In the piece, screenwriter Yuichiro Takeda talks about how the story’s creation was a joint effort from himself, Kazuho Hyodo, and director Tetsuya Takahashi.

Switch version of WWE 2K18 out in the wild, first footage
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 27 Comments | 0 Likes
We don’t have to remind you that 2K’s handling of WWE 2K18 on Switch has been incredibly odd. Since the initial announcement awhile back, we’ve barely heard a peep about the game. Other than 2K saying last week that news would be coming soon, that’s all we’ve really seen.
The latest development is a strange one. Apparently WWE 2K18 is already available for purchase on Switch in some European shops despite 2K still not committing to a firm release date. At this point we have no idea what’s going on, but it seems as though the official launch isn’t too far off.
