A ‘proper’ simulation WWE wrestling game is on the way from 2K.
Called WWE 2K, the iOS and Android will as you’d expect feature a recognisable roster of both current brawlers and faces from the past, with Hulk Hogan and Sting named. The publisher reckons the title looks to offer authentic WWE gameplay in a mobile format through inspiration from several popular gameplay elements and modes from the WWE 2K flagship WWE video game franchise available on consoles”.
Perhaps most notably the game will also feature online multiplayer, while players will also be able to create their own fighters.
WWE 2K marks a great milestone in 2K’s partnership with WWE, as we bring the first authentic WWE simulation experience to market for mobile devices,” Visual Concepts president Greg Thomas, said. WWE gaming enthusiasts will soon experience WWE action and several fan-favorite modes inspired by the WWE 2K flagship console series in an engaging new way.”
The game will be out this spring priced at $7.99 in the US.
Last year 2K and WWE released a wrestling-themed digital card game which, as of August, had been downloaded 1.5m times.
