RIP Masato Masuda (1966-2014)

As Wrestlemania XXX nears (and it will be on at the same time as Cosmos and Game of Thrones... Sunday TV overload imminent!) I would like to say a few words for the producer of the "Fire Pro Wrestling" series who passed away at age 48 a few days ago.

Illustration for article titled RIP Masato Masuda (1966-2014)

Thank you! That is all I have to say, your games all the way from the NES "Pro Wrestling" were always a ton of fun to play especially with friends. You don't even have to enjoy real life wrestling to lose yourself in the stunning create-a-character mode that came standard with latest entries in the series and have lot of fun following a career with your virtual self in the world of FPW. In his memory, I leave you with a 4 way, no disqualification free for all match from one of my favourite entries in the series, 1996 Human's "Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium" for Super Nintendo. Tonight it's Shiryu vs "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan vs "Macho Man" Randy Savage (RIP) vs Bret "The Hitman" Hart! Let's get ready to ruuuuuuuuuuumbleeeeeeeee!

To his family and friends I extend my sincerest condolences. Anyone out here fan of the series? Share your memories in the comments below.
