Fans of wrestling will likely be excited with the announcement that Shinsuke Nakamura will be in this year’s game despite making his WWE debut at this year’s NXT: Takeover Dallas. In previous years the WWE titles have had a spotty track record including superstars that debut in the same year as the game. We saw some backlash last year when WWE 2K16 did not include most of the newer women wrestlers due to timing. So this is sure to make fans happy though his inclusion being tied to an “enhancement” pack will likely bother some people.

 

WWE 2K17 is set to release on October 11th for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
