Lenovo has officially announced its newest gaming phone, the Legion Phone Duel 2. A leak from earlier this week already revealed precisely what this strange device looks like, and now that we have all of the details, things are even stranger than expected. Lenovo is boasting twin-fan internal cooling, which explains the bizarre placement of the camera bump. Another oddity is the return of the landscape pop-up camera. Of course, since this is a gaming device, it will offer touch-sensitive triggers for easy button mapping and high framerate support. Availability for the Legion Phone Duel 2 starts this month in China, and the device is coming to select markets in Europe and Asia-Pacific in May.
Kabam and Netmarble are teaming up once again with Marvel to bring a new real-time RPG to Android. This title is known as Marvel Realm of Champions, and it will serve duty as the followup to Marvel Contest of Champions. It's expected to land sometime in 2020. Apparently, Realm of Champions will offer a reimagining of the Marvel Universe that's set on Battleworld, a forbidden planet hidden behind the Space-Time Barrier recently disrupted by the death of Maestro, the God-King. This results in a universe-wide battle themed around the Secret Wars event from 1984.
Asmodee Digital published Luckyhammers' digital adaptation of FryxGames' physical board game Terraforming Mars on PC in October of 2018, but thanks to a rough launch the planned mobile release was apparently put on hold.

Skylanders Ring of Heroes is a new free-to-play team-based gacha RPG that was just launched on the Google Play Store, all thanks to a partnership between Activision and Com2uS.

Of course, Skylanders Ring of Heroes brings along its own set of heroes that stem from the Skylanders universe as well as an original story that fleshes out its hero-collection gameplay.
Rooster Teeth has officially launched a new free-to-play digital card game on the Play Store that's unimaginatively titled RWBY Deckbuilding Game. It's designed around the six-season strong supernatural anime series RWBY. This is a release described as a "new breed of digital card game," and it actually contains a few unique elements that separates it from the competition, such as building your decks during battle, co-op raids, and a lack of booster packs that allows each expansion to offer a complete experience.
Ndemic Creations launched Rebel Inc. on iOS on December 6th, 2018, and today it has finally arrived on the Google Play Store.

Much like its predecessor Rebel Inc. is a strategy game, but this time around instead of spreading an infectious disease around the world you're tasked with stabilizing five regions through political and military might.

Back in the beginning of December 2018, Tony Hawk's Skate Jam arrived on the Play Store as a pre-registration release. A week later the title was officially released on iOS, which means the game's devs have had some time to receive player feedback and address a few notable issues. Recently added features like controls to match the old console Tony Hawk Pro Skater games and bluetooth controller support are included with today's release. So for once, a late arrival on Android actually pays off.
