Subscribe To WWE 2K18's Special Edition Knows Not Everybody Likes John Cena Updates
Few wrestlers have reached the cultural icon status enjoyed by John Cena over the course of his 15-year career with the WWE. Still, not everybody is a fan of the guy, which is highlighted in the trailer for the WWE 2K18 Cena (Nuff) Edition, a special edition of the game that boasts a whole bunch of extra goodies both physical and digital.
Set to release on Oct. 17 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and, more recently announced, Nintendo Switch, WWE 2K18 is the latest annual offering from 2K boasting everything a wrestling fan could ever want out of a video game. It's going to have a huge roster, oodles of play modes, arenas aplenty and much, much more.
But for those of you who really like John Cena, there's a special edition of the game that keeps fans of the electrifying superstar in mind. Honestly, we're a little confused by the marketing here. The name of this special edition is Cena (Nuff), which implies it is designed for folks who have indeed "seen enough" of the edition's namesake. Heck, even the trailer for the special edition makes it sound like they're keeping non-Cena fans in mind.
Despite all of that, the Cena (Nuff) Edition is packed with a whole bunch of extra content, as well as a John Cena action figure and a commemorative, signed plaque that also includes a piece of the mat where Cena won one of his major titles. Based on the edition's name and marketing, you'd think they're trying to get folks who don't like Cena to pony up some extra cash in order to get their hands on a bunch of memorabilia and then, I don't know, light it all on fire?
Anyway, they're making 30,000 copies of this version of the game, so we imagine those pieces of the mat are going to be super tiny. Also, it's going to set you back $149.99, which is quite a bit more than the standard edition of the game.
Here's what you can get for all of that extra cash:
*A copy of the WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition video game, which includes the WWE 2K18 Season Pass digital content (details announced this fall)
*Playable WWE Legends and John Cena Rivals: Batista and Rob Van Dam
*Playable John Cena Characters: ECW One Night Stand (2006) and WrestleMania 26 (2010)
*Kurt Angle Pack: Access to WWE "American Hero" (2001) and ECW "Wrestling Machine" (2006) playable characters
*Exclusive premium packaging, including a unique cover sleeve
*Exclusive Mattel John Cena / Cena Nuff action figure featuring Cena and Cena (Nuff) T-shirt options
*Fanatics Limited Edition Commemorative Plaque with a piece of the ring mat from his 16th WWE Championship at Royal Rumble earlier this year, as well as a hand-signed photo from John Cena
*WWE SuperCard limited edition in-game cards featuring John Cena, Batista and Rob Van Dam, as well as a Cena (Nuff) card back.
