New Fire Pro?!

From Destructoid:

One of the oldest wrestling video game series (and one in which famed Suda 51 got his start making games) appears to be getting its first installment since 2012, as Spike Chunsoft has launched a teaser site and video titled "Pro Wrestling." Not only that but it appears to be just the fifth game in the long-running series's history to officially be localized in the west, as the "Pro Wrestling" Twitter account name is "3/2 in San Francisco."

Whatever they plan to show on March 2 in San Francisco (cough cough GDC), they likely wouldn't bother doing in the states if they had no plans to release it there. The first games in the series to be localized were Fire Pro Wrestling A localized as Fire Pro Wrestling, and Fire Pro Wrestling 2 for the Game Boy Advance, followed by Fire Pro Wrestling Returns on PlayStation 2. That really bad avatar-based Xbox Live Arcade title was the last we saw of the franchise until now.

Truth be told I've never personally played a Fire Pro Wrestling game, but what I hear of its strategy and timing focus sounds alluring. I hear nothing but harrowing tales of 2K's WWE titles, so the only fairly modern wrestling game I played and enjoyed was WWE All Stars even though I haven't followed pro wrestling since junior high school.

N64's WrestleMania 2000 and especially No Mercy will always hold the championship belt of wrestling games in my heart, but if this turns out good I'll be more than willing to get a refresher on the annals of wrestling lore.

There is a FP series discussion going on right now in the What are you Playing thread. I'll be keeping tabs on this for sure. My hope is that production is near and development is almost complete. I noticed in that video they have a lighting issue right before the guys lock up so that tells me they have some polishing left to do. My guess is a fall or winter release here in 2017.

Im not a PC gamer but the idea of having the massive roster with community support and mods makes me want to pick this up. I also just read a tutorial on how to use my ps4 controller on my PC so that makes me even more enticed. Worst case scenario I just buy it for PlayStation.

You won't regret it if you pick it up for PC. Fire Pros are amazing. I even love when you first get them and have to adjust everyone so they fit the wrestler they are supposed to be. And on PC, it should even be easy to mod in theme songs and names.

PC. Though I would imagine a PS4 port will be coming, and they mention they want to port it to Switch as well.

Anyways, I have over 300 CAWs already, lol
