Mo' Money, Mo' MOBA: CD Projekt RED Announce 'The Witcher Battle Arena'

Yesterday CD Projekt Red, in conjunction with Fuero Games, announced The Witcher Battle Arena for iOS. As the name suggests, the new game is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA), in the vein of Riot's League of Legends or Valve's Dota 2. The catch, of course, is that all of the characters are from the Witcher, a series of sprawling PC and console role-playing games, based on a group of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrezj Sapkowski...

'Midnight Star' Soft Launches for the Lucky Irish

Midnight Star from the ex-Bungie and Wideload founder Alex Seropian's studio Industrial Toys has soft-launched in Ireland. The first-person quasi-on-rails shooter, which hopes to make the genre work on mobile at last with loads of touchscreen-friendly features, is now available in its "0.1" version just in the Irish App Store for now. The game is allegedly still far away from its final release, with more territories expected to get the game as time goes on...

New 'Implosion' Trailer Emphasizes Fast Combat and Controller Support

We first caught wind of Rayark's upcoming action game Implosion in September of last year with an impressive trailer showing the game's fast-paced combat in action. The following month, Rayark released another trailer for the game, this time showing how the game actually controlled with the touchscreen. Both trailers looked fantastic and I've been really excited for Implosion ever since. Rayark has been plugging away at the game and showing it off at the various conferences that took place this year, most recently at Google I/O last week, and they've put together another new trailer to mark the occasion...

Longtime TouchArcade readers likely know the rocky history of the Sword & Poker franchise, and it appears there's a new chapter to the tale. To recap, the original Sword & Poker [$2.99 / Free] launched way back in January of 2010, and was a fantastic hybrid of poker-style gameplay and RPG-like progression. It didn't take long but the following May a sequel was released appropriately titled Sword & Poker 2 [$3.99 / Free] which didn't drastically alter the formula but did offer some new levels and improvements for fans of the first game. Both were fantastic mobile games that had a fairly large following of fans, especially around our forums. However, in late 2010, both games mysteriously vanished from the App Store...

Square Enix and Gree have announced a new free-to-play Final Fantasy game, Final Fantasy Artniks Dive, coming to iOS later this summer in Japan...

Spotted on our forums earlier this morning is the Uplay screenshot seen to the right. Literally nothing else about this game seems to exist anywhere else, so, details are limited to what it tells us. Part card battler, part RPG, and part strategy game, there's a lot you could be doing in Assassin's Creed Memories. Either way, it's "coming soon," so we hopefully won't have to wait too long to find out...

Match 3 Zombies to Blow Them Up in Noodlecake and Massive Damage's Upcoming 'Zombie Puzzle Panic'

There are a lot of match-3 games out there. Seriously, there's so many of them. There are a lot of zombie games as well. But zombie match-3 games? Why, that's just an underserved market. And Noodlecake Games and Massive Damage are going to serve that market with Zombie Puzzle Panic...

Check, mate: 'Chess 2: The Sequel' Coming to iPad

According to a short and sweet post on the Ludeme Games website, Chess 2: The Sequel is iPad bound and apparently "coming soon." The somewhat obviously-titled game was until recently an Ouya exclusive, having been released late last year for the undersized Android console. Chess 2 is a two-pronged effort from designer Dave Sirlin and Zac Burns, the founder of Ludeme Games. Sirlin—who became famous for his work rebalancing Super Street Fighter II HD Turbo remix, and who recently released a card-battle game called Yomi [$9.99 (HD)]—wrote the new rules, and Ludeme is handling the development side...

New Dogs, New Tricks: Trichotomy Games Brings Mushing to iOS with 'Dog Sled Saga'

Lisa Bromiel and Dan FitzGerald are the two-person team from Chicago-based Trichotomy Games, and they're making a game about dogsledding. If the idea of throwing biscuits to a team of pixelated malamutes isn't immediately exciting, maybe reading Brian Phillips' 20,000-word opus about the beauty, drama, and danger of the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race will perk you up. Either way, check out Dog Sled Saga...

'Space Colors' Will Bring Vibrant Explosions in the Stars to iOS Soon

Austin-based Team Chaos is working on their next release, Space Colors. Let's start with this video that shows why it's called Space Colors:..

Gorgeous Tactical RPG 'The Banner Saga' Coming to Tablets this Summer

This morning Versus Evil, a publisher-consultant for independent games, announced via Twitter that Stoic Studio's The Banner Saga was making its way to tablets this summer. The Banner Saga is a Norse-themed role-playing game mixed with a survival sim. While your caravan flees the overwhelming horde of Dredge, you'll need to ration food, keep morale up, and protect your people. Your oxen might not die fording a river, but your best reaver might fall off a cliff trying to save a wagon full of salted beef and potatoes. When it's time to hold your ground against the Dredge, a grid-based tactical RPG takes over, with a focus on efficiency and positioning...

First Three 'Blackwell' Adventure Games Coming to App Store July 10th

We've known since late last year that Wadjet Eye Games was in the process of porting its back catalogue to iOS, but the indie developer and publisher announced its latest crop of games today: the first three titles in the Blackwell series of point-and-click adventure games are coming to iOS next week. Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, and Blackwell Convergence will all hit the App Store on July 10th, though there's no pricing info available yet...

Three years after the original Tiny Tower [Free] and last year's Disney-developed Tiny Death Star [Free], NimbleBit has announced that Tiny Tower Vegas is coming soon, though with no confirmed release date yet. This will take everything that made Tiny Tower so appealing - the bitizens, BitBook, jobs, elevators - and add in a Vegas touch, with playable casino game floors...

Jared Bailey just released Wrong Way Racing [Free] weeks ago, but his next swiftly-developed game is coming out this Thursday for free: Bowl Faster...

Looks like a third Street Fighter game for mobile is in the works. The new game is Street Fighter IV Arena, and Capcom's working on it with Nexon, with a planned beta test in Korea later this year. ..
