The Switch has a few quirky Indie wrestling games with retro vibes, which is nice, and the questionable WWE 2K18; the latter was not a high point for the genre, to put it mildly. Those hoping for wrestling action a bit more grounded in the current scene may be keeping an eye on All Elite Wrestling’s first game, which now has a confirmed name – AEW Fight Forever.
Originally announced in late 2020, there haven’t been many updates during the development to date; we do know that Japanese studio Yuke’s is behind the project, a team with pedigree on older titles like WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw. Along with confirmation of the name, AEW Games only stated that it’s coming to ‘consoles and PC’, while releasing two videos. At the top is a reveal of Nyla Rose, and below is a look at Kris Statlander.
It’ll be interesting to see how this game does when it eventually ships, as All Elite Wrestling continues to grow its audience. Then there’s the question of whether it’ll come to Switch; if this title also comes to PS4 and Xbox One, for example, there may be a decent chance.
Let us know what you think of these development clips – are you optimistic about AEW Fight Forever?
