If you've been waiting for your chance to step into the ring with WWE 2K18 on the Nintendo Switch, then you better start stretching. The game is set to launch on the platform super soon, as in tomorrow.
Surprise launches sure can be nice. A while back, 2K announced that the latest game in the WWE series would eventually be making its way to the Switch. The game has launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and a whole bunch of DLC has rolled out, but still no Switch launch date.
Well, that all changed on the WWE 2K blog today, with an announcement that the game can be in your hot little hands as early as tomorrow.
Sure, Wednesday is an odd day to launch a game, but we doubt anyone who has been awaiting WWE 2K18's arrival on the Switch is complaining. The launch is a worldwide affair, for both physical and digital copies of the game.
According to the post, the Switch version offers everything available on the other platforms.
The Nintendo Switch edition is a robust offering featuring the new grapple carry system, new weight detection, thousands of new animations, a massive backstage area, and up to six characters on screen at once. Play on TV or in handheld mode with up to four people in online and local multiplayer. All of the big modes are included as well.
Those modes include the MyCAREER mode and Road to Glory, as well as the bolstered customization options and the biggest roster in the series' history. You can also dive into the Universe mode, which basically lets you create your dream broadcasts for Raw, SmackDown Live and NXT.
If you pre-ordered the physical edition of WWE 2K18 on Switch, you'll also receive two playable versions of Kurt Angle. Went digital instead? Then you'll be able to download that same pack at no additional cost starting Dec. 13. Speaking of digital, that's the only way you can also grab the Digital Deluxe Edition, which boasts the Season Pass, Accelerator for leveling up more quickly, some special wrestler packs and more. While the standard version of the game is $59.99, that Deluxe Edition will set you back $89.99.
Of course, you could also grab all of the DLC piece meal. The original post lists all of those various packs and extra virtual swag, as well as prices.
One of the most helpful pieces of info, though, is how much space the game will take up on the microSD card. Yes, this is another game that simply won't fit on the Switch all by itself. You'll need a card with at least 32GB of space available to download WWE 2K18, as well as an extra gigabyte on the console itself. Remember, you can get all of these WWE 2K18 goodies starting tomorrow, December 6.
