Spike Chunsoft has detailed it’s 2020 Roadmap for its wrestling title Fire Pro Wrestling World. The game has continued to release new content since its initial release in 2017.

The roadmap was posted by the Director of Fire Pro Wrestling World, Tomoyuki Matsumoto.

Fire Pro Wrestling World is a grappling game developed and published by Spike Chunsoft. Players keep returning to the game because they can “customize every aspect of the match, from your wrestler to the ring itself, in your fight for the championship belt,” according to the Steam website.

Starting in January is the second part of the “Yoshihiro Takayama Charity DLC.” This charity drive is to help Takayama as he recovers from a severe injury. Takayama’s friend, Minoru Suzuki, who is in charge of the Suzuki-gun stable and wrestling in the NJPW promotion, created the “Takayamania” foundation to assist with medical bills. New Japan Pro Wrestling has also hosted special events in support of Takayama, most recently in August 2019. Wrestlers from all over helped support Takayama, and now gamers have the opportunity to help.

The second DLC will come with unique rings, logos, and new wrestler chest parts in edit mode themed after “Takayamania.”

Spike Chunsoft is donating all revenue from this DLC to the “Takayamania” foundation. Spike Chunsoft stated the first DLC had a great response: “The first charity DLC, released on December 18, 2017, has raised around 3,840,000 yen as of September 2019.” This amount translates to roughly $35,106.10.

Additional wrestlers to be added as DLC will be announced. Further details will be released in January.

In February, there is a new Scenario Mode coming to the game. The scenario details the path of Morio Sumisu’s son, as he tries to become a pro wrestler while not following in his father’s tragic footsteps. The scenario is included as part of the PlayStation 4 Season Pass.

In Spring 2020, there is a PlayStation 4 patch incoming that will raise the edit limit of wrestlers, plus parts and move craft modes.

Spike Chunsoft will continue to work on the “game balance, bug fixes, and improving the quality of the DLC” but also states these modes “mark the end of an era.”

The full details for the upcoming additions to Fire Pro Wrestling World are now available on the Spike Chunsoft blog.

Fire Pro Wrestling World is currently out for Steam/PC and PlayStation 4.
