WWE superstars are used to throwing down in the ring, but now they are putting their skills to the test in a whole new way, courtesy of a new crossover with The King of Fighters Allstar. Netmarble Corps' hit game is bringing in some of your favorite WWE superstars, including Becky Lynch, Undertaker, The Rock, John Cena, Kofi Kingston, and Seth Rollins, who will each have their trademark mannerisms and move-sets. You'll be able to get different versions of The Rock and Kofi Kingston for free as long as you download the game through Wednesday, June 3rd, though the others will need to be unlocked, and you can check out all of the characters available in the image below.
"WWE and The King of Fighters have been entertaining people around the world for decades, so this is something truly special for us and the players," said Shin Hwa Cho, Executive Producer of Netmarble. "We worked closely with WWE to provide a truly authentic experience, bringing the likeness and moves of each Superstar to our game. We know our players are going to love the experience."
"Partnering with an industry leader like Netmarble Corp. and bringing together two iconic brands made this collaboration a natural fit," said Brian Flinn, WWE Chief Marketing & Communications Officer. "Integrating WWE Superstars into THE KING OF FIGHTERS ALLSTAR franchise will provide our fans with another opportunity to connect with their favorite Superstars and introduce new audiences to our action-packed entertainment."
