Mortal Kombat fans have been looking forward to Mortal Kombat X, the newest next-gen entry to the long-running fighter series, for quite a while. Now, as they've already done with properties like Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE: Immortals, Warner Bros. is preparing a mobile companion app to go along with the much more complex console game.

The Superbike World Championship is a chance for riders to take modified versions of publicly available motorcycles to the track in countries all over the world. The 2014 season may be over, but that doesn't mean some Android-toting fans haven't been craving a chance to get a virtual taste of the action.
