When iPhone gaming first gained popularity we expected hits like Angry Birds and Doodle Jump, but few people foresaw the large influx of quality RPG experiences. Specifically, the large amount of RPGs that have been coming out of South Korea where mobile RPGs had been popular many years before it caught on in the West. The latest of these so-called "KRPGs" to reach our shores is called Wild Frontier.
ChAIR and Epic Games today announced Infinity Blade, the companies' action-RPG sword fighting adventure, will launch via the App Store on Thursday, December 9.
The game, which will be available for all of Apple's iOS-based devices, while retail for $5.99 and be powered by the Unreal Engine 3. In Infinity Blade, players will fight through sword battles and epic boss fights set in the realm of a fully 3D castle.
Less than three years after the launch of Apple’s handset, Final Fantasy, the role-playing classic that practically defined its genre, has arrived for the iPhone. And with the exception of a few tweaks that could be made, it's arrived in fine style.
Where Final Fantasy I defined the role-playing genre for the late '80s/early '90s, Final Fantasy II took the core idea and experimented with what could be done with it. That being the case, the classic sequel has come to the iPhone and iPod touch in outstanding form with only a few wrinkles to iron out.
