A WWE star has been announced as “coming soon” for an upcoming update to the well-received WWE 2K23 video game.
Already boasting an impressive roster, WWE 2K23 will add superstars through paid-for DLC packs and, it’s now been confirmed, for free with updates.
The official WWE Games Twitter account confirmed the addition of Mia Yim to the game and shared a video of her in-ring entrance, which you can see below.
