Update On NJPW Video Game, Kazuchika Vs. Naito Full Match, Jay White, Wrestle Kingdom 12

- Above is the full match between Kazuchika Okada and Tetsuya Naito from April of 2016 at Invasion Attack. The two will meet in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 12 with Okada defending the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. We will have live coverage of the event late tonight (11 p.m. PT) / early Thursday morning (2 a.m. ET), depending on your time zone.

- As noted, NJPW had a "video game announcement" at yesterday's NJPW Fan Festa and that announcement was Pro Wrestling Fire would be coming to the PlayStation 4 and NJPW would be partnering up with the game to have their wrestlers officially in it. Kevin Kelly was at the event and announced the news. A few wrestlers, including KUSHIDA and Togi Makabe, did a quick tournament to show off their characters in the game. The PS4 version is expected to drop in the Summer, before the next NJPW G1 Climax.
