2K released a brand new mobile game in their burgeoning WWE portfolio this morning. Best of all? There’s no free-to-play in sight. That’s right, folks, we’re talking an honest-to-goodness wrestling game.
The game is titled, simply, WWE 2K. It’s available on both the App Store for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), and the Amazon Appstore (Android devices) for $7.99. No word yet on a Google Play release.
How does it look? Well… while it might not quite match up graphics-wise with its console brethren, it’s pretty sharp for a mobile game. The bigger question, though, is how well does it play? If you’ve checked out 2K’s WWE SuperCard, or the more recent WWE Immortals, you’ll know that both of those games come up short in the gameplay department. Still, they’re incredible popular. More importantly? They make WWE and 2K games a ton of cash.
Look for our review in the coming weeks.
