Yuke’s Show Off Darby Allin Gameplay & Model From Upcoming Console Game

Darby Allin

AEW Games gave fans a sneak preview of their much-anticipated video game and how it will look.

Game developer, Yukes provided the footage, which AEW Games posted online. The footage focuses on Darby Allin. A 360-degree sweep complete with close-ups to show the fan-favourite in more detail.

Some brief gameplay action follows the scan. The footage shows Allin executing his signature daredevil moves, such as a backflip dropkick and the Coffin Drop.

The game footage comes after an article in Forbes magazine took a dive into the promotion’s finances and showed just how much the company have put into the game.

The article revealed that the eight-figure investment into the game has kept AEW ‘in the red’.

The $43.75 million AEW received from TNT last year made up the largest share of its revenue, but that’s a rounding error compared to publicly traded WWE’s record $974 million in revenue in 2020. Still, AEW’s pay-per-view numbers and ticket sales are growing, and the new show will add to its coffers. Khan expects its wrestling division to be profitable this year, though an eight-figure investment in video game development will keep the company in the red for now.

AEW announced their video game projects in November of last year. Alongside the trailer for the console game, they announced two mobile games, AEW Casino: Double or Nothing and AEW Elite General Manager.
