Snoop Dogg roster-raps in this slick WWE2K18 trailer

Remember when he fell asleep at ‘Mania?

I’ll admit, I first clicked a link to this new trailer for 2K Sport’s upcoming WWEK2K18 with skepticism, I thought it would make for a light, amusing Monday morning story for you good folks here at Destructoid, “Let’s all have a giggle”.

But, shut my fool mouth, because it’s actually pretty dang good. The new promo spot features The Artist Formerly Known as Snoop Lion rapping his way through a chunk of the game’s ultra-expansive roster, with slick visuals provided via some sharp editing. I actually think it’s one of the best spots the series has had in quite some time.

Unfortunately, having had very brief hands-on with the game, It seems to be business as usual when it comes to the stagnating series, with another mechanical installment on the horizon. If only the games could return to the pulse-pounding, exciting and relentlessly addictive gameplay of yore, that truly captured the same spirit implied by this commercial.

WWE2K18 is out October 17 on PS4 and Xbox One, with a Switch release to follow soon thereafter.
