WWE 2K18 Nintendo Switch Release Date Announced, And It's Very Soon

The wrestling game arrives on December 6.


2K Sports has announced a release date for the Nintendo Switch version of WWE 2K18. While the wrestling game has been available on other platforms since October, it will finally arrive on Nintendo's hybrid console this week, on December 6.

The Switch edition of WWE 2K18 includes all of the major features and content found in other versions of the title, including the revamped MyCareer mode, expanded character creator, and DLC lineup. Unlike other versions, however, the Switch game will only support six characters on screen at once, rather than eight.

Those who pre-ordered the physical version of WWE 2K18 will get a Kurt Angle DLC pack featuring two versions of the WWE Hall of Famer as a free bonus. Switch owners who opt to purchase the game digitally from the Eshop will be able to download the character pack for free through December 13. However, you'll need a microSD card with 32 GB of space--as well as 1 GB of space on your console--in order to download the title.

WWE 2K18 is the first WWE game to release for a Nintendo console in five years. The title is already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In GameSpot's WWE 2K18 review, critic Richard Wakeling said "there are moments of pure pro wrestling enjoyment to be found" in the game, but criticized it for being "compounded by too many frustrating issues, disruptive glitches, and a dearth of engaging single-player modes."
