In the game he previously wrote for, 1994’s Super Fire Pro Wrestling Special, your main character had to contend with unexplained death and murder on his way to the world championship. Those familiar with the story and Suda’s work in the industry are expecting even more carnage from this add on. Suda 51 was on hand at GDC for the announcement, talking to many in the gaming industry. That includes one New Day member who may be looking to jump ship after this Tuesday’s SmackDown.
Got the chance to sit and chat with @suda_51 about him coming back to the #FireProWrestling franchise, how amazing of a wrestling game it is, about how great they are because they listen to and interact with their community, and about the fact that they need 3 new people in it ? pic.twitter.com/s5lJKdOIR7
