Japanese Exclusive Sega Dreamcast Wrestler 'Fire Pro Wrestling D' Fan Translated Into English

Fire-Pro-Wrestling-D-Sega-Dreamcast-Fan-TranslationAlthough role playing games are often the first ones to receive the much needed fan translation treatment, it would appear that a certain Japanese exclusive wresting title for the Sega Dreamcast has jumped the localisation queue. Fire Pro Wrestling D, an entry in the highly acclaimed professional wrestling video game series, can now be enjoyed and grappled in English.

While Fire Pro Wrestling D may not have pushed the Sega Dreamcast to its limits, the 2D fighter from 2001 is a fans favourite due to its intricate grappling system, one which focuses a lot on timed button presses and strategy. Unlike WWF Smackdown on the Sony PlayStation, Fire Pro Wrestling D strips away the glitz and glamour of licensed ring-brawlers and brings back the old-school wrestling feel originally found in the arcades many years ago. This is further emphasised by the isometric sprites on offer, along with the chaotic action earlier polygon wrestlers struggled to introduce.

To celebrate the Dreamcast's 14th birthday in North America, the ReviveDC Project has just released their fan translation of Fire Pro Wrestling D for download. Simply head on over to their announcement post to find out more. Until then, here's a sneak peek at what's on offer from an earlier preview of the game's translation.
