One of WWE’s hallmark events in Summerslam is right around the corner and with it ramps up the 2K marketing machine! Today however it was Triple H releasing information about the upcoming title in somewhat fitting fashion as the major announcement involves his brain child, NXT.
This years Collector’s Edition will focus around the WWE Network’s hallmark brand NXT and with that comes it’s roster. We were already treated to this likes of Finn Balor and Samoa Joe (via DLC) in 2k16 but the big question this year was whether or not Shinsuke Nakamura would be included or was he too late in joining the WWE to make the cut? Well fear not Strong style enthusiasts as the King is indeed headed our way alongside Apollo Crews and Nia Jax. It seems however that at least Nakamura will be an Collector’s Edition exclusive at launch.
There are obviously a lot more characters that we are wanting to see and although not confirmed, Bayley, Asuka, Alexa Bliss and the Revival all feature on the collectors edition box art however when asked about the 4 Horse Women that were controversially missing last time around, Triple H passed the buck to 2K and simply said stay tuned! It has got to be a certainty that they are in this time around….right?!
Back to the Collector’s Edition! It is priced at $99 which can only mean one thing….that’s right, 2k17 is getting a statue and who better the represent what NXT has stood for than the longest reigning NXT champion and Icon of NXT, Finn Balor in his signature Demon paint.
