So far we have had some decent support regarding Virtual Reality and Android devices announced. Initially Oculus Rift announced Android support before Facebook bought them out, that hasn’t changed as far as we know. HTC and Valve are working on the HTC Re Vive VR headset which no doubt will get Android support if it doesn’t have it already. Now Razer has announced that their open Virtual Reality platform, called OSVR, will come with compatibility for Android devices.

Nyko isn’t new to making controllers for Android devices and this year at E3 2015 the company has unveiled a new controller which is compatible with Android phones, tablets, and set-top boxes called the Cygnus.

When Apple finally opened up iOS enough for peripheral manufacturers to make controllers and other devices for the iPhone and iPad, SteelSeries was one of the first companies to announces and release a new controller for iOS gamers to finally get to use. Called the Stratus XL, this controller went on to get a lot of great reviews, being one of the best controllers for iOS. Not like they have a lot of them mind you. Android, on the other hand, has plenty of controllers designed specifically for Android devices including ones from SteelSeries, which we actually have used on a fairly regular basis and reported on back during CES 2013.

Square Enix has plenty to announce during their press event at E3 2015 today, and while we feel a little burned right now with no Final Fantasy VII announced for Android, we will get over it. Instead we will play around with Square Enix’s newly announced Final Fantasy Portal app when it becomes available soon.
Mortal Kombat X has finally been out for a bit now, but since the game’s release one feature hasn’t been available for anyone to play. That feature is the Thunder God Raiden Challenge, which up until this update was a lonely, darkened, unusable button on your screen. Now it is more than a nice looking image on your screen.
One of the bigger announcements for mobile was that Square Enix would be bringing Final Fantasy VII to iOS. However, what about Android gamers, many of whom are big Final Fantasy fans and want Final Fantasy VII to play? Well, unfortunately nothing was announced for Android.

Square Enix held their press event today and one of the titles announced for mobile was a new Lara Croft game called Lara Croft GO. While there was very little in the way of details announced, the company did mention a few things that are of interest to note.
Ubisoft’s Just Dance series has a new title coming out soon which is appropriately named Just Dance 2016.
