NJPW trailer starring Togi Makabe below:
