'WWE 2K18' Is Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Another fun milestone for WWE 2K18 is that it will mark WWE's return to Nintendo consoles. Today, 2K Games made the formal announcement on the title's YouTube channel that the game will come to the Nintendo Switch this fall, the first wrestling game on a Nintendo brand since 2012 when WWE '13 was released on the Wii.

Considering all the improvements the latest title is apparently going through, it only makes sense that both companies would make a strong effort to get themselves back on Nintendo consoles — especially since the Switch is still on track to be the biggest console in demand for the holiday season.

There was a combination of reasons and rumors as to why WWE stopped doing business with Nintendo, ranging from the idea that fighting games don't do well on their systems, to the former developers not being able to play nice with Nintendo, to being a cost effective measure not to develop a title for a system like the Wii U.

Looks like whatever problems there use to be are now nonexistent, and we'll be seeing a Switch version when the game is released on October 17th. For now, enjoy Seth Rollins playing with a Nintendo Switch.
