Reliance Games, a leading international developer and publisher of mobile games, is bringing the sci-fi action-adventure Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim to mobile devices. Based on the Guillermo del Toro directed film coming to theaters July 12, 2013, the Pacific Rim mobile game tasks players with protecting the world's most famous cities from the Kaijus, monstrous aliens that have risen from the seas to destroy humanity.
Commanding a giant Jaeger robot, players can hone their skills in a story mode that will take their Jockey from rookie to ace, building up lethal combos and discovering new weapons and technology to give them an edge against the Kaijus. Upgraded Jaegers can also be used in survival mode, challenging players to beat back the alien menace and keep the world safe for as long as they can.
Joel Chiodi, EVP of Theatrical Marketing at Legendary, had this to say about the game.
"Pacific Rim the mobile game will extend Guillermo del Toro's epic adventure beyond the theater screen and into the pockets of gamers around the world. Reliance Games' has developed an entertaining mobile game that matches the action-packed power of the film."
Manish Agarwal, CEO of Reliance Games, continued.

With the Pacific Rim mobile game, we are drawing from deep experience to create a thrilling standalone component to the Pacific Rim brand that will wow mobile gamers and film fans alike."
About Pacific Rim
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim. When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are synched in a neural bridge. But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
