Kenny Omega Provides An Update On AEW’s Upcoming Video Game

Top All Elite Wrestling Star and one of the promotion’s Executive Vice Presidents in Kenny Omega made an appearance on an episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio and provided an update on the promotion’s highly-anticipated upcoming video game ever since it was announced that a video game will be launched by the newly-created games division. According to Omega, they are working on their next presentation, which is something they are doing around the clock and there are a lot of deadlines they want to meet and it’s been quite some time since they have had an actual update to tell the fans, which is why the AEW EVP wants to prepare something for the fans very soon, maybe reveal a new character or a bunch of characters.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“We’re actually working on our next presentation.” “So, this, what we’re, we’re working nonstop around the clock on this game. There, there are a lot of deadlines that we’re, we’re really trying to reach. However, we don’t ever want to keep anyone in the dark completely and it’s been quite some time since we’ve had an actual update, not just of information, we want to be able to show people something.”

“I would expect hopefully to have something prepared for people to show very soon. I don’t want to promise at the Pay-Per-View or at the Pay-Per-View week, but we were hoping to possibly show a little more of where we’re at and a little bit more progression and reveal possibly a new character or characters.”

Kenny Omega also spoke about how there is a huge emphasis on the actual wrestling part of the game as well as how the feeling should be there of the flow of the actual match within the video game and how they want the user to assume the role of their favorite AEW Star and have complete control of the AEW Star.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“It is coming along though, and for us, at least for me, there’s a, there’s a large emphasis on just the wrestling aspect of the game.” “We want the wrestling too, and it’s tough to get that balance, but we want it to feel like, how a match would flow with, within a video game. So you know the matches will go, probably go, probably in general, go a little quicker.”

“But, we want them to feel like the user is able to assume the role of their favorite AEW Superstar and/or whoever it is that they create in the create-a-wrestler mode and when they mix it in the ring in whatever match type that they choose, that they’re having a fun time and they feel like they’re in control of their person and that the moves have impact. They feel everything, and that it’s fun. But at the same time, if you want to be really competitive about it, you know there is that there too.”

Kenny Omega then talked about how AEW will never be able to compete with WWE’s video games especially the production value and when you look at WWE 2K22, it is absolutely gorgeous, so he’s excited to see the entire game when it finally releases. Kenny Omega also talked about how rather than the promotion doing things they don’t normally do, they just want the wrestling aspect of the game to feel like how it used to feel for the people who would play wrestling games back in the day and just to have fun.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“We’ll never be to compete with the production value of WWE’s game. You look at 2K22, it’s absolutely gorgeous. So I’m excited to see all their bells and whistles when it finally releases. But for us, rather than pushing, pushing the envelope massively or anything like that, we just want the wrestling to feel like how it used to feel for the people who would play wrestling games back in the day. And just have fun with fellow wrestling fans, or, you know, people that just want to have fun with their buddies.”

“Maybe they don’t know who Luchasaurus is. Maybe they don’t know who Chris Jericho is. But, you know, they’ll be able to pick a character on the screen and go like, ‘oh, this guy is fun to play as’. That’s sort of the feeling that I want to, as sort of a creative designer, to bring that to video games.”
