Gamepur - WWE 2K18 announcements was very well received by critics and fans. However, it was short-lived once it was revealed that Switch version of WWE 2K18 will support just 6 characters onscreen at once (2 short of what the game supports on Xbox One, PS4, and PC). what are the other features that are Either MISSING or have been cut a bit from Nintendo Switch version of WWE 2K18? [Questions Asked by a Readers]

Gamepur - The last WWE game that was released on a Nintendo platform was WWE 13 (the last WWE game published by THQ), what took 2K Sports this long to support a Nintendo platform

Gamepur - 5 - Last but not the least Roster size - you guys have been living up to the fans expectations on roster size every year. Last year's game roster size was 156 SuperStars (including DLC), what the roster size is going to be for this year's game - crossing 200 marks?
2K Sports - WWE 2K18 has the largest roster in WWE games history, with nearly 200 WWE Superstars, Legends, and Hall of Famers available in the game!
I also enquired about the Resolution/FPS at which WWE 2K18 is going to run on Nintendo Switch (in both docked and handle mode), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
