In recent WWE 2K video games, the Showcase mode was removed and there was no replacement for it. Well 2K Games has now announced that the Showcase mode is back when WWE 2K19 releases later this October.
The rumors ended up being true because 2K Games announced that WWE 2K19 will have a Showcase mode dedicated to Daniel Bryan. You can relive all of the classic moments of his WWE career including the time he beat Randy Orton and Batista at WrestleMania XXX.
2K Games made the announcement via a new blog and interview with Daniel Bryan himself. You can read an overview of the mode posted down below.
“2K today announced the return of the 2K Showcase, a story-driven campaign mode honoring Daniel Bryan’s legendary career. Relive the most epic moments, the highlights and the challenges, from Daniel Bryan’s career that have made him the WWE Superstar he is today.
The ‘Return of Daniel Bryan’ Showcase features vignettes with historic WWE footage and Daniel Bryan’s own words that give context and backstory to the subsequent matches that gamers will play through, enabling players to truly feel the adversity that Daniel Bryan has faced each step of his WWE career. Fight for his dream by competing in 11 objective-based, legendary matches, and one additional ‘surprise’ match, playing as variations of Daniel Bryan to unlock historic arenas, Superstars, attires and championships”
As great as it is getting a Daniel Bryan showcase mode, sadly this means some other matches in his career won’t be included in the game. Most notably Bryan had many good matches with CM Punk in WWE a few years ago. However with CM Punk not signed with WWE, it’s unlikely these matches will be included in the new game.
WWE 2K19 releases for the PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms on October 9th, 2018. You can check out a new trailer for the Showcase mode posted below.
