While WWE has always been a staple on home consoles their mobile footprint has not been as aggressive gaming wise. That changed today when 2K announced a brand new collectible free-to-play digital card game called WWE SuperCard. WWE SuperCard is available now for iOS devices via iTunes and for Android devices in both the Google Play and Amazon App stores.
The concept of the game may be familiar to those of you that have played Hearthstone. Players can build a team consisting of wrestlers, divas and legends from the 400 currently available cards and train them to battle in an assortment of matches. If you want to truly test your deck you can head online and see how your deck stacks up via their ranked multiplayer mode. It would not be a card game without the ability to level up and add unique and rare techniques to your stable. Decks can be enhanced with booster packs or acquiring superstar cards from your defeated opponent. Sound good? We got some cool stuff from 2K so you can get familiar with WWE SuperCard. Here is a glimpse of what players can expect along with a trailer as well.
