WWE 2K18 is now confirmed as a Nintendo Switch launch, making it the first WWE video game on a Nintendo platform in five years.
Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the last WWE-licensed game on a Nintendo platform. It is WWE ‘13, which also published on the Wii.
A Switch launch was suspected for WWE 2K18 shortly after 2K Sports revealed its cover star in June (the dastardly Seth Rollins). GoNintendo spotted a listing for an Austrian retail chain showing its availability on Nintendo's newest console, but nothing was confirmed or commented on until now.
It's a welcome third-party development for Nintendo fans. Moreover, this will be a full version, with all of the features available on the Switch in versions on other platforms (such as the MyCareer and new Road to Glory multiplayer mode).
The Nintendo Switch is also getting FIFA 18 in September, and while we were impressed by its gameplay, that version will not have all of the features of its siblings on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, such as the story mode.
WWE 2K18 launches Oct. 17 PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game has been given a “Fall 2017” launch window for the Switch.
