WWE 2K18 Launching on Nintendo Switch in October

Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to another 2K sports game this fall. WWE 2K18 will be coming to the hybrid console on October 17th, 2017; the same date when the game will launch on the other platforms. This will be the first WWE game on a Nintendo console since WWE ’13, which was released on the Wii. Also, it will be the first portable wrestling game in the last six years.

WWE 2K18 Launching on Nintendo Switch in October

The release of WWE 2K18 for the Nintendo Switch has been officially confirmed. Interestingly, this will be the first WWE game to launch on a Nintendo platform in a good, long while. The last one was WWE ’13 way back on the Wii, a whole two generations ago. Also, according to the post announcing the game on the official WWE website, it will also be the first portable WWE game in the last six years.

Best of all, unlike FIFA 18, the Nintendo Switch Version of WWE 2K18 will be the full version of the game. If you need a reminder, the Switch version of the upcoming FIFA game will be inferior compared to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions. Specifically, it will be missing the second season of the FIFA Story Mode, called The Journey.

Anyway, that won’t happen with WWE 2K18. Switch players will get the full deal. It will include all the new features, including “matches featuring up to eight Superstars, a more expansive backstage area, new weight detection and grapple carry systems and much more.” The game will also have “a more immersive MyCareer experience and an all-new online Road to Glory mode that pits your custom Superstar against players around the world”, and more.

The Nintendo Switch version also got its own mini-trailer, with Seth Rollins (the guy on the game’s cover) telling us that he’s an avid gamer and how much he enjoys the Switch. You can check out the video down below.
