Fire Pro Wrestling


Fire Pro Wrestling

"Fire Pro Wrestling" (ファイヤープロレスリング) is a long-running professional wrestling video game series originated from Japan, started in 1989 by Human Entertainment and recently continued by Spike. Beginning with "Fire Pro Wrestling Combination Tag" in 1989, the "Fire Pro Wrestling" series became popular in Japan, but did not see an international release until after Spike took over the franchise; "Fire Pro Wrestling A" was released internationally as "Fire Pro Wrestling" in 2001. Human also released a wrestling game outside the "Fire Pro Wrestling" series in 1989 for Game Boy. Titled "Pro Wrestling" in its native Japan, it was released internationally as "HAL Wrestling".

The series distinguishes itself from other wrestling games by focusing on timing and complex strategy as opposed to the button-mashing tactics with which most 2D wrestling gamers are familiar. Its become popular with importers, and at least one game, "Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium" received an unofficial fan translation with "Fire Pro Wrestling Returns" having one in the works as well. While North American games all made their passage to 3D polygonal models as 32-bit consoles arrived, "Fire Pro Wrestling" still relies on 2D sprites for the characters in the ring. Spike also has another wrestling game series in full 3D, "King of Colosseum".
