There has been no news on this new Fire Pro game since it's announcement. I was just curious if anyone knew whether or not the project had been cancelled? And yes, I give a damn. Not sure why. Don't judge.
...This Thing Still Alive?
This just randomly came into my head today as well. I can only hope they canned it in favor of a true Fire Pro game release, but I know that's about as unlikely as it gets. If anything they probably cancelled it and that's the last we'll hear of it.
The last I saw of it was a video on Gamespot from PAX last year.
I guess the one caveat there would be is if we haven't seen it because they decided to go back and completely rework it so it is vastly improved over the terrible-looking game shown in the video linked above. I'd be willing to at least give it a look.
More evidence it's not dead (though pretty indirect)
Beyond Wreckateer, Microsoft's adding Avatar Famestar support to already released games Full House Poker, and A World of Keflings, and several upcoming games: Fire Pro Wrestling, Homerun Stars, and Avatar Motocross Madness
Just brought the game, its an ok easy to pick up and play basic wrestling game....singles & tag, no gimmick steel cage, tables or anything like that.. which would've been cool but dumb since its your avatar or some made up one doing the matches.. but it has the tame old school WWF Arcade or WWE All-Stars type feel to it, you have to play to unlock so it'll be awhile before I can see all the moves and what not.. I guess not until there a kick-starter to hire AKI to make a pro-wrestling sandbox Create-a-promotion game where you can make all your favorite wrestlers, gimmick matches and story what not... there will be nothing but the "madden series" rated TV PG WWE #? games and goofy type arcade games like this...
Would be nice if a more open game where to come along and fill that void that's missing in wrestling games, but I'm not sure if the demand is even there, I'm sure people would love it..
I guess it's fun on a very basic level, but this is still a crushing disappointment. It's a shame because there are a few hints of holy shit honest to goodness FIRE PRO WRESTLING in there. The customization options seem to be leaning in that direction. Not as deep as a true Fire Pro game, but pretty impressive for what is clearly a throwaway avatar game.
The gameplay is just way too bouncy and janky (and obviously not like Fire Pro). I can't imagine we'll ever get a real console Fire Pro game, at least in the US, ever again. It would be a sad fucking shame if THIS is what the general public remembers this franchise as.
I just tried the Trial and I HATED it! The gameplay just feels... cheap.
Putting the hallowed Fire Pro name on this is an insult. Why couldn't they just port Fire Pro Wrestling D and maybe add online battles and the ability to share CAWs? That game is still amazing.
I almost was feverish to get this today. I was melancholic and went..."Well...Fire Pro Wrestling I ALWAYS here as some legendary Wrestling game...I am in the mood for one.....and cheap. Lets check it out Avatars aside."
Researched and watched. Nope, this isnt a XBLA game it is an Avatar Indie game that someone actually put time into.
Sad for the legends of fire pro wrestling sounds awesome.
