The idle game is being developed by The Tap Lab, and it will feature a variety of past and present WWE Superstars.
While few gameplay details were revealed, in a release, WWE and Sega said the game will allow players to climb leaderboards during live in-game events based on some of WWE’s real-world shows, including WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Royal Rumble.
In the release, Naoki Kameda, chief operating officer of Sega’s mobile division in the West, commented:
At Sega, we like to find new ways to bring brands and experiences to a wide mobile gaming audience. This partnership with WWE presents a fresh opportunity for collaboration. Working with WWE, a monumental leader in global entertainment, along with The Tap Lab, a studio known for crafting action-packed games that are fun at their core, we’re confident that WWE Tap Mania will delight WWE fans worldwide.
Casey Collins, executive vice president of consumer products at WWE, added:
We are always looking to engage our global fan base in new and exciting ways. Partnering with industry leader Sega is a great opportunity for us to continue our mobile game strategy while bringing in new fans with WWE Tap Mania.
WWE Tap Mania is expected to launch for free on iOS and Android later this year. The game is the latest in a long line of WWE-themed mobile applications, which includes everything from a trading card app to an emoji keyboard and beyond.
