Check out 30 minutes of new AEW: Fight Forever gameplay
Hit the ropes with Orange Cassidy and Evil Uno with this new AEW: Fight Forever gameplay footage
Yesterday, YouTuber Bigrobowski shared a recent Twitch stream that showcases AEW superstars Orange Cassidy and Evil Uno playing AEW: Fight Forever.
The new footage kicks off with a match between Hikaru Shida and Thunder Roas for the AEW Women’s World Championship. The footage highlights the arcade-style gameplay with fast-paced action.
While much of the gameplay appears similar to the N64 wrestling games on the AKI Engine, there are notable stylistic differences. For instance, at one point, Hikaru Shida suplexes Thunder Rosa straight into the turnbuckle. In another match, we also learn that Orange Cassidy can wrestle with his hands in his pockets.

Another cool feature showcased in the new gameplay is the ability to manually fire off pyro during entrances. In addition, pressing different buttons also allow you to zoom in and out to change camera angles. There are also fun ways to interact with the environment outside the ring by performing special moves against the apron or throwing your opponent into the ring barricade.
Overall, all the gameplay shown off holds true to the overall vision of AEW: Fight Forever serving as an arcade-style alternative. Where WWE 2K23 prioritizes hyper-realism, AEW’s video game takes us back to the over-the-top N64 titles like No Mercy.
