AEW Games is dropping a few new projects, and one will be a console video game. Fans are very excited to see what AEW has in store, because the company has promised a lot of big things.
While speaking to TalkSport, Kenny Omega discussed the progress of AEW’s console video game. This project is making headway toward an eventual release, and they are in constant contact with Yuke’s to get it done. There are also apparent challenges involved.
I’m really excited. We’re always in contact almost everyday with our teams at Yuke’s. I’m always in contact with Geta-san as well and I feel like we’ve got a really good chemistry and dynamic with one another. The biggest challenge we have right now is kind of representing the current wrestling style in a way that still make it feel like the games of old. Because things have changed, it’s not the same wrestling climate as it was in 2000.
AEW’s roster is comprised of many different wrestlers who all have their own unique styles. Omega said one of the biggest deals for him is to present each character with a unique feel so it accurately represents them in the video game.
As you know, we’ve kind of crossed over into a new generation of wrestling and wrestling styles and certain types of wrestling never ages. I wrestle a certain way and the way that I wrestle may not be the way that Fenix or Jungle Boy wrestles, but how can we represent all of those styles in a way where it makes you feel as if you’re playing as those people, how do we make that mesh well in an actual wrestling game? We’re getting closer to that answer and I think with every little new addition to our engine, we feel it out, we see it and play it out. Then we tweak it, then we have other ideas how to tweak it and then tweak it again from there and then maybe we’ll come up with a brand new idea.
No firm release date has been announced for the AEW video game, but they are coming along nicely. It might not be too long before they are ready to reveal more to the world. but the teaser trailer we got already was pretty epic.
