The third party support for the Nintendo Switch continues to build with the announcement of WWE 2K18! The WWE franchise has been absent from Nintendo platforms since the release of WWE 13' back in 2012. In that time, we saw the license of the franchise switch hands from THQ to 2K Games. While it is still unknown if the Switch version of WWE 2K18 will include every feature found on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions of the game, 2K has made it clear that the game is still going to be packed!
Get ready for eight man matches, a new grapple carry system, new weight detection, thousands of new animations and a massive backstage area. A brand-new rendering engine also gives WWE 2K18 a visual overhaul and will bring the drama of WWE to life like never before.
A new MyCareer experience puts you on the path to greatness as you journey along on the road to WrestleMania. Explore WWE like never before through free-roaming backstage, conversing with WWE Superstars, forming alliances, making enemies, seeking out quests, and strategizing for upcoming matches.

As a WWE fan, I like to pick up the games every few years, and now that there is a Switch version, this might just be my upgrade year! Are any of you other WWE fans excited for the Switch version? Or do you plan to pick it up on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One instead? WWE 2K18 will be available on each of those consoles this October.
