WWE 2K17: 13 Major New Details Triple H Just Revealed
13. The Collector's Edition Will Be NXT
Obviously the biggest part of the announcement is that there's a prestigious NXT Collector's Edition, which will be available for pre-order immediately (until they run out of stock) at the princely sum of $99.99.
They're limited, so getting in there early is going to be your best guarantee of buying one.
Though it's been a part of the franchise already in the past, this marks a serious step forward for NXT, and further indication that it should be considered a third brand, rather than just a development territory.
More than anything, inclusion in the game sounds like it validates NXT a little more for Triple H:
For me, um, you know, to sit back and I think, you know, you guys
in the media have talked about it a lot.
For me, this is... I feel like sometimes like a dad with NXT and watching
characters come through here and seeing stars that come in, um, with, uh,
either no level of skill, uh, at what we do or with an amazing level of skill
at what we do, but I watch them change from the time they walk through the door
to become something more. ...And then to get to a game like 2K17
that people play all over the globe and is such a massive part of what we do
and a massive part of making them huge globally recognized superstars - man,
it's awesome. I really can't express how
great that feels to watch them be able to do that and grow into something more."
