The relentless onslaught of Gameloft iOS releases continues, as they have announced that their Uncharted-like action-adventure game Shadow Guardian will be launching December 16th. For those of you familiar with the intricacies of preset App Store release dates and the mysteries of global time zone differences, that means that Shadow Guardian will be hitting the New Zealand App Store in the next few minutes and should appear in the US App Store at 11pm EST tonight. Gameloft has also provided a brand new trailer for Shadow Guardian in anticipation of its release:

If you've played the Uncharted games on Playstation 3 before, then you will likely be able to point out the many similarities in this trailer for Shadow Guardian. But, as always, it's pretty unlikely that we'd ever get to see an official version of Uncharted on iOS, so I will gladly take this close approximation. There's a discussion currently underway for the game in our forums, and assuming we don't die of exhaustion from the avalanche of other games set to release tonight, we'll take a closer look at Shadow Guardian after it becomes available in the US App Store.

      I don’t necessarily want to have two internal drives in my phone (boot drive and SD). That’s nice in one sense, but also requires manual management of the two volumes (see Android).

      But you know what would make this all a lot easier? If you could restore any ONE app from backup—including a backup from a different device. So you could remove a game, put it back later, and have your progress remembered. Or remove it from your iPhone, put in on your other iPad, and transfer the progress.

      Having all your app data backed up essentially as a single device-tied file is not user-friendly to say the least. I’m sure Apple is working on better file/data management... someday... but it can’t come soon enough for me!

    Gameloft caught pirating other developer's games again shocker, who'd have thought it?

    I think I'll wait for Uncharted 3 on my PS3 instead.

  • Kamil Waheed

    Is this by any means similar to the actual Uncharted 1/2 on PS3?

  • http://twitter.com/spongefile Tina Aspiala

    LOL. The trailer is like a parody of Uncharted.

  • Mort

    Why Gameloft always uses such horrid voice actors?

    And I thought the last bunch was a off the hook; this is insane. Tempted to buy all, however, skipped past Altered Beast faster than skipping past TLC knowing Sarah Palin's Alaska was on.
