I am Austrian, and trust me, Libros staff is always great when it comes to this kind of stuff. This store is about office/school articles and they sell video games on the side, so their staff doesn't really know what they are doing. I wouldn't be surprised if this leak is real as well, typical from this store. I was able to buy FIFA 17 last year and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe almost a full week before launch because of this.

The last WWE game released for a Nintendo console was WWE '13 for the Wii. The Wii U did not see a single WWE title.

For some reason I think it's just an assumption and not actually happening. That quote of confidence though.

I would probably buy it for the Switch if it did though.

Calling bullshit. How's Switch supposed to handle that cutting edge game engine they use?

I would absolutely buy this on switch

Considering it's not a graphical powerhouse it's a good fit for the system.

My fear is that they just port over the PS3 version.

I will considering going Xbox One or PS4 for custom soundtracks if they make them available.

I haven't played a portable wrestling game since PSP, so it'll be great to have that chance again.

Oh god, flashbacks of Smackdown VS Raw 2006's loading times. :(

OT: As long as it's of comparable quality I'll happily get this. Create a Wrestler mode was always a guilty pleasure of mine. :)

2k17 was barely stable at 30fps on the regular PS4, in not too confident in the performance of NBA or WWE on the switch but being able to play both portably is probably gonna make these games day 1 purchases for me.

This.

Yukes are the masters of coding to the metal, the ps4 and xbone creak under the MASSIVE STRAIN of pushing out the amazing graphics and animation and ai logic that the wizards of yukes somehow created. The switch would MELT trying to show even one facet of their brilliance.

YES YES YES

I've wanted this since the moment I knew Switch was a hybrid. Day one.

It would make sense, but I'm honestly not expecting it. At least not this year but it's always nice to be pleasantly surprised.
