Former NJPW and current AEW pro wrestler Kenny Omega shared some new information about the upcoming AEW console game! According to Omega, the development team at Yukes and AEW plan to show off the game once again. There could be wrestler reveals and more news to come very soon. Additionally, the new AEW console game features cross-platform play in online matches and players may defend titles in online matches too. AEW is looking to excite fans in not just the wrestling industry but gaming as well. Here’s what Kenny Omega had to say, courtesy of Fightful and Wrestling Observer Radio:
“We’re working on our next presentation. We’re working non-stop, around the clock, on this game. There are a lot of deadlines we’re trying to reach. We don’t ever want to keep anyone in the dark completely and it’s been quite some time since we’ve had an actual update, not just information, but we want to be able to show people something. I would expect, hopefully, to have something prepared for people, to show, very soon. I don’t want to promise at the pay-per-view or the pay-per-view week, but we were hoping to possibly show a little more of where we’re at and progression and reveal possibly a new character or character. It is coming along.
We have a lot of match types, game modes, there is going to be cross-platform and an online component where you can create your own lobby and things like that and have fun with friends, the ability to defend belts. Plenty of ways to interact with people in different ways to build a community and interact with people and have fun. In this wrestling universe, it’s not just about the wrestling itself, it’s always about bringing people together as best you can, which is not the main focus, but I would like to see that happen and it’s one of my focuses. I would like to see that happen, for this game to be a chance for wrestling fans and people who enjoy the game to have as many outlets as they can to bring their friends together and have fun, offline or online.”
