So i've decided to create a video game concept for an upcoming "NJPW" game. This just shows the splash screen, main menu, match options, and a brief look at the roster.
Here is the video:
Now what i'm looking for is a realistic ratings list for the current NJPW roster and maybe some past alumini (that could realistically feature) I don't watch NJPW and have only picked up a few clips from Youtube.
From what i gather the 2 top guys are Tanahashi and Aj Styles, so i have rated them accordingly, but moving down into the mid card i get a little confused about how to accurately rate people so if anyone can shine a light on this that would be very helpful.
Also any ideas for future episodes such as different modes? or even a ROH game concept? I have previously focused on WWE 2K15 & UMPACT Wrestling 2015 game concepts, but i've decided to go down a slighlty different path this time around. Replies much appreciated.
Does anyone know why NJPW doesn't produce video games or action figures? Seems like they're missing the boat wit their current popularity.
They've done Wrestling Games and Action Figures, you can find some at PuroresuShop but most are exclusive for Japan since only the past two or three years they've gotten popular in the west. If they continue their popularity, they may attempt to branch out further aside from T Shirts.
They're only really huge in one region of the world. Most video game developers want a product that is popular internationally so that they can maximize advertising in multiple markets.
That's why niche sports game are quite rare.
There are tons of games that are exclusive to Japan. I just think it's just that pro wrestling in Japan isn't quite as popular as some make it out to be -- there hasn't been a Japanese wrestling game in a while.
