A lot of WWE fans have been wondering when they would be able to play WWE 2K18 wherever they want on the Nintendo Switch, since that version initially missed the release deadline back in October, when the other versions arrived. Well, good news – you’re about to have a GLORIOUS Christmas!
2K Sports confirmed on its official page today that WWE 2K18 will finally make its way to Nintendo’s consoles this week, both in digital and physical form. The game will arrive on December 6th, and will come with pre-order goodies, including two playable versions of WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle: his WWE “American Hero” persona (2001) and his ECW “Wrestling Machine” persona (2006). Those that order the digital version will be eligible for both of these skins through December 13th, free of charge.
Here’s a rundown of the game’s features:
The MyCAREER experience puts you on the path to greatness as you journey along on the road to WrestleMania. Explore WWE like never before through a free-roaming backstage, conversing with WWE Superstars, forming alliances, making enemies, seeking out quests, and strategizing for upcoming matches.
