The lights are on
The original Infinity Blade was one of the first stand-out titles for the iOS platform. Made by a studio owned by Epic Games called Chair, the original game has raked in millions of dollars and has spawned a sequel of its own. Now Epic Games proper, the studio in Raleigh, North Carolina, is taking a stab at the franchise. The team is creating a touch-based action-RPG that takes place before the events of the first Infinity Blade game. We spoke with the studio's director of production Rod Fergusson about the development of the game, how it's inspired by Pokemon, and what the team at Epic hopes to learn about micro-transactions and content pushes.

I love the infinity blade games, and this actually looks even more fun. These are really the type of games that demonstrate the potential for awesome mobile games.
this looks like fun. cant wait for it to come out. But I will wait until some reviews surface before I buy it
inspired by pokemon? i kinda like the sound of that . we'll see tho
So where is Fortnite? Also I would buy the Infinity Blade Trilogy(?) for DS or 3DS. Get on it Rod!
I am really looking forward to this. Hopefully it launchs something that goes to consoles
never been truly excited for an iOS game before, cant wait.
Thats pretty bold to say you were inspired by Pokemon and expect people not to flee. Oh wait "You can not escape!"
The game does look very interesting but I generally use my iPad for playing games.
Inspired by Pokemon.
Awesome. I'm so glad that they get that a mobile game works, and works well when you design touch controls. Trying to shoehorn in stick and buttons controls on a touch screen makes for a lousy experience. The first two IB games were great, cannot wait for this one!!!!
