"My name is Colonel Sanders and I am a real person. Oh, it's true. It's damn true."

Throughout the years, game developers and publishers have collaborated with a variety of organizations to produce some really strange in-game content. WWE 2K18 joins that list after it was announced that players will be able to enter the squared circle with KFC’s white-suited mascot, Colonel Sanders.

As seen on a promo during last Sunday’s WWE pay-per-view event, Hell in a Cell, users may outfit their very own WWE Superstar with the iconic (and slightly altered) costume through the game’s Create-a-Superstar feature.

The WWE 2K franchise is not a stranger to adding fictional characters to its roster. Back in 2015, those who pre-ordered WWE 2K16 gained access to two versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator.

Recently, it was announced that some traditional WWE Superstars would be added to the game as DLC. The Hardy Boyz, Beth Phoenix, current NXT Champion Drew McIntyre, and seven others will be playable when they are inevitably released.

WWE 2K18 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 17, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will release sometime this Fall.
