Point-and-click beauty Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars: The Director's Cut won't be the last Broken Sword game to grace the App Store. Game creator Revolution has announced that its sequel -- and an improved one to boot -- will be hitting iOS "very shortly."
Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror: Remastered, as its being called, will feature fully animated facial expressions, sexier visuals, Game Center support, Dropbox save integration for cross-platform saves, and the same awesome context-sensitive hint system that appeared in the Shadows of the Templars iOS. And as if that wasn't enough, it'll also hit the App Store with higher quality music and a new digital comic created by artist Dave Gibbons.
Here's a story breakdown via Revolution's official blog:
The story sees the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard. While investigating a ruthless drug gang, journalist Nico Collard unexpectedly comes across an ancient artifact. Little does she know that the ornately carved obsidian stone will lead her, and her adventuring companion George Stobbart, into a mysterious escapade of intrigue and deceit, in which they must overcome powerful forces and antagonists who will stop at nothing to fulfill their evil ambitions.
No doubt this is exciting news for the droves you who loved the original Broken Sword as much as we did on our iPads and other iTouch devices. We'll be sure to get our hands on this one as soon as we can and relay the, hopefully, good word on it.
