poker-night-2-74We just received a late-breaking press release from the folks at Tellale announcing that their irreverent poker series will be making its iOS debut tonight with the iPhone/iPad release of Poker Night 2.

Released last month on PC and consoles this unusual poker game puts you in the fifth seat at the wise-cracking and high-stakes table against a number of famous (and infamous) characters from video games and pop culture.

  • Claptrap from Gearbox Software’s critically-acclaimed and multi-million selling Borderlands video game series
  • Brock Samson from Adult Swim’s animated series The Venture Bros.
  • Sam from the Sam & Max video game and comic book series by Steve Purcell
  • Ash Williams from the cult classic movie Army of Darkness. Groovy!

poker-night-2_605606748_ipad_01Choose from either Texas Hold ‘Em or Omaha! and let the chips, cards and insults fly as you shuffle up and deal.

Players at the table will be assured of a fair hand dealt under the unblinking gaze of a Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System from Aperture Science research facilities. Otherwise known as GLaDOS from the Portal and Portal 2 games by Valve, Inc.!

I’ve been dying to check out this series for a while now, so I’m excited to see it finally arriving on iOS.
