The following press release was issued on Wednesday to promote the “AEW Fight Forever” video game.

Vienna/Austria, Jacksonville/Florida, Tokyo/Japan August 3, 2022: THQ Nordic GmbH and  All Elite Wrestling, LLC (AEW) and YUKE’S Co., Ltd. today confirmed that the release of AEW: Fight Forever will be the tag-team event of the century! The two companies have joined forces to  bring developer YUKES’ latest creation to PS4™, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and  Nintendo® Switch. 

“One of the first things I did after signing with AEW was to ask Tony Khan to let me help  assemble the best gaming team on the planet, to make the best wrestling game ever,” said  Kenny Omega, EVP of AEW and former AEW World Champion and AEW World Tag Team  Champion. “Well, we just landed the perfect finisher by partnering with global publishing and  distribution powerhouse THQ Nordic for AEW: Fight Forever. The THQ brand has long been  synonymous with wrestling games – there is simply no more qualified partner to bring AEW: Fight Forever to the millions of wrestling fans the world over.” 

YUKE’S president and CEO Yukinori Taniguchi said “I am both gratified and excited to have the  opportunity to work with AEW—who is breathing new life into the pro wrestling industry—and the  THQ Brand, with whom we have created an entire era of pro wrestling games. Using the  expertise we have cultivated over the years, we are taking on this project with the ultimate staff  from the YUKE’S Development Team in order to recreate AEW’s appeal within a video game to  the highest degree. We hope that fans will enjoy experiencing the most cutting-edge technology,  and the next evolution, in pro wrestling gaming.”

“Kenny’s incredible vision for AEW: Fight Forever is informed by his wrestling pedigree both  inside the ring and on the controller,” said Executive Producer Reinhard Pollice, THQ Nordic.  “Combine that vision with YUKES’ unparalleled wrestling game development history is resulting  in an AEW experience that draws heavily on the arcade feel that first won wrestling gamer hearts  more than two decades ago.” 

A touch of nostalgia is just the beginning in AEW: Fight Forever. Players can look forward to  pulling off the most current wrestling moves seen on wildly popular AEW programming. This, in  addition to innovative, tandem offensive moves. Online co-op wrestling is going completely next  level with Tag Team matches that feature sequences of team maneuvers performed with simple  commands. A long roster of the most popular AEW wrestlers, deep career mode, create-a wrestler, signature AEW arenas, multiple match types and even some good ol’ fashioned,  unsanctioned fun await!
