We’re getting another step closer to being able to access our PC gaming library in any place — whether it’s our bathroom or our bedroom. Though it already has been possible with a Steam Link device, Valve announced today that soon they will unveil the Steam Link app for mobile devices. The app will let iOS and Android users direct access to their full Steam library without any other devices, for as long as they are on the same network.

Any other devices powered by the two major mobile technology providers, such as Android or Apple TVs, will also be able to take advantage of this. For now, we know that Valve will support the “Steam Controller, MFI controllers, and more across both platforms.” The rollout begins on May 21st for iOS and Android, though the Android release will be a beta, initially.

Provided that the connection is stable, this could be a turning point for the fighting game market, which has been increasingly present on the PC market. Dragon Ball FighterZ has been record-setting on Steam, and every major fighting game is either on that platform or heading to it, like BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and SoulCalibur VI.
