Announced via 2K’s website, WWE 2K19 will have a super special limited collectors edition to celebrate the career of the dirtiest player in the game, Ric Flair. Celebrating his illustrious career of over 16 world titles, the WOOOOO! Edition will include a WWE Hall of Fame replica ring (I wonder if it gives special powers like Hogans), exclusive WWE Hall of Famers to play as, and even a “Nature Boy”-inspired Funko Pop! figurine.
Dubbed the WOOOOO! Edition, it’ll be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Set to retail at $129.99 USD, the WOOOOO! Edition will be limited to 30,000 copies worldwide.
“For all of my fans around the world, it’s exciting and humbling to see my career immortalized through the power of video games,” said Ric Flair. “This is going to be one stylin,’ profilin,’ limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ ‘n’ dealin’ son of a collector’s edition, and you don’t want to miss out. Wooooo!”
