The developers behind WWE 2K18 are really pushing it after the mixed reviews that WWE 2K17 had with lackluster updates to the franchise that stemmed from a lack of replayability.

Today Seth Rollins and WWE confirmed via a post to their website and a YouTube video that WWE 2K18 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch console.

WWE 2K18 for Nintendo Switch official announcement

The video above is the announcement of the upcoming video game for the Nintendo Switch, which was released earlier this year and has already seen major success for the company, with consoles consistently being sold out from store to store.

WWE also released their own comments about the WWE 2K18 video game being on the platform:

“It’s official: WWE 2K18 is coming to Nintendo Switch.

With a little help from WWE 2K18 cover Superstar Seth Rollins, WWE and 2K confirmed Monday that WWE fans everywhere will be able to test their grappling might this fall on Nintendo’s newest gaming console. WWE 2K18’s Switch debut marks the first time in five years that a new WWE video game will be available on a Nintendo platform. Thanks to Switch’s on-the-go capabilities, it will also be the first portable WWE video game available in six years.

Switch enthusiasts who choose to step into the WWE 2K18 ring can expect a flurry of new features in this year’s game.

WWE 2K18 Switch players will be able to compete with or against Superstars that will make up this year’s ever-growing roster of playable characters. Players will also get the chance to capitalize on accessing the WWE 2K18 Pre-Order Bonus of Kurt Angle, who is available to anyone who pre-orders 2K’s popular WWE video game for the Switch or other gaming consoles.”

Editor’s Note:

I am so excited for this game. I don’t yet have a Nintendo Switch but I intend on purchasing one for a variety of games either scheduled for the platform or already released. Having WWE on there adds much more incentive for me to purchase one closer to the release of 2K18.
