Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

Fire Pro is back!!!!!!!!

"Fire Pro Wrestling World" for the PS4 and Steam later this year!!



A new entry in the long-running Fire Pro Wrestling game series is coming to PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, publisher Spike Chunsoft announced today. Fans will get a first taste of the new Fire Pro Wrestling World soon, thanks to an Early Access release on Steam.

The new Fire Pro title looks like it will retain the same stark presentation the franchise is known for, focusing on deep customization and gameplay mechanics. You can check out first footage of Fire Pro Wrestling World in the debut trailer above.

Spike Chunsoft plans to include a variety of match types, including “Deathmatch (steel cage, barbed wire or landmines), MMA rules and no-holds barred Gruesome Fighting.” Fire Pro Wrestling World will feature online exhibition matches, tournaments, leagues, championship bouts and battle royals, as well as customization for wrestlers, rings and logos.

Fire Pro Wrestling World will be available on Steam Early Access sometime during the second quarter of 2017. The game’s PS4 release is still listed as TBD on the game’s official website, and Spike Chunsoft says the PC version will be in Early Access for “a few months

Thank you Spike and fuck yeah!!

Only ever played 6 Man Scramble back on the Saturn. Doesn't look like it has even changed since then.

Fire Pro Wrestling World...if only we could get this to port to consoles, I'd be a happy man.

Man I rarely play anything on my PC and this is still early access, but for 20 bucks and a ton of community CAWs I'm super tempted.

Because I don't believe anything until I see it. Too many things get canceled or at the very least delayed 3-4 times. So, when I see an actual release date for one or both of the consoles, then I'll get excited.

The PS4 version probably won't have a release date until it's out of early access since Sony won't allow that.

Well, my decision to hold off on buying it until it was out of early access lasted two whole days...

I REGRET NOTHING!

Is this game totally PVP or can you have a career mode offline too?

Well they don't even mention the PS4 version in this article either, but I have to believe Xbox is a much lower priority considering this is a Japanese centric game and Microsoft has like no presence there.

Then there's that abomination of an XBLA game they called FirePro.

NJPW branding on the game by the time it comes out for PS4/Steam.

Yes!

Actually... I'm not sure what case you're resting... it is coming to PS4 and PC as stated in the article on post #27 which you doubted...

It has the amazon preorder discount for prime members too, even though I see no indication that Best Buy is going to sell this.

Just got my physical copy from Amazon. I wanted to go digital but I figured I'd support the physical release of the game, plus it comes with an actual "instruction book" that's basically a roll call of all the NJPW guys.

Got my copy of the game from GameStop. They only received 1 copy of the game which disappointed me to hear. I hope this sells well and people give it a shot. FPW is truly amazing!

I bought my copy from GameStop on Tuesday after checking two different GameStop stores.

The first store that I went to had one listed in the system but could not locate it.

I tried In-Store Pick-Up at another store, in which the copy was immediately found. Shortly after that (showing In-Stock Online), that particular store no longer had In-Store Pick-Up as an option for FPWW.

Wouldn't be surprised if this mean that GameStop stores only received a single copy per store

I loved what I played so far. Long weekend coming up so I hope to try out all of the Customs that I've downloaded onto my PS4. Hoping all the Creators on Steam move their creations to the PS4!

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

I wouldn’t mind trying this as I’ve always heard about the series and enjoy wrestling games despite not being much of a wrestling fan anymore. I don’t have a PS4 though and don’t really have a computer to run Steam.

Funnily enough though I subscribe to a service that delivers retro games and just this week received this.

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

Yeah, I can see stores only having one copy available (which of course Gamestop will gut because hey, it's Gamestop). It's a full priced game that looks like it should be 20 bucks at most, with a license that nobody outside of hardcore wrestling fans would even recognize. It also has like one of the worst ways to download CAWs I've ever seen, and the game doesn't come with an instruction booklet and doesn't explain how to do things like, well, breathe during the match.

But it's still amazing.

Seriously though, to download CAWs you have to login to the site with your PSN id (through a built in web browser) that gets you to a page that is mostly in Japanese, then search for stuff. There's some really good stuff in there, but it's much easier to just browse to the webpage on your computer or phone. You then subscribe to a wrestler, then you have to restart the game to download them, then you have to go into editing the organizations because they're otherwise hidden.

I have no idea if this is just rushed design, or if they make it obtuse on purpose to try to shield themselves from the wrath of the WWE.

I absolutely love the old N64 wrestling games. Is this game like those? Are the controls difficult?

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

I personally think if you liked the n64 wrestling games that you'll like his, but they are different games.

It's very simple to learn. You have a light, medium, and strong button, and a button to basically run or throw your opponent into the ropes. When you get near the opponent, if you don't strike them you'll go into a grapple animation, and you have to time your button press... you'll do different moves when you press a button and a direction. So you have to wear your opponent down with the light moves and progress. It's pretty simple, actually, one could say almost simplistic, but the amount of customization is pretty incredible. Pretty much any wrestling move you can think of is in the game.

They just put out a patch this morning that restores 60fps so it plays much better post patch.
