Spike Chunsoft have introduced Killer7 director Goichi Suda (aka Suda 51) can be returning to an outdated hang-out to pen new story DLC for wrestleman sim Fire Pro Wrestling World. I’m not usually a lot for wrestling video games, however even I can respect this collection, previously by Human Leisure. Snappy motion, highly effective character creation and a historical past of surprisingly heavy story modes. I’m anticipating nice, probably unsettling issues from new DLC ‘The Vanishing’, after the completely bleak ending of Fireplace Professional Wrestling Particular for the SNES, which I WILL SPOIL BELOW.
Suda’s earliest work was a pair of SNES Fireplace Professional video games, first as director after which as state of affairs author for Tremendous Fireplace Professional Wrestling Particular. That state of affairs advised the story of a fictional participant character in a world of real-world wrestlers with altered names. As the sport performs out, you climate some robust defeats alongside the best way to the highest. Worse nonetheless, your coach dies in suspicious circumstances, and also you even find yourself unintentionally killing your finest buddy within the ring. And then you definately meet reigning champ Ric Aptitude (Dick Slender on this recreation to keep away from angering legal professionals) and it will get worse.
Ric Aptitude is supposed to be a reasonably low-down soiled type on this planet of actual wrestling, however he’s positively demonic right here. He brutally murders your tag-team companion, blood all over the place. Taunting you additional, he confesses to murdering your coach. Simply so as to add completely soul-crushing insult to damage, your girlfriend leaves you throughout your climactic last match in opposition to the wrestlefiend. Ultimately you develop into world champion, however at what price? The story mode ends along with your character sinking into melancholy, a nonetheless picture of their suburban residence… after which a gunshot rings out – reduce to black.
And now he’s again on the Fireplace Professional author’s desk. Understandably, followers are nervously excited. Might this be the soul-crushing counterpart to the feelgood tag-team of Kenny Omega and Undertale creator Toby Fox? I hope to take a deep dive off the highest rope at this one when it’s launched. Within the meantime, Fireplace Professional Wrestling World is out now on Steam for £23.79/€27.99/$30.
