100% of Proceeds Pays Paralyzed Puroresu Performer

A new piece of Fire Pro Wrestling World DLC has been released, and this one has a special mission: the proceeds are benefitting a paralyzed professional wrestler.

If you're unfamiliar with Fire Pro Wrestling World, it's an old-school sort of wrestling game with graphics well familiar to fans of the 16-bit era of gaming. It's been revived and brought to PC and PS4 in recent years, and now the developers are releasing some DLC to help out a puroresu star in need.

The "Yoshihiro Takayama Charity DLC" contains the following goodies:

  • Custom Ring - TAKAYAMANIA-EMPIRE
  • Custom Ring - TAKAYAMANIA
  • Promotion/Stable Logo - TAKAYAMANIA
  • Wrestler Edit Parts - Chest (Four T-shirt logos)

This particular piece of DLC is benefitting Yoshihiro Takayama, a Japanese professional wrestler and MMA fighter who competed for 25 years. Mr. Takayama's career came to an unfortunate end when he was paralyzed from the neck down during a match; his close friend Minoru Suzuki subsequently set up the "Takayamania" foundation to help support their medical costs.

 
 

Spike Chunsoft has similarly decided to chip in with the creation of this DLC. While Steam or the PlayStation Store will still take their cuts, 100% of Spike Chunsoft's proceeds will be directly donated to Takayamania according to a press release. The previous piece of charity DLC raised ¥3,840,000 (≈$35,107).
