After being announced
at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show and scheduled for a 2011 release it never made, Fire Pro-Wrestling
resurfaces and is now available on the Xbox Marketplace
. Developed by Japanese studio Spike, the Avatar-ed version of one of gaming's oldest series
is priced at 800 MSP.
Apart from throwing you into 3D wrestling action, FPW
uses the Avatar FameStar
cross-game reward program. So while you can obtain suitably outlandish garb for your Avatar using in-game currency, you can also earn themed costumes based on other FameStar games like Full House Poker
. There's offline and online multiplayer for 2-4 players, with tag matches, team matches (2 on 2, 1 on 2, or 1 on 3), 4-way matches, and battle royals.
