It was a treat having The Bard's Tale [$5.99] – the port of the 2004 remake of the 1985 classic – brought to the App Store late last year, and developer inXile Entertainment is looking to sweeten the pot even further starting this week. According to IGN, series creator Brian Fargo wants to add all 3 original The Bard's Tale games to the iOS app for free via updates. The original The Bard's Tale should be showing up this week if all goes according to plan.
Subsequent updates will come about a mont apart from each other and will see The Bard's Tale II and The Bard's Tale III added to the game as well. It isn't clear which versions of the originals these will be, since all 3 games were ported across multiple platforms back in the day. If you missed The Bard's Tale in any of its forms over the years, check out our review of the iOS version, which is still a fun and humorous adventure even by today's standards. Be on the lookout for the original The Bard's Tale to hit in an update this week.
