Coming off a must-see Forbidden Door pay-per-view, fans want to know if any NJPW wrestlers are in AEW: Fight Forever.

Three years since its original announcement, AEW: Fight Forever finally drops on June 29. The game features arcade-style graphics throughout various match types, modes, and customization options. Players can even battle in online matches to become the new AEW World Tag Team Champions.

A fully stacked roster of AEW wrestlers is available to play at launch, including the brand's biggest stars, MJF, Jon Moxley, and Bryan Danielson. AEW often collaborates with other brands like New Japan Pro-Wrestling, so will any NJPW stars be featured in the video game?

NJPW wrestlers are not in AEW: Fight Forever. At launch, the game only features wrestlers from AEW, including both homegrown talent and former WWE stars. Even Cody Rhodes will be in the game, despite his return to WWE, due to his major contributions to the brand.

In an exclusive interview with SEScoops, AEW SVP Nik Sobic said, "We have a great relationship with New Japan. If we had unlimited time, we'd probably have both full rosters in our game." He goes on to share that anything is possible in the future if fans buy and love the game.

If the game gains popularity and has a successful debut, Will Ospreay and Kazuchika Okada would make great additions to AEW: Fight Forever.
