There are a bunch of anticipated iOS releases set for early 2014, and now we can add one more to this list: Shadow Blade, a fun, fast-paced ninja-style game for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, is set to reach the App Store in February 2014, and its developer has just published the app’s first gameplay trailer.
Developed by Dead Mage, an independent game studio, here’s what iDevice users can expect from Shadow Blade:
Kuro is a young man on his quest to become the Shadow Blade. He must seek the teachings of the last remaining ninja master. You will guide him through challenging levels, around countless traps, sneaking past enemies or right over their dead bodies. You have to be fast, be stealthy, be aware of your environment. You have to be a ninja.
Promising “intuitive touch controls,” an array of weapons, and challenging levels, Shadow Blade definitely appears to be an iOS app worth looking out for. Check out the recently unveiled gameplay trailer for a better idea of what can be expected from the forthcoming app.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDVp0KHn–2Y&feature=player_embedded
