Original (8/1): Yuke’s has been known to be working on AEW: Fight Forever, an upcoming wrestling game, since the end of 2020. There’s been a bit of a question as to which platforms the game will end up on, but it’s currently looking like a Switch version could be in the cards.
A listing for AEW: Fight Forever has surfaced on Amazon UK. The retailer lists a tentative December 31 release date and THQ Nordic as publisher, the latter of which was only confirmed a few weeks ago.
As for the actual game, it’ll offer “some of the biggest legends to enter the ring plus a stable of brand new, high-flying, AEW talent.” Some features include online co-op wrestling with Fight Forever and Tag Team matches, a career mode, customization, and more.
