Not all that surprising
Publisher 2K Games has officially confirmed that WWE 2K19 will not be releasing on Nintendo Switch. After a pretty dreadful launch for the 2018 edition of the game on Nintendo's console, which was affected by a whole host of technical issues across the board, it appears that 2K has decided to avoid any further bad press by...
No mention of a Nintendo version so far
2K Games has just announced WWE 2K19 to the surprise of absolutely nobody, but the lack of a Switch edition in the press release has raised some eyebrows. The 2018 version was released on Switch after the other editions, and hit store shelves in a pretty dire state. Technical problems were everywhere and...
Stores apparently getting stock any day now, but still no release date
Nope, it doesn't look quite like that, although we kinda wish it did. It looks more like this: EDIT: The video has been removed. Boo. We still don't have a release date for WWE 2K18 on Switch, but YouTube user Gruby Nerd has apparently managed to get his hands on a...
"Switch release date is coming soon"
WWE 2K18 may be out on other systems, but Switch owners are still waiting for a solid release date, and the lack of a confirmed day has led some to speculate that the game may even slip into 2018. To add to this confusion, Amazon has been contacting those who have preordered the game in the UK with some rather...
Not so long ago we reported on the news that the eShop version of WWE 2K18 - which still doesn't have a solid release date, amazingly - would require 32GB of storage space, making a MicroSD card a necessity. Those of you expecting the physical version to be a different story are going to be disappointed, as it has been...
Icy-Tea and Scoopy Scoopy Dog Dog?
WWE 2K18 is on its way to Switch - as well as other systems, which will annoyingly get it earlier - and to create even more anticipation, publisher 2K Games has released a new TV spot which shows off the lyrical talents of one Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., better known to the music world as Snoop Dogg...
2K Sports pins down some details
Earlier today there was the pleasing news that, for the first-time in many years, there'll be an official WWE game on Nintendo hardware. With WWE 2K18 coming to the system, plenty naturally wonder how feature-rich the Switch version will be. 2K Sports has now updated its website with details, and on the surface...
A long awaited return to Nintendo hardware
It's been churning around the rumour mill for a while, and a European retail listing gave some more hope, but now we know that WWE 2K18 is definitely coming to Nintendo Switch. Nintendo UK posted the following video with the news, which also confirms a pre-order bonus character of Kurt Angle. The...
Oof! Right in the breadbasket
Austrian retail outlet Libro has triggered speculation that WWE 2K18 could be headed to the Switch by posting a placeholder listing for the game, then promptly removing it. The listing was spotted over at Reddit, where it was speculated that Libro - a chain which sells video games as well as many other...
No luchador Pikachu here
We've already reported on the fact that Pokémon GO has reached the level of awareness that permits it a mention during a WWE broadcast, and now the popular app is making its presence felt once more, this time to the detriment of one of the organisation's tag teams, The Shining Stars. During the team's match against Enzo...
Xavier Woods drops the P-Bomb (and we don't mean Power)
We recently reported on the fact that Pokémon GO has reached the level of awareness that it's being parodied by The Simpsons, and today we've got another example of the app's power to penetrate the consciousness of the mainstream media. In short, it got a mention during a WWE broadcast, which...
From WWE to Ultimate Muscle, and Beyond
Ah, wrestling… one of our oldest guilty pleasures. That peculiar sport / reality show / soap opera is filled with ups and downs and this pattern is somewhat mirrored by its video game counterparts. After dusting off the trusty GameCube and taking a look at the extensive number of wrestling games of its...
We're tapping in, not out.
The thought of a modern pro wrestling game these days is often coupled with an eye-roller. They've become as iterative as most sports games released on an annual basis - such as FIFA and Madden - but certainly have far less to offer than the examples just mentioned. What we're left with is a game that's ever-so-slightly...
WWE is big business, with millions of loyal fans and typically impressive sales of pay-per-views, merchandise and, of course, video games. We're pretty confident we'll never see a Hyrule Warriors-style mashup between the franchises, however, as it doesn't take much imagination to realise that it would be a bit weird. Yet still, that's...
A low blow
Back in February Take-Two snapped up the WWE license after the demise of THQ and duly filed it under its 2K brand of sports titles. During its financial briefing, 2K Sports announced a 29th October release date for WWE 2K14 in North America, though unfortunately it won't be showing up on Wii U as Eurogamer has been informed it's only...
Grappling with a new publisher
Back in January, the unfortunate demise of THQ became complete as several developers swooped in to purchase its assets at auction. As a result Relic, the developer of Company of Heroes, is now owned by SEGA, THQ Montreal is under Ubisoft's wing and Volition, the studio behind the Saint's Row franchise, has become a...
