Apple today announced its next generation of iPads will feature Epic's new Infinity Blade: Dungeons and Namco's Ace Combat-esque Sky Gamblers as two of its premier gaming apps.
Unveiled as a showpiece for the new iPad 3 during Apple's event in San Francisco, Infinity Blade: Dungeons will continue the third-person, monster-slashing adventure – this time with what looks to be more action RPG elements, including a new dungeon crafting system that will reportedly allow players to build an Infinity Blade of their very own.
Epic boss Mike Capps was on hand at the Apple gala to hype Infinity Blade: Dungeons. He said the sequel will benefit greatly from being on the iPad 3, which he claimed boasted more memory and screen resolution than Xbox 360 and PS3, insisting, “[Infinity Blade: Dungeons] is only going to look like this and play like this on the new iPad...The Unreal engine is unleashing the power of the new iPad."
Namco also debuted its iPad 3 app, Sky Gamblers, which was described as a “console quality” experience starring up to 50 jets in a high-flying fighter similar to the Ace Combat series.
Neither Epic or Namco revealed when their games will arrive in the App Store, but expect them arrive with (or very close to) the iPad 3, when Apple's next "must-have" iGadget debuts later this month.
