An All Elite Wrestling console video game has been in the works for some time now, but now fans anxiously awaiting information have some real footage of the game to check out.

AEW superstar Kenny Omega showcased footage of the game in a recent tweet from the AEW Games Twitter account. The quick peek included some artwork for superstar Darby Allin’s character model as well as some actual gameplay footage. The footage itself is pretty barebones, showcasing Allin’s character throwing a couple of kicks and punches against a green dummy character before hitting his signature Coffin Drop finishing maneuver. However, the information is sure to get fans excited for what’s to come.
Initially announced late last year, the AEW console game will attempt to recreate the feel of actual All Elite Wrestling events, and give fans the ability to play out some of their favorite scenarios in the process. Not too much else is known about the game at the moment (including its release date), but All Elite Wrestling is investing pretty heavily into the AEW Games division, according to Forbes. Fans have been clamoring for a way to play as some of their favorite superstars for some time now, and it looks as if AEW and developer Yuke’s are making some progress in development.
