The WWE 2K games, although wildly popular with Xbox, Playstation and Windows players, are almost new to the world of Nintendo. Nintendo loyalists got their first taste of the WWE 2K games with 2K17 on WiiU, but with the booming sales of the Nintendo Switch, Hyrul warriors and cart drivers across the world are about to jump into the ring and raise Hell with Kane, chug a beer with Steve Austin or suck with John Cena.
Every fandom is represented in the massive roster of playable wrestlers. Older fans will love the inclusion of Earthquake, Jim The Anvil Neidhart, Larry Zbysko and Dusty Rhodes. Not to mention The Big Boss Man, Kevin Von Erich, Bam Bam Bigelow and Andre the Giant.
Fans who want more of a push for their favorite wrestlers than they’ve been getting can win the Universal Title with Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper or Sami Zayn.
The women’s division will be well represented with Bayley, Sasha Banks, Brie and Nikki Bella, and Lita.
The massive newly released list also includes Goldberg, Brutus Beefcake, Greg Valentine, Edge, The Godfather, Eddie Guerrero, Daniel Bryan, Maryse, Naomi, Naomi, Ivory, Natalya, Mickie James, Becky Lynch, Tamina, Kerry Von Erich, The Usos, Mojo Rawley, Zack Ryder, Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, The Miz, Roman Reigns, The Rock, Randy Orton, Triple H, Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
