NetherRealm’s mobile games get new characters for Mortal Kombat’s 25th!

FINISH HIM, where HIM = The Game

You’d think that touch screen controls and fighting game inputs wouldn’t go together well, but somehow NeatherRealm Studios managed to pull off multiple fighting games on mobile devices. While they are basically heavily compromised versions of their console counterparts, WWE Immortals is actually a fairly original take on tag battles with outlandish approximations of WWE superstars. What more could you ask for?

More characters? Well, ask and you shall receive. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mortal Kombat, Klassic Scorpion will be heading to Injustice, Xavier Woods will be getting a Raiden costume in WWE Immortals, Raiden will be heading to Injustice 2 and Shao Khan will be heading to Mortal Kombat X alongside two versions of Goro (Klassic and Tigar Fury). That may not be a large amount of characters, but having Scorpion in more games is never a problem. Also, Xavier Woods looks pretty bad ass as Raiden.

I’ve yet to try any of NetherRealm’s mobile offerings, but I did enjoy what Capcom did with Street Fighter IV on mobile. Who would have thought that boiling down a fighting game to its bare essence could help with translating it to a different device?
