Infinity Blade FX brings the iOS hit to arcades

Touchscreen RPG Infinity Blade is set to transcend the portable-sized screens on which it made its name with the release of Infinity Blade FX, a large-screen coin-op port for release in arcades. The arcade version of the iOS hit is set to debut at Salt Lake City's GEEX consumer expo this weekend before being launched in Dave & Buster's locations throughout the country by month's end.

The arcade version of Infinity Blade follows fellow iOS hit Fruit Ninja in utilizing Adrenaline's TouchFX platform for big-screen multi-touch play.
