It was announced today via Twitter by SUDA 51 that his “direct teacher”, Masato Masuda, has passed away at the age of 48. Masuda is perhaps most famous for the Nintendo Entertainment System’s Pro Wrestling and for his Fire Pro Wrestling series that has been ongoing since 1989.
The creator of Fire Pro-wrestling, Masato Masuda, has passed away. He was 48 years old, still young. I genuinely pray for his happiness in the next world. He was one of the greatest creators of video games and he was my direct teacher. Thank you for giving us our favorite Fire Pro-wrestling. You are the god of it.
