Fire Pro Wrestling is a long running professional wrestling video game series originated from Japan, started in 1989 by Human Entertainment, recently continued by Spike.
Super Fire Pro Wrestling Premium X for the Super Famicom is often considered to be the best 16-bit wrestling game ever made, thanks to a roster of dozens of wrestlers, a complex gameplay based on timing rather than button mashing (prevalent in most games developed in the US or the UK) and a complete Edit mode (CAW/Create a Wrestler) that allowed the player to choose between hundreds of looks and moves. Although it was never officially translated, a mostly complete fan translation emerged on the internet, and when combined with the evolution of powerful emulators such as ZSnes turned the game into a fan favourite. Also popular, but to less extent due to the lack of a translation are the Fire Pro Wrestling G and D (for the PlayStation and the Sega Dreamcast respectively). The only games that were officially translated were Fire Pro Gaiden: Blazing Tornado (the arcade version) and the two titles released for the Game Boy Advance.
Suda 51 was a writer for the Super Famicom versions, delivering one of the most shocking endings in video game history.
The series also introduced female wrestlers long before they appeared in North American games, totaling three games with women's wrestling only.
While North American games all made their passage to 3D polygonal models as 32 bit consoles arrived, Fire Pro Wrestling still relies on 2D sprites for the characters in the ring. Spike also has another wrestling game series in full 3D, King of Colosseum.
