He also retweeted some photos TAKA Michinoku took of Yoshinobu Kanemaru and El Desperado in costume for "a certain photo shoot in Tokyo." Which, given how late it'd be for BoSJ, I'm pretty sure is meant for something else...!

Milano's currently a commentator, so I don't think he'd be an active wrestler -- BUT! -- I think if they skinned the Tokyo/Spike Dome arena with NJPW logos and miscellany, they would probably make his sprite into one of the commentators at the table.

Plus I don't think Matsumoto would have retweeted that unless it was FP related. Looks like KES are the only Suzukigun members that haven't been tied to FPW at all, right?

Here's SHO and YOH with what appears to be at least a placeholder for the cover art for the PS4 version.

Lol their match sucked.

I really hope they feature the New Japan guys on the cover and make it really eye grabbing. This could sell really good just based off of the game box.

I cant tell if the black on SHO's kneepads are the camo or something new.

YOH has the black on his kickpads that may have been what Kenny had on his (was yellow on Kenny).

They may have the NJPW guys on the back of the cover, the front is usually reserved for the game/publisher branding.

I really wouldn't care if FIRE PRO was very small on the cover and it was all NJPW logo and wrestlers. Whatever can get sales.
At least the NJPW logo should be there right with the Fire Pro Logo.

It is, tho, as a "Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series" style sticker.

New parts on KUSHIDA’s shorts and boots. Wonder how they handle the different colors...

(Also looks like another new face which is odd since I thought the one we have is pretty perfect)

It looks like a lot of the NJ guys are gonna have new heads that look like some weird ass NBA Jam type digitizing went down.

SHO's kneepads are the Warrior A & B designs that are already in the game.
With YOH, it looks to me like his Kickpads have Shoelace B (white, the short boots) on top of Shoelace A (black, the tall boots)...possibly also on top of...Hero (black)?
So nope, doesn't look like new bits yet.

(...searches...)

AH, it's DesertPunk's SHO and YOH (YOH's face seems to have been changed in the interim though?):

I know it's not likely, but I'm hoping everyone in the game is getting unique new parts and edits we've seen without them such as YOH, SHO, and Honma, just haven't been completed yet.

More probable that they're making new parts for the most popular guys, and lower card talent is using older designs.

The Naito model has a Los Ingobernables logo on his shirt, so I'm fairly certain more edit parts are coming.

^I can't imagine that the new parts thing was ever in serious doubt but seeing is believing and that's cool to note

Now if only they'd confirm the inclusion of Victory Musashi.
