Following widespread criticism about WWE 2K15, the latest console offering, Immortals, a free-to-play mobile video-game, was unleashed upon the world this week. The move follows some super weird promotional material involving Triple H, in particular, looking a bit like he did during last year’s much-discussed Wrestlemania entrance.
But, if you thought that shit was weird, then the character designs that have since been revealed will blow your fucking mind.
NetherRealm, the guys behind the legendary Mortal Kombat series, have taken it upon themselves to turn our, er, favourite WWE Superstars into Kombat-ised versions of themselves. And the resulting posters have to be seen to be believed.
First, there’s Cena, looking like his favourite superhero.
Sheamus, who’s been off TV for a while but whose heritage the makers are of the game are clearly very respectful of.
Then there’s Brock Lesnar, who’s so mad he’s on fire.
In all fairness, though, Immortals is pretty bad ass and the whole Mortal Kombat aesthetic works weirdly well for the Superstars.
