WWE 2K17 NXT Edition featuring Shinsuke Nakamura announced! YEAOH!
2K Games has just unveiled the WWE 2K17 NXT Edition package, featuring items currently associated with arguably WWE’s hottest product, WWE NXT.
It’s no secret that WWE NXT has become a bit of a gold mine for WWE in recent memory, aiding in the boost of subscriber numbers for the WWE Network, and boosting the main roster too. Former WWE Champion Seth Rollins was the first NXT Champion, while current WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte was a former NXT Women’s Champion as well. Current US Champ Rusev, Dana Brooke, Paige, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Tyler Breeze, The Vaudevillains and Enzo and Big Cass all were products of WWE NXT.
In fact, WWE NXT has been seen as the current hotspot for independent wrestlers wanting to score a gig with the WWE. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens both made pitstops at NXT before ultimately arriving in the main roster, as do Neville, Kalisto and Apollo Crews. Currently, WWE NXT boasts of talent that’s pretty much equivalent to the main roster, boasting the likes of current NXT champion Samoa Joe, current NXT Women’s Champion Asuka, current NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival, Shinsuke Nakamura, Austin Aries, Finn Balor, Bobby Roode, American Alpha, Johnny Gargano, Tomasso Ciampa and many more.
Due to all of that, it’s no surprise that 2K games have decided to have their collector’s edition version for WWE 2K17 revolve around NXT. The WWE 2K17 NXT Edition collector’s package consists of the following:
- A copy of the WWE 2K17 video game in exclusive packaging
- NXT Enhancement Pack, which includes playable NXT Superstars Shinsuke Nakamura, Nia Jax and Apollo Crews and a 50% points boost when at NXT in MyCareer mode
