    "Nintendo fans have made it clear, they want WWE 2K games on their console of choice. And we’re happy to announce that we’re coming back!", or so says the announcement on the official WWE 2K website.

    Indeed, this marks the first time in five years that a WWE game has been on a Nintendo platform. The Nintendo Switch version features docked play on television and offers the first portable edition of a WWE game in six years.

    To celebrate the good news, WWE 2K18 cover Superstar Seth Rollins appeared in a special video announcing the series’ return to Nintendo platforms and debut on the Nintendo Switch:


    Like the other available versions of WWE 2K18, it includes a whole host of new features:


    WWE 2K18
    will release on Nintendo Switch this fall.

    Good to see the Switch is getting more third party suppose but Nintendo fans have made it clear they want WWE on Switch? Can't say I've ever seen anyone ask for it.

    Worth noting that the PS4 and Xbox versions are dated whereas the Switch version only says 'Fall 2017'.
    They even sent an updated PR highlighting that fact.

    I could've sworn I saw a Switch trailer that featured game footage of a WWE game, maybe it was 2K17, whatever the case, this isn't surprising. I haven't watched wrestling in almost 3 years, and the only wrestling game I really only played was WWF RAW for Sega Genesis. So, whatever with this, good news for people that wanted this I guess.

    I didn't ask for this.
    Nobody asked for this.
    I want a proper jRPG on Switch, not some sausages slamming each other.

    Probably it's rather bad, since this smells like an alibi game. 2K could port some games that Nintendo fans actually want on their Switch. Instead this gets ported over and I can already hear them say "It seems like Nintendo fans don't want our games on the Switch" if it sells poorly... which it will.

    It's pretty much what EA and Ubi did with the Wii U. Release bad ports too late and blame the console afterwards.

    So, this makes me rather furious than happy.

    I wanted a Nintendo wrestling game, not the wrestling game that exists on all consoles. They should of made a unique game for Nintendo like they used to years ago, PlayStation had smackdown and N64 had wm2000 and no mercy, much better games. Now it's the same crap smeared across 3 systems

    Never try any game of this franchise, im not really into wrestling. But since this one come to the Switch i will peobably give it a try. Now Konami, next year, bring to me MLB Power Pros 2017/2018 on the Switch...or at least the new chapter of Jikkyou Prowerfull Pro Yakyu on the Switch. Seriusly i think the Wii U and 3DS are the only Nintendo platform that have get not a single baseball game (no the MLB Nick thing dosen't count becouse is shit). It was a bit of a shame for me becouse the Wii and DS have some many that make my head spins.

    Beforse somebody ask i want a baseball game from Konami becouse Nintendo dosen't give a crap anymore. Rest in peperoni mario super sluggers series.

    I'm hyped as fuck. Hopefully it won't be glitchy and my MyCareer save data won't corrupt like 2K17 did on my XB1.

    I wouldn't mind playing this on the switch, if I had one.

    That said, I just hope 2k18 finally brings back the "create a storyline" mode that existed in 2k14 (the last on the 360/ps3) that's been absent since the current console generation. It was an unbelievably deep mode that enabled some great plotlines and being able to come up with some real creative booking.
