Infinity Blade swings onto App Store December 9th

Epic Games has announced that Infinity Blade has been given an official release date of December 9th (via Pocket Gamer) for the premium price of £3.99/$5.99. But this is ChAIR Entertainment’s visually spectacular slasher powered by the Unreal Engine and no doubt a showpiece for future iPhone, iPod and iPad gaming. Four quid is nothing to pay for such a privilege right? I guess we’ll find out in a week’s time. The game features a single player campaign with upgradable equipment and abilities as well as a multiplayer mode complete with Game Center integration. What exactly that integration maybe is still unannounced but at least two-player battles are a given as, I would imagine, leaderboards would be too.

But sadly here’s where the Apple handheld market starts to fragment. ChAIR have stated that only the newest versions of iDevices are supported, those being iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and third generation iPods (and above). It’s a shame for anyone still using older models especially when you think that they’re not exactly ancient in technology. Not that such a thing is exclusive to this game or indeed Apple products but I wonder how many people will be effected or if those who really care would have upgraded long ago. Hmm, it’s a puzzler. Or is it?…
