Gears of War 5 drew all of the attention from fans of the franchise at Microsoft's E3 2018 presentation, but Microsoft's also had something a little more fun-sized in mind for mobile phones. As part of a collaboration with Funko Pop, Microsoft took the wraps off of Gears Pop!, a new mobile title coming to Android and iOS.
There's little to go off of for now, but Microsoft says the game will bring a "unique mobile spin" to the Gears series. And if you're an avid collector of Funko Pop's infectiously cute vinyl figures, then there's a whole lot to like here.
So, mobile fans will have some Gears action to look forward to in 2019. Whether the cutesy art style will go over well with fans who are used to the Gears franchises dark tone remains to be seen, but it stands a chance of capturing some portion of the mobile market with such a major property.
