Fans of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) were already pumped about Full Gear owing to the impressive lineup of matches, but they were especially anticipating the debut of a new trailer for AEW’s first video game.
However, the PlayStation YouTube channel has decided to give us an early present by releasing a brand new gameplay trailer for the game, and it looks like a worthy spiritual successor to No Mercy. You can see the teaser up top, and it has appearances from Jon Moxley, Orange Cassidy, Sting, Britt Baker, Chris Jericho, Adam Hangman Page, MJF, Jade Cargill, and many more.
The real-life Moxley, Jericho, Baker, and Page discuss the game and what fans can anticipate, and we get to see a ton of gameplay videos, including the Lights Out match (complete with tacks) and numerous other match types.
Since MJF appears to be on the path to a Title reign at Full Gear, it makes sense that he receives some prominence here. Below you may view the official explanation from the video’s YouTube website, confirming Fight Forever as a title for the year 2023.
“With AEW: Fight Forever, you’ll be transported back in time. A long time ago, in the heyday of professional wrestling video games. By fusing the classic arcade-wrestler aesthetic with the cutting-edge finishers and tandem offensive skills of All Elite Wrestling, AEW: Fight Forever showcases the organization’s top stars in one package.
There will be a career mode, minigames, and more in AEW: Fight Forever, which will be released in 2023.” Also, CM Punk has been deleted from the game’s cover art and has not been included in any of the gameplay footage.
While he was featured prominently on the previous cover, the new one puts Kenny Omega in the spotlight alongside Page and Baker, and MJF in the second row alongside Chris Jericho, Chris Moxley, Chris Danielson, Chris Cargill, Chris Sting, and Chris Cassidy.
Tomorrow night at AEW Full Gear, fans can see Jon Moxley defend his AEW World Championship against MJF, as well as several of the other stars seen in the trailer. While fans are eagerly anticipating Omega and The Elite’s return to AEW following their suspension following their fight with CM Punk at the conclusion of All Out,
it appears that MJF is the frontrunner to succeed the current Champion. Tell us what you thought of the AEW: Fight Forever trailer in the comments below. Share your thoughts below!
