With the hotly anticipated release of the third "Iron Man" film just around the corner, Gameloft has debuted the first trailer for its official Iron Man 3 game. You can check out the trailer for the game below. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. It doesn't take a genius like Tony Stark to figure out from the trailer that Gameloft's upcoming Iron Man 3 game is going to be an endless runner. Gameloft itself says as much in its description for the video:
Become billionaire Tony Stark as Iron Man in this fast paced endless runner and fight the AIM around the world to prevent their dark schemes from succeeding. Grab your Arc reactor & suit up for an awesome run!Unlike the hugely popular endless runner Temple Run and the countless games that it has "inspired," Iron Man 3 involves a lot of flying, not to mention fighting, on the part of the title character. It actually reminds me of Verticus, except that Iron Man 3 calls for mostly horizontal flying while Verticus requires vertical falling. Incidentally, Verticus also features a specially suited superhero created by none other than Iron Man's co-creator, Stan Lee. The official Iron Man 3 game is set to be launched by Gameloft on iOS on April 25, a week before the movie's theatrical premiere in the U.S. Are you looking forward to this "yet another" endless runner that happens to center on the famous billion-dollar armored superhero? Or would you rather play another adventure game like Gameloft's Iron Man 2?
