OK... so here's the BIGGER news. We're the largest Fire Pro community in the world. Period.
Spike and GHM realize this. They want our input, and I've been chosen as the represenative.
This forum is for everyone to post their wish lists and desires for FIRE PRO WRESLTING HD.
I have a week to pick out the 10 best ideas (or most requested) and send them to my contacts at GHM and S-Neo. Make sure you understand what is already confirmed so you don't go requesting stuff that you don't need to. If you make a stupid request, I may be forced to skip your entire post. I don't have time to waste on ridiculous ideas. This shit is SERIOUS.

Let's get to work.
holy fucking shit?




And 2 new match types that haven’t been revealed yet
I would hope for Ladder or Iron Man but I am expecting the GBA matches Falls count anywhere

New match features
Audience ranking is great bonus right after the match, some of my favourite FP moments are in the GBA games where I had 100% matches for the showman fans.

Can anyone explain captains fall and lucha? Is lucha a mode where leaving the ring equals a tag?

I gotta go check out the thread and see if anyone is holding down MMA, with some minor grapple/rule changes FP could have KOC level MMA.

well i played fire pro d but i do hope we get a us release


Its cool though that it already has the option of full translation in the menu..So i wouldn't be surprised to see it come on the NA store as well.
There's also a separate thread on the FPC for Fire Pro Wrestling 20th Anniversary Collection for Wii.


Includes a new version of Blazing Tornado with contributions from Suda51.

Probably only a Japan release so modding will be necessary though.

We've been waiting for this for a few weeks now and I was crossing my fingers so hard for King of Colosseum 3 - no dice. :(


HOLY FUCKING SHIT! That is a straight megaton for me right there (if there is a way to get it on a US console).

I never would have expected that. And I'm really digging LoW right now, but man having Fire Pro on a current gen system, I would pay 80 bucks for it (especially with an english translation in the options).


There's also the Fire Pro Wrestling 20th Anniversary Collection for Wii owners.
Release Date: TBA
EXCLUSIVELY for the Nintendo Wii
Format: Disc
Region: Japan

Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and S-Neo

Grasshopper Manufacture and S-Neo are combining their efforts on the ‘redux’ of Blazing Tornado.

The new version of Blazing Tornado is based on the original coin-op version of the game, but features new characters and scenarios created by Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture.

Gameplay will remain true to Masato Masuda’s original Blazing Tornado, but will be "expanded for current technology".

Known modes and match types

One on one
Tag team
Battle Royale
Death Match
Blazing Road

BLAZING ROAD is a story driven single player mode where players take control of a rookie and fight their way to the top of the wrestling world.

There are 2 main story paths: Face and Heel.
There are multiple endings within each path.

Events take place both in and out of the ring.

Story sequences feature voiceovers. English subtitles will be an option.

The way you win matches will determine what happens in the story.

In addition to regular moves and finishers, certain "cinematic finishers" can be triggered during Champion Road matches. These are optional and will alter the story.

No edit mode in Blazing Tornado Redux.


Count down till the inevitable what about wii posts. Never played a wrestling game that I liked so am cautiously optimistic I guess.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. Now everyone will be satisfied.


because of achievements/trophies saved games will probably be locked, so no downloading of awesome roster edits. will buy for online play. 9.9.09, so far away :[


Worships the porcelain goddess
This is a joke right? The tears coming from my eyes aren't real are they? OMFG GENERATION REDEEMED!

so i can play this somehow on my us playstation right? assuming it wont get a translation (which if so ill get on 360).

I'm praying for the same thing...

I know there were some folks that found a way to get Tekken DR off of the Japanese store months earlier then it's release here... I hope that same loophole is still out there.

Yes, it's called importing a Japanese PSN card or ticket.

Edits were kept in separate saves for the last game


Oh, you mean that they removed the only reason people wouldn't want to play the games and increased everything else and oh, by the way, here are the old ones?
