While WWE 2K18 was announced for the Nintendo Switch back in July, 2K had been hesitant to give any information or gameplay footage of the game through the entire back half of the year. Suddenly, a release date of December 6, two days from now, has been announced for both physical and digital versions of the game.
Preorders for the physical edition will get the Kurt Angle DLC, while all eShop purchases until December 13 will receive it. 2K warns that a microSD card with a minimum 32GB of free space is required to download the eShop version, but did not clarify how much free space physical owners would need for the extra content. The boxart simply says that a microSD is required.

The hesitancy to show footage of the game, plus the out-of-nowhere surprise release, does not indicate a ton of confidence in this game. We’ll just have to wait and see, I suppose – it is not like it is a particularly long wait.
