Bad Bunny fans already have the musical star included in this year’s WWE title, but there’s a heck of a lot more of him now.
That’s Bad… Bunny
Usually, and we feel pretty comfortable saying this, non-wrestling stars don’t make the best impressions inside of the squared-circle. Just take a look back through the sport’s history and you’ll see that there’s really only a few personalities that have managed to make an impact in one way or another. One of those too, is arguably Bad Bunny.
The singer was a guest star at the WWE’s Backlash pay-per-view earlier this year, and made quite the showing. Modern fans ate up his performance, with plenty of positivity cast towards his match with pro-grappler Damien Priest.
And while he’s already included in WWE 2K23, which 2K released back in March of this year, he’s also now got a titled version for himself.
“Following the global success of Bad Bunny’s new album ‘Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana’ last week, and his historic match at WWE Backlash in Puerto Rico, we are excited to continue to collaborate with the biggest artist in the world and continue to break records with the WWE 2K23 Bad Bunny Edition,”Neil Lawi, Head of Music, WWE
A’la carte or altogether
The above WWE 2K23 Bad Bunny Edition just dropped last week, bundling both the Icon Edition of the base game and the Bad Bunny Superstar Pack together. The latter content pack looks to be a new offering, and includes BB decked out in his Backlash gear. Fans will also find an EVO card, logo, nameplate, and background for My FACTION included, plus an “LWO Puerto Rico” tee for the creation suite, and 15K VC.
Included in the above is:
The Bad Bunny Edition is available today for $139.99 MSRP and includes the WWE 2K23 Icon Edition, as well as the Bad Bunny Superstar Pack**, which features the following content:
- New version of playable Bad Bunny, wearing the adidas Men’s Tech Fall 2.0 Wrestling Shoe and clothing he wore at Backlash 2023;
- Bad Bunny Diamond tier MyFACTION EVO card, which can upgrade to Pink Diamond;
- Bad Bunny MyFACTION logo, nameplate and background;
- LWO Puerto Rico shirt part for Superstar Creator;
- 15,000 VC.
The WWE 2K23 Icon Edition includes the following content:
- Bad Bunny Bonus Pack, which includes Bad Bunny as a playable character, as well as a Ruby tier Bad Bunny MyFACTION card;
- Ruthless Aggression Pack, featuring John Cena’s early “Prototype” character, as well as “Leviathan” Batista, developmental rookie versions of Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton, the John Cena Legacy Championship and WrestleMania 22 Arena;
- Emerald Paul Heyman MyFACTION Manager Card;
- Three Deluxe Premium Launch MyFACTION Card Packs;
- Ruby John Cena MyFACTION Evo Card, Gold Edge MyFACTION Card, Emerald Bianca Belair MyFACTION Card, Gold Asuka MyFACTION Card, and three Basic Premium Launch MyFACTION Card Packs
- Season Pass to all five post-launch DLC content packs***;
- MyRISE Mega-Boost and SuperCharger.
While that’s looking like the most ‘complete’ version of 2K23 yet, you don’t have to buy another copy if you already own the base game. Aside from the Bad Bunny Edition that you see above, 2K has also released the Bad Bunny Superstar Pack.
Included with that is just the fresh BB stuff, for the price of $9.99 USD. But wait, there’s more, as there’s also the Bad Bunny Bundle. Priced at $89.99 USD, the BBB includes the WWE 2K23 Cross-Gen Standard Edition plus the Bad Bunny Superstar Pack and the Bad Bunny Bonus Pack. Then to top everything off, you also get a tidy little drop of 32,500 VC. Not too shabby there.
All of the above should be out now, so whether you want to add a little more Bad Bunny to your game, or don’t have it yet and want to grab a copy, you’ve got some options.
