You can finally scan your face into WWE 2K16

More importantly, you can scan custom logos, too.

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

A companion app allowing players of WWE 2K16 to scan their faces into the game has launched for iOS and Android devices, about six weeks after it was supposed to arrive.

Originally meant to launch alongside WWE 2K16 on Oct. 27, the app also allows players to upload custom images to the game's servers for use in creating superstars, divas, arenas, championships and more.

The app can use a mobile device's camera or can upload an image stored to its library. Tools allow users to remove backgrounds or filter out portions of an image according to their color. The app requires a code generated by the game before anything can be uploaded. More details on how it works are here.

The WWE 2K series and its predecessor under THQ have had long histories of custom wrestler creation and support, and this app is meant to enhance that as WWE 2K16 either introduced new creation options or brought back old ones that weren't present in WWE 2K15. Custom Divas, for example, returned to this year's edition after an absence last year.

The game is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
