Sumie Sakai Brings the Women of Honor Title to the ROH Game!

The history of women’s wrestling in Ring of Honor begins and ends with Sumie Sakai…literally!  Back in 2002 Sakai was victorious in the first-ever women’s match in ROH.  Now in 2018, she won the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor champion.  “Women of Honor’s Ray of Sunshine” has built a solid reputation as one of the best women’s wrestlers in the world over her 20 year career.  It was based on that reputation that Ring of Honor made her a cornerstone of the Women of Honor division when it was relaunched in 2015.

Sumie Sakai will join Brian Milonas and six other wrestlers in the Death Before Dishonor 8-pack.  The Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack will be available this December along with the other Filsinger Games holiday releases from Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 23rd.

It’s time for the return of BISHOP HELL, one of the most infamous villains in Champions of the Galaxy history.

BISHOP HELL debuted in 1988 in INVASION 2088 and took his rightful spot in the pantheon of dark GWF villains, joining forces with none other than Thantos! They were a formidable team and gave Star Warrior and the hero side many nightmares.

He might also be one of the greatest tag team wrestlers of all time, winning titles in multiple territories with a variety of partners.  Heels beware!

Red Bastien is part the latest expansion set that will feature new wrestlers as wells as some remakes of classic characters from the black and white Legends games.  Keep watching over the coming weeks as we announce the names in this anticipated game edition to be released this holiday season!

First Appearance of AniMen Team Featured in INVASION 2088!

Battering Ram. Incredible Badger. Reptillo.

They are legends all and they’ll get new game cards courtesy of Werner Mueck this December!

INVASION 2088 is the first expansion in the CHAMPIONS OF THE GALAXY game mythology and was originally released in 1988. Which makes this release a 30th anniversary spectacular! INVASION 2088 also marked the beginning of the classic AniMen vs Gladiators feud, which still rages on in KINGDOM COME 2134.

Finally, after 30 years, INVASION 2088 gets the full-color game treatment it deserves! This will be a big part of your CHAMPIONS OF THE GALAXY collection. Watch for more card art coming soon!

 

The Kingpin Joins the Ring of Honor Game Roster!

The first man to be announced for the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack is perhaps the biggest man to be part of the Ring of Honor roster, “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas.  Standing 6′ 4″ and weighing in close to 400 lbs. Milonas is an intimidating sight, but what may be more impressive is the unexpected agility and explosiveness he demonstrates in the ring.

Milonas is an over 15 year veteran of the New England independent scene.  He got his big opportunity to enter Ring of Honor as part of the 2017 Top Prospect tournament, where he made it to the semifinals.  Later in the year he had a match with the Beer City Bruiser and impressed him enough to form a tag team partnership.  Any tag team set to go up against these two are certainly in for a rough night!

The Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack will be available this December along with the other Filsinger Games holiday releases from Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 23rd.

Q3 Promoter Prime Legends Cards…The British Are Coming!

    

Legends of Wrestling fans, get ready because the British are Coming!  That’s right, on the heels the Best of the UK set bringing some of the current day British stars to our Indie line, now Promoter Prime is bringing in 3 of the top British wrestlers from the past to the color Legends game.

First off is the man synonymous with the term Legend of British wrestling, Johnny Saint.  Saint debuted in the 1950’s and had a unique fighting style of scientific holds and defensive maneuvers that made him a perfect fit for the World of Sport television show that he was a huge star on.

Next up is a man that has more world wide TV recognition, Dave Taylor.  Taylor possessed a repertoire of both power moves and technical wrestling holds that made him a formidable opponent during his heyday of the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Finally, the third man in this quarter’s release is one of the most requested color Legends cards, and for good reason as he is one of the most colorful men in the history of wrestling…”Exotic” Adrian Street!  The flamboyant Street was one of the most nefarious villains in both England and the southern United States.

Promoter Prime cards for Q3 will begin mailing shortly to all subscribers.  To begin your subscription and and get all the cards we have released this year check out the Promoter Prime page in the Filsinger Games Store.
