WWE 12 may well turn out to be the best wrestling game ever made which is some title in itself, but the one frustrating aspect of WWE 12 is that one wrestler in particular is a notable absentee. Chris Jericho is a firm fan favorite and didn’t feature in the game when WWE 12 launched, but after the superstar recently made his comeback into the ring this month, we may be seeing him in WWE 12 as DLC as well.
If you have been following progress involving Jericho’s inclusion into WWE 12, you’ll know that the chances of him appearing in the game initially were very slim. Jericho himself has Tweeted in the past that he would never be featured in any more WWE games, but we can tell you that a secret profile page exists for him on the THQ website, although information for the star is blank at the moment.
Am image of the superstar has been provided by iGoGaming which further adds to the speculation, but either way Jericho will not be appearing in the next DLC pack which features stars such as Batista, Macho Man and Mick Foley.
Since he is now firmly back in the WWE and looks set to be the main highlight of this weekend’s Royal Rumble, we would say that it is only a matter of time before the WWE put him in the game officially. In the meantime, fans have taken to the game’s excellent create a wrestler mode to create him from scratch, and as you can see from an example here – some of you have got Jericho spot on as well.
WWE 12 could be taking the mantle from the classic N64 game No Mercy as best wrestling game ever, but does WWE 12 need Chris Jericho to make it even better? Hopefully we will be seeing him in the game sooner rather than later – Bret Hart would be a nice addition too. Let us know your thoughts on this and if you would like to see him in the game or not.
