Power Rangers: Legacy Wars morphs into an official release

Who doesn't love seeing movie tie-in games? Especially ones that call back to a cash-flush demographic of 20 to 30-somethings.

If Zootopia and Mortal Kombat had a bastard child, it would be mobile one-on-one fighter Animelee

I recall with fondness the endless speculative arguments I heard around the elementary school lunch table in the 90s: who would win in a fight between Batman and Wolverine? Goku and Superman? Bill Clinton and Emilio Estevez? (There was always that one weird kid.) Imagine the same arguments happening in a university zoology department, and you might just find the inspiration for Animelee, an old-fashioned one-on-one fighter recently published in the Play Store. It's all about animals beating the crap out of each other. Check out the eye-popping trailer below:

Pro Wrestlers Pretend To Be Superheroes In The Free-To-Play Fighter WWE Immortals

You would think that professional wrestlers don't need an active fantasy life. They get paid huge amounts of money to pretend to beat people up and show off unbelievable physiques on television on a regular basis. But I suppose even wrestlers like to pretend that they're superheroes (the ones that aren't already superheroes, anyway). If you'd like to play along, Warner Bros and developer NetherRealm are here with an officially-licensed WWE fighting game that dials up the more fantastic elements of pro wrestling.

In WWE Immortals, The Rock is a golem who likes to clobber things. Triple H is a Conan-style barbarian.
