New “Inside Infinity Blade II Visuals” Video, Original on Sale for $2.99

With nearly a week remaining until the release of Infinity Blade II on December 1st, Chair has released a new video of some in-game footage alongside describing the visuals.  While some parts of it are reminiscent of Apple’s iPhone introduction videos, it does show a lot of gameplay footage, highlighting the shades and lighting that take place within the game.

The first Infinity Blade was released back in 2010, wowing users by its breathtaking graphics using the Epic Unreal Engine 3.  We personally loved the game, and although it was a bit repetitive, the gameplay itself was action-packed, well-balanced, and a bit more difficult every time, leading me to keep coming back for more and more until I was able to buy all of the most expensive accessories in the store.

In short, we were mightily impressed with the first one and cannot wait to see what’s in store for the second one.

Infinity Blade II will be released on December 1st for $6.99, and it will be universal.  In celebration of Infinity Blade II’s upcoming release, the original has been put on sale for $2.99 (and even though it’s old, I suggest you pick it up).

Bug Heroes Quest Submitted, Coming Late July/Early August

Bug Heroes Quest, essentially a sequel to the overwhelmingly awesome Bug Heroes, has been submitted to the App Store for review.

While Bug Heroes was more of a tower defense/dual-stick shooter survival game, Bug Heroes Quest promises to be more of a story-based action RPG, complete with dual-stick shooter goodness, character development, and more.

The game spans over 60 different missions with GameCenter leaderboards and achievements included, alongside tons of armor, weapons, etc.

Bug Heroes Quest also boasts of a very in-depth fantasy world and an interesting storyline, not like the old “cookie cutter save the princess and the kingdom”.

We’re looking forward to getting our hands on Bug Heroes Quest, but for now, be sure to check out the recently released game trailer; look for it in the App Store late July/Early August.

‘Emissary of War’: An Upcoming Action RPG Headed by Former BioWare Lead

We don’t get too many heavy-hitting action RPGs in the App Store, and Emissary of War looks to be something that may just fill that void a little bit.

Described as fast-paced and a fully-3D dungeon-crawling adventure, Emissary of War also includes full voiceovers, an original engine, and a unique story-driven gameplay.

You play the role of Ghent, a barbarian sent on a diplomatic mission that goes horribly wrong. With an alchemist companion, Hassock, offering much-needed backup, you will hack and slash your way through monsters and more, upgrading your weapons and tactics to deal with new threats to your mission. Your sense of duty and allegiances will be put to the test as you unravel the mystery behind your failed assignment.

Another tidbit includes GameCenter and achievements, along with supporting all iOS devices (hoorah!).

We’re looking forward to getting our hands on this game, but for now, be sure to check out the trailer and screenshots.

‘Golden Axe 3’ and ‘Streets of Rage 3’ Coming to App Store Next Week

It was just last week since Golden Axe 2 and Streets of Rage 2 were released, but that doesn’t stop Sega from releasing the classic sequels to each of the games.

According to SEGA’s Facebook post and blog post (scroll to the bottom), the third installment of both the Golden Axe and Streets of Rage franchises will be coming to the App Store in the coming days.  Streets of Rage 3 will be coming later this week, while Golden Axe 3 arriving sometime next week.

There is no specified date for each launch, but each game should be arriving anytime soon.  They look to utilize Sega’s emulator that has been used on all of their classic games, and while I’m not a huge fan of the whole emulator business, it’s a nice way for App Store gamers to relive their past.

If the price is consistent with their previous launches, look for Golden Axe 3 and Streets of Rage 3 to land somewhere around the $2.99 price range.
