WWE 2K18 is getting is getting finger-lickin’ better. 2K Sports revealed Kentucky Fried Chicken’s iconic founder, Colonel Sanders, will be added to the playable roster in the upcoming WWE game.
In a new secret character reveal trailer, seen below, pro-wrestler Kurt Angle dons the white suit, black tie, and white hair to represent the KFC mascot’s triumphant entrance into the franchise. If that doesn’t sound enticing enough to watch, Angle also smacks Heath Slater in a chicken outfit with his cane. WWE’s partnership with KFC has previously had wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Dolph Ziggler also step into the Sanders persona.
According to 2K (via GameSpot), the Colonel can be used with WWE 2K18‘s Create-a-Superstar mode. Using the feature’s various customization options, like facial structure and clothing, it seems players can use the white suit and black spectacles to create their own take on Sanders.
While 2K only included a brief snipped of in-game footage in the trailer, fans can get an early look at the Colonel in action October 12th on wrestler Xavier Woods’ YouTube channel, UpUpDownDown. For even more ringside action, players that pre-order the game will receive Angle as a playable character. The game’s season pass will also be packed with five sets of DLC, including Accelerator, Enduring Icons, MyPlayer Kick Start, New Moves, and NXT Generations packs.
WWE 2K18 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 17th, with a Nintendo Switch version arriving in 2018.
