Hey all - I’ve seen in many threads here and on Reddit that the director has confirmed that Jay White, Shingo Takagi, and others will be added to the game’s roster in a future patch. However, I’ve done a lot of searching for the source of this info and have come up empty. Does anyone have a link to the source of this info, whether it be a tweet or a website? Thanks so much.
"3.14 not appearing in the new Japan Pro-wrestling Junior Heavyweight Hen released, Jay White Player, Takaki, Takahashi, and Henale players, while undecided on the delivery date, etc., wrestlers parts, techniques, since the production of data has started, We will announce it formally. Please wait till then."
It's essentially saying:
"Jay White, Takaki, (Yujiro) Takahashi, and Henale were not included in the Jr. DLC Update. Parts for these wrestlers will be included in an update to be announced at a later date."
Of course! They had been busy trying to get everything prepared for "The Vanishing" DLC, as well as (I am assuming) check for more bugs and getting the custom music for PS4 all ready (plus, some of the staff might be busy working on other games, too).
In related New Japan roster news, because Taichi beat Jeff Cobb, you can finally assign all the New Japan titles. Since the DLC was released there's always been at least one or two people not in the game that had a belt.
