Is Fire Pro Wrestling World a NJPW game ?

Hi guys

The next wrestling game that is scheduled to come out in 2018 is Fire Pro Wrestling World.
Originally, I thought that this game won't be sponsored by any promotion since the older
ones didn't.

Today, I found this article that states the following:

"New Japan Pro Wrestling just announced during their Wrestle Kingdom's Fan Fiesta event that the wrestlers of NJPW will be officially coming to Fire Pro Wrestling World videogame with an update this summer."

This is the full article:

On the licensed wrestling video games on Wikipedia, Fire Pro Wrestling World is listed under New Japan Pro Wrestling, although the game's Wikipedia page doesn't say anything about it being
licensed by New Japan Pro Wrestling or that it has anything to do with New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Does this mean that Fire Pro Wrestling World a New Japan Pro Wrestling game, like how WWE 2K18 is a WWE game?

No. This is more like Pro Evolution finally getting real clubs instead of listing fake ones

Can confirm it's not an NJPW game, it's been out for PC for a while now. They're just partnering so that there'll be "legit" NJPW guys in the game instead of user made edits.
