If that wasn’t enough to get your attention, they also announced that they would be working with mobile publishing giant Chillingo on the project.

The game has been designed from the ground up for the mobile platform, and both Chillingo and Ninja Theory boast that it will have a “revolutionary touch-based combat system.” Chilling’s COO, Ed Rumley stated that their team was working very closely with the folks Ninja Theory to “ensure Fightback delivers a phenomenal experience for mobile and tablet devices.”
When discussing why they were making a game for mobile, Ninja Theory’s Product Manager, Dominic Matthews said that:
