2K had a press call to announce a "WWE NXT expansion pack" - it's mostly the usual extra cost Limited Edition version of video games with collectables and in-game currency. (The create a player mode has a in-game currency now, is that a new thing?) You get a 8" statue of Demon Balor, who doesn't want that. This post has more details if you're interested.

The twist, which you may have figured out from that headline, is they'll also have three exclusive characters
* Shinsuke Nakamura
* Apollo Crews
* Nia Jax

Those characters will only be available at launch for the PS4 & X1 if you buy the ($100) NXT Expansion pack. They'll be available to be right away if you get the PS3/360 version, as they're not doing this pack; no word on price.

Like all the other bonus characters, and like Goldberg eventually this year, Nakamura, Crews and Jax will be offered as paid DLC at some point. They're not saying when, only that it'll be separate and outside of their season pass DLC. The presale characters have gone for $2-$5 in the past and it'll probably be the same here too, but you also probably won't get to play with Nakamura until January or February unless you pay an extra $40 for the game.

I don't like the idea, there's no way I'd pay that much, but if I was 2K, Nakamura is the guy to try it with. You can leave him out without completely breaking the game, but he's hot enough that they're going to sell a lot more of those $100 versions than if they put Austin Aries in that spot.

I hope the game is a little more NXT-heavy this year than last. Seemingly half of the NXT roster from this past WrestleMania time will be on the main roster by the time the game comes out. I feel like that have to have learned a little from the backlash of Sasha/Bayley/Charlotte/Becky not even being DLC last year, right? Right?

(Prediction: Gen. Adnan takes up a spot that should go to Tye Dillenger.)

The Hulk game is near un-toppable for wanton destruction, chaos, and fun. I loved being the Hulk in Ultimate Destruction. Superman by his very nature isn't about spreading chaos and smashing things and the game reflects that.
