All Elite Wrestling‘s Kenny Omega recently sat down with Raj Prashad of UPROXX to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about the recent launch of AEW Fight Forever, a game that Omega has had a heavy hand in helping create over the last few years, Omega reflected upon how hard it was to build a brand new wrestling game engine from the ground up.
“I think that if [the game] can stand apart as something different, but something special and something that people enjoy and that is fun, then it’s kind of mission successful,” Kenny Omega said. “We had to build something new from the ground up and it was very hard to get everything that we wanted. You can only get what’s possible and what time and budget allow for.”
One of the main criticisms coming out of initial reviews for the game was the lack of overall content the game launched with; Omega made it clear that they will continue to add to the game with modes like the upcoming Stadium Stampede as well as additions to the game’s ever-growing roster.
“There is always going to be additions to this game. You haven’t seen anything yet. You’ve seen a little bit, but you haven’t seen a lot of things that I’m very excited for,” Kenny Omega said. “There’s something in particular coming up that, it’s sort of been leaked a little bit, so the Stadium Stampede mode I’m very excited for and I think people are going to have a lot of fun.
“It’s something so incredibly unique and I think it’s going to be great. The roster, we’re going to add bodies to the roster as well. Custom parts for create a wrestler, all that stuff. I can’t wait to share more announcements with people and to see more of the roster, more match types and see the videos turn up online for how people are enjoying it.”
