AEW Fight Forever modes have leaked courtesy of a major online retailer listing. Furthermore, we’ve also been treated to some new screenshots.
The online retailer in question is Amazon UK, however, that retail listing has since been removed. So, it seems that the gameplay modes and screenshots were revealed ahead of time.
Thankfully, with the internet being the internet, eagled-eyed gamers managed to grab those details before they were removed forever. However, the retail listing did not reveal a release date.
That being said, hopefully, AEW Fight Forever will arrive this year. At this time, the Amazon listing only had a generic placeholder release date of December 31st, 2022.
Furthermore, according to the game’s description via the listing, it stated that gameplay will be a mixture of “nostalgic arcade” wrestling with “innovative All Elite Wrestling finishers and tandem offensive moves.”
AEW Fight Forever is inspired by No Mercy
Developed by Yuke’s, AEW star Kenny Omega who is overseeing the project, previously confirmed that gameplay will be inspired by the N64 classic, WWF No Mercy. Omega also previously confirmed that Hideyuki Iwashita, former director of No Mercy will be helping out with the development of the game.
As well as a packed roster, AEW Fight Forever will feature a “deep career mode” with “wrestler customisation”, various match types, online modes and “signature AEW arenas”. So, we can expect to see flagship weekly shows such as Dynamite and Rampage. Additionally, major PPV events such as Double or Nothing, All In, Full Gear and more will feature.
