2K Sports updated its announcement page for WWE 2K18 on Switch with an interesting note. It now states, “The Nintendo Switch version of WWE 2K18 will support 6 characters onscreen at once.” Reader Mike tells us that other versions of WWE 2K18 will feature eight characters on-screen at once.

It’s unclear if WWE 2K18 will differ on Switch in any other way. 2K Sports has promised the inclusion of new features, the MyPlayer mode, and the new Custom Match option.

Update: Many more WWE superstars added in below.

Original: 2K Sports is kicking off the first wave of reveals today for the WWE 2K18 roster. Over a dozen new participants have been confirmed thus far.

When WWE 2K18 releases on Switch this fall, it will only be sold as a regular title. 2K Sports unveiled a collector’s edition for the game today, but it does not appear to be planned for the console. The announcement specifically mentions that it “will be available exclusively for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.”

2K previously announced a Deluxe Edition for WWE 2K18 as well. As far as we know, this will also not be offered on Switch.

The way 2K is handling WWE on Switch comes in contrast to NBA 2K18. With the latter game, Switch is receiving all versions, including both Legend Editions.


A recent tweet confirmed that WWE 2K18 will be getting a collector’s edition and we will be receiving more info about it Thursday. From just the image itself we can see that the collector’s edition will have everything the deluxe version plus some physical goodies. If you are big into WWE you might want to keep an eye on it.

NBA 2K18 won’t be the only game from 2K Sports on Switch this year. A few days ago, the publisher confirmed plans to bring WWE 2K18 to the platform.

Originally, 2K Sports said that the game would be available on October 17 alongside other systems. But unfortunately, a new “Fall 2017” release window has been given. If there is a delay, hopefully WWE will follow on Switch soon after the initial launch.


2K Sports has a new trailer up for WWE 2K18 to promote the game’s pre-order bonus, which will let you play as two versions of Kurt Angle. You can check it out below.

2K Sports appears to be taking the Switch version of WWE 2K18 seriously. When a fan claimed that the game would likely be based off an older release in the franchise from the Xbox 360, the official WWE 2K Twitter account noted that it’s “not based on previous gen versions”.

The tweet reads:

MyCareer is in, which “puts you on the path to greatness as you journey along on the road to WrestleMania.” Also new is Road to Glory that has you battling opponents online to improve your MyPlayer with unlockables, boosts and upgrades while also attempting to secure a spot in special events held alongside real-life WWE special events, such as pay-per-views. Customizing matches will be possible with deeper tools, and a robust Creation Suite “offers even more detailed features for Create-a-Superstar, Create-a-Video and Create-an-Arena.”
