WWE 2K14’s launch trailer preys on your nostalgia for 30 years of Wrestlemania

2K Sport’s first WWE title has just launched across North America earlier this week and is set to launch across Europe sometime tomorrow. To celebrate/advertise to you 2K has released a trailer showing some pretty well rendered wrestlers of both the modern day and years gone passed. Check it out after the break.

I haven’t been following it closely, but the “30 Years of Wrestlemania” campaign seems like a clever hook for all of us who grew up watching it in the 80s and 90s but have perhaps lapsed over the last decade.

Also playing on that same nostalgia is “The Streak” mode, in which players make or break The Undertakers infamous 21 match winning streak. It’s interesting that the move to a new publisher has prompted such a nostalgic take on the man on man simulator.

WWE 2K14 released on Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 earlier this week across North America and will release later in the week across Europe.
