Just before the holidays, Warner Bros. Interactive teased a rather interesting project. NetherRealm Studios (a WB subsidiary, and the keepers of the Mortal Kombat flame) were confirmed to be working on a new mobile game featuring the world’s greatest wrestling superstars: WWE Immortals.

Beyond the title and studio though, little else was revealed. We were told it would be a “fantastically re-imagined WWE world,” and we could expect it sometime in 2015.

Today we have our first glimpse of that world, as well as a WWE Immortals release date — and it’s coming sooner than you think. The game¬†will arrive on the App Store and Google Play on January 15th.


Seamus as a Celtic Warrior, John Cena as a superhero, The Big Show as…. what is that? A Game of Thrones extra? It all seems rather fitting for NetherRealm. The Bella Twins even look like the studio¬†took some Mortal Kombat concept art and painted their heads on at the last minute.

This is a game that’s very clearly in their wheelhouse.


There’s still no word on the gameplay, but we’re going to stick with our prediction of an Injustice-style brawler. Whether we’re right or wrong, it won’t be long until we find out. WWE Immortals release date is locked down for January 15th.
