An unprecedented move in mobile VR gaming, the partnerships represent seven new games slated for release across all current mobile VR platforms in Q1 of 2016.
The strategic alliances offer an array of content and include beloved brands such as Princess Isabella, Guerrilla Bob, and Plight of the Zombie.
