Trailing behind the rest of the games released this week is 2K's hotly anticipated (for wrestling fans, anyway) full-fledged wrestling game WWE 2K [$7.99]. At first glance, it seems like a toned down (for mobile) version of the console title WWE 2K15, complete with multiple game modes including the ability to create your own WWE
It's new iOS game day and there's quite the eclectic mix of stuff on tap for this week's list.
