At the final hour, a delay has been announced for the PC version of Fire Pro Wrestling World. The PC version of the game was supposed to get the New Japan Pro-Wrestling Collaboration add-on on August 28, 2018, the same day the PlayStation 4 version of the game that includes that DLC appears. However, a Steam update says that it will now launch in September 2018. 

 

In the Fire Pro Wrestling World update, the developers note that work on the PlayStation 4 version of the game was more intensive than expected. As a result, it ate into time that was supposed to be spent on the New Japan Pro-Wrestling Collaboration DLC for the PC version. The delay to September 2018 is designed to help make sure the add-on looks and runs well on PCs.

 

Fire Pro Wrestling World’s New Japan Pro-Wrestling Collaboration DLC is an extensive one. It adds a lengthy Fighting Road campaign to the game, where people start out as a new wrestling hoping to join NJPW, then eventually become a champion. (You can see some of it here.) Lots of wrestlers from NJPW appear. For example, Yuji Nagata and Super Strong Machine act as your initial mentors.

 

Fire Pro Wrestling World is immediately available for the PC. It will come to the PlayStation 4 on August 28, 2018.
