    Last time there was a WWE game on Wii (also PSP) it wasn't a port of the PS360 version, it was a crummy conversion of the outdated PS2 engine, just with updated rosters.

    Much better would have been the new Firepro. Not pushing the hardware can be beneficial if you bring over some games that don't need hardware to push.

    Too violent? should have just made it like now PG WWE.

    Am I the only one who wanted this? I love the WWE games lately, and im almost positive that This will be close enough but different enough for me to own this one and a Xbox One version... I don't see the downside at all. Same time, people in general should be happy that a company like 2K is starting to bring over more games to Switch. If Madden and NBA Live come over it would be amazing, even more amazing imo if EA didnt bring Madden, but expanded its NFL Blitz and NBA Jam on Switch. I like NBA Playgrounds, but in all honesty, it wouldn't sell if there was a NBA Jam on Switch...

    Have you played the 2k wwe titles? With 2016 they dropped the smackdown play style and bought back the N64 style of play. It was one of the 2k16's highlighted selling points. While the 2k games do have the pro mode or whatever it's called from smackdown, the controls of them are nearly dead-on upgrades of the N64 titles. My problem with WWE games, they are released yearly like real pro sports titles, when infact neither need yearly releases. An update pack for 20-30 maybe. Even then a new sports and wwe only really needs a every 3-4 year release.

    Don`t need much computing power to make a good wrestling game.

    Played the last 2 iterations and imho McMahon should just ditch these guys and give the franchise back to whoever developed WRESTLEMANIA THE ARCADE GAME.

    There's still a chance that 'Fire Pro Wrestling World' can be ported to the Switch. It's on Early Access on Steam right now and worth a look if you're a wrestling game fan.

    While some may not like it. It's great to see more games come to the switch, more support means less chance of fizzling out.

    It looks horrible with visuals that look like water paint.

    I did play 2K16 and didn't notice the play style being like the n64 titles. I skipped 2k17 (first year not buying the game since 1999) because it had no career mode and tons of match types removed, so in future they can add it like it's new when it was already there

    It's always been this art style. It's been this way for decades and has a huge fan base. Try it on steam. You might be surprised how fun it is. Don't judge it on graphics, because that's not why the series survived this long, since it first came to SNES.

    No other wrestling game has continuously mixed all major factions from USA and Japan, along with MMA fighters under one roof.
