Near the tail end of the PS2’s lifecycle, Agetec picked up Fire Pro Wresting Returns and localized it for North America. The sprite wrestler will suplex its way to PlayStation 3 later today when Sony Computer Entertainment America re-releases Fire Pro Wrestling as a PS2 Classic. Check out our interview with the producer of Fire Pro Wrestling here.
Most surprised to see that Agetec was able to hold the Fire Pro Wrestling license for so long since the game is actually from Spike – now Spike Chunsoft. I wonder if they still have the rights to Disaster Report or Raw Danger. While Raw Danger has a bizarre localization, it’s a pretty amusing game.
