WWE 2K18 has been confirmed for Switch. This year's cover Superstar Seth Rollins appeared in a special video announcing the news. This will be the first WWE game in five years to be available for a Nintendo platform.

WWE 2K18 has just been confirmed for Switch. The game will be coming out for the new console sometime this fall. When WWE 2K18 does come out for Switch, it will mark the first time in five years that a WWE game was available for 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.

Similar to other versions of WWE 2K18, the one headed to Switch will be decked out with a bevy of new features. Some of those new features include "eight man matches, a new grapple carry system, new weight detection, thousands of new animations and a massive backstage area".

The game has also been visually overhauled thanks to a brand-new rendering engine in order to "bring the drama of WWE to life like never before".

There's also going to be a new MyCareer experience that "puts you on the path to greatness as you journey along on the road to WrestleMania". This will involve you roaming free around the backstage, making friends (or enemies) with the scantily clad mountains of muscle that are WWE Superstars, seeking out quests, and strategizing for your upcoming matches.

Also there's an all new Road to Glory: "Compete with opponents online to improve your MyPlayer by earning unlockables, boosts and upgrades all while securing your entry into special events that are held alongside real-life WWE special events, such as pay-per-views".

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