During the Apple press conference yesterday, Chair Entertainment (creator of the Infinity Blade series and the XBLA game Shadow Complex) announced the third installment to the IB franchise, Infinity Blade III.
Surprisingly, Chair also announced that the game would launch next week, September 18th, on the app store for $7. The infinity Blade series has been an overwhelming success for Chair and debuts across all Apple products. IB III is no different. Spanning across the newly announced iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the game will also be compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPod Touch 5, and iPod Touch 4.
"It’s been amazing to see the continued success of Infinity Blade and to have the ability to tell a complex story across different mediums, using a single device we take wherever we go. We're so proud of Infinity Blade III and feel it not only offers a powerful finale to the series, but also gives mobile gaming another giant push forward. " - Chair's Creative Director, Donald Mustard.
Infinity Blade III will let you play as both the male hero Siris and the female warrior-thief Isa and your gameplay will change based on which character you choose. Weapons abound in this new tale, but the ultimate goal is honor and glory for time immemorial.
Running on the Unreal Engine, IB III looks very smooth. Guess we'll find out in a week's time how much fun this new title is compared to the previous ones.
