WWE is using Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm Studios to create a new game for mobile platforms.
No word on exactly what type of game it is, just that is a mobile game that will feature epic Superstar battles in a fantastically re-imagined WWE world.
With Mortal Kombat and Injustice, one has to think this will be some sort of 1 on 1 fighting game in look, with some sort of modified mobile-friendly controls, although this is purely specuation.
The game is set to release on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices in 2015.
