With the help of WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, 2K has announced that they’re bringing a version of WWE 2K to mobile platforms this spring. The game is being developed by experienced mobile and handheld studio n-Space in conjunction with Visual Concepts, and it’ll retail for $7.99 on iOS and Android devices.
As you can see in the above screen, WWE 2K will feature one of the WWE’s brightest young phenoms and one of its most beloved elder statesmen. “The New Face of Fear” Bray Wyatt and the Undertaker will both appear in the game, with the duo ostensibly reprising their WrestleMania confrontation from this past Sunday. WWE 2K will include several of the current stars of the squared circle, including “Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose, Intercontinental Champion Daniel Bryan, new WWE Champion Seth Rollins, current U.S. Champion John Cena, and Roman Reigns—the man who went to “Suplex City” on Sunday against Brock Lesnar in a brutal WWE title bout. Players can also take on the role of former or semi-active superstars, including Hulk Hogan, Sting, and current WWE executive vice president, the “King of Kings” himself, Triple H.
For the Hulkster’s part, he was honest about his lack of knowledge about mobile games, but he said that’ll be changing now that he’s actually starring in one.
“I don’t play mobile games, but I will now,” Hogan promised. “Because WWE 2K is going to be available for mobile devices, I’m the first one that’s going to be on it, so I’m very excited about that.”
Hogan also spoke on the latest piece of downloadable content for WWE 2K15, “Path of the Warrior,” which follows the Ultimate Warrior’s meteoric rise in the late ’80s and early ’90s, starting with the WWE Hall of Famer’s shocking dismantling of the Honky Tonk Man at SummerSlam ’88 in 31 seconds to win the IC strap.
The mode also features such epic confrontations as the Warrior’s retirement match at WrestleMania VII with Randy “Macho King” Savage and his intense rivalry with the Undertaker—a feud that famously saw the Warrior seek advice on dealing with the dark side from none other than Jake Roberts…only to have “The Snake” ultimately turn on him in one of the most shocking segments from any now-grown wrestling fan’s childhood (as seen in the video below, if you’re still not scarred from perhaps the most diabolical heel turn in wrestling history).
Hogan complimented the Warrior for his stamina in finishing their epic champion-versus-champion, title-for-title clash at WrestleMania VI in Toronto, a key moment in “Path of the Warrior.”
“I could see the changing of the guard already in place. Before we even got in the ring, I could see the fans gravitating toward the Warrior’s charisma,” Hogan said. “I could see that he even one-upped me with the colors—I had the bright yellow, and he came in with the neon. He was in good shape, but I didn’t know if he could go the distance. I gained a lot of respect for him, and I was proud of him, because I knew someone would have to carry on the legacy for all the Hulkamaniacs. I was just hoping it would be someone who would be up for the challenge, and he definitely was.”
Hogan, of course, couldn’t let mention of the match go without one playful dig at the Warrior.
“It’s great, because nowadays, when I see people replaying the match in video games,” he joked, “I always win.”
