The lights are on
Mike Tyson wil follow up this year's induction into to the WWE Hall of Fame with an appearance in WWE 13 via a pre-order bonus.
Tyson will be a playable character in the game for anyone who pre-orders the game at a participating retailer.
The ex-boxer's appearance in WWE 13 isn't just a gimmick, as he's stepped into the WWE wrestling ring the past – including for Wrestlemania XIV, an era that is recreated in the game.
WWE 13 comes out on October 30 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Check out the game's latest trailer here.

I actually remember seeing the Wrestlemania with Tyson on TV! :D this is pretty cool!
Haha thats pretty cool. I hope they have all the attitude era wrestlers like big sexy chocolate Mark Henry and Mae Young. I also hope they recreate all the bat sh*t insane things Steve Austin did oh and the backstage matches and the I quit matches!
*Depressed sigh* I just found out a few weeks ago that my copy of No Mercy no longer works so I'm hoping this can replace the gaping hole in my heart :(
After like a dozen years they finally give people a good reason to buy a WWE game.
Seems interesting haven't bought or even played a wwe in years hopefully this one is good.
Um...yay? Even allowing players to re-create the DX v. Austin storyline is not enough to include him...and not include him for those who don't preorder.
Will I be allowed to bite someone's ear off as a finisher?
I'm surprised Dan wasn't the one announcing this.
I wonder what Dan thinks about Tyson being in a wwe game?...
But only as preorder bonus...
If they plan on recreating eras, this should be interesting.
