Along with all the other new games that released tonight, Capcom has quietly snuck the iOS port of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies [Free] onto the App Store. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, or Ace Attorney 5 for short, was previously a Nintendo 3DS exclusive that was released last year. Earlier this month an iOS port popped up on the Japanese App Store without warning, leaving us all wondering if it would eventually make it to the US. The very next day Capcom confirmed that Ace Attorney 5 was heading to the US, but their only response for the release date was "quite soon." I guess they weren't kidding!..

Out Now: 'WWE SuperCard', 'Corpse Party', 'Sentinel 4: Dark Star', 'Accidental Spelunking', 'Spellfall - Puzzle RPG' and More

It's another Wednesday night on the App Store which means another big batch of new games have just hit the US App Store. As a big wrestling fan (which you should be well aware of if you listen to our podcast) I'm actually quite excited for WWE SuperCard, which is a free to play card battler featuring all the stars from WWE. Yep, I'm excited for a free to play card battler, never thought I'd say that. Also the classic Sentinel tower defense series sees a brand new entry, and a popular desktop and PSP game called Corpse Party has finally made its way stateside after launching on iOS in Japan a couple of years back. Not a bad week at all, so check out the full list of releases below and see what captures your interest...

One of the most charming, lovable and fun games in the history of the App Store is Andreas Illiger's breakout hit Tiny Wings [$0.99]. Originally launched in early 2011, Tiny Wings took the world by storm with its simple, one-touch, belly-sliding gameplay, watercolor-like visuals, and absolutely killer music. It wasn't just that it was a great mobile game, but something about Tiny Wings hit players on an emotional level, and the game quickly topped the charts and dethroned the then king of the App Store Angry Birds. ..

Upcoming 'Call of Duty : Heroes' Looks a Lot Like 'Clash of Clans' But 'Call of Duty'-ized

Activision just revealed the latest game in the Call of Duty franchise that's exclusive to iOS. That sentence probably has you pretty excited, yeah? Well, let me bring you back down to earth- It looks and sounds a lot like the free to play base building and attacking games that have blown up in popularity since Clash of Clans Started making bazillions of dollars a day...

Way back in September of 2012, developer SoMoGa released a touch-friendly port of the classic RPG Lunar Silver Star Story. The port, appropriately called Lunar Silver Star Story Touch [$6.99], was really good, despite a few minor drawbacks. Unfortunately, Lunar Touch released right as the iPhone 5 came out, and being that it was based on a mid-90s Sega Saturn game, it wasn't exactly equipped to support the new 4-inch widescreen of the new iPhone...

If you're heavily into the Infinity Blade series and fancy having your own collection of figurines based on your in-game characters, then Chair and online 3D printing service Sandboxr have you covered. A new feature has just gone live in Infinity Blade III [$6.99] which allows you to customize an in-game character to your liking with the game's selection of different armors and weapons, and then with a tap of a button, send the character off to Sandboxr to have it printed out in color with their 3D printing service and shipped to your door...

As I completed the final class challenge of the Construct Wing, it hit me, next week is the last Hearthstone [Free (HD)] expansion wing to open... Potentially for a long time. Blizzard hasn't mentioned any solid plans for more expansions yet, and, knowing how Blizzard has operated in the past, it might be a while. So, let's savor these last couple wings, eh?! Also, I know I've been slow to put up the guides for the Heroic side of the previous wing. I really wanted to believe beating them were possible without just drawing a god hand and having the bosses draw crap the whole game, but I'm not so sure. I'll get it up soon...

Back in early June we learned that Zen Studios had teamed up with Telltale Games to bring a new pinball table based on The Walking Dead adventure game series to their popular iOS pinball app Zen Pinball [Free]. Well Zen has been plenty busy in the two months since that announcement with Comic-Con and tons of Marvel announcements, but we had yet to hear anything on when the Walking Dead table would hit. Until today, as Zen has revealed that starting August 26th the Walking Dead pinball table will be available across digital storefronts...

Ubisoft Bringing 'Valiant Hearts: The Great War' to iOS in September

During Gamescom, Ubisoft announced that they were bring Valiant Hearts: The Great War to iOS as a universal app next month. The colorful puzzle-adventure game will be available on the App Store on September 4th. It was released last year on PC and console...

At times, it's hard not to anthropomorphize Kemco as that student who is always in such a rush to turn in their assignment that they cut every possible corner. This behavior is particularly evident in the works of developer Hit-Point, who have so much potential that seems to get thrown under the bus in favor of churning out a half-dozen RPGs per year. Rusted Emeth [$3.99] is, sadly, a near-perfect example of both what Hit-Point does well and what they do poorly, another strike against my hopes of seeing this developer actually have some time and money for their projects. They're trying so hard to do something new, but on the way, they're making more sloppy mistakes than ever before...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Accidental Spelunking', 'Sentinel 4', 'WWE SuperCard', and Loads More

Another Wednesday morning is upon us, which, for people in the US region of the App Store means an entire day of waiting around while everyone else in the whole world can slowly start downloading these new iOS games. There's some good stuff in this list, including a new Sentinel game, a WWE card game, and some other games that look pretty promising. Stay tuned for 11:00 PM Eastern tonight for the full roundup...

I love Hearthstone [Free (HD)], you love Hearthstone, and it seems like everybody in the whole frickin' world loves Hearthstone... But we're going to need to settle in for the inevitable disappointment of these weekly expansions coming to an end next week. But, hey, in the meantime, let's party down on the Construct Quarter which just went live in the US...

Even if you've never heard of the Lone Wolf series of gamebooks written by Joe Dever (with their sporadic publishing history I wouldn't blame you), Joe Dever's Lone Wolf [$0.99], a new adventure made specifically for mobile platforms, has got a lot of initial punch. While everything seems to start like any other gamebook you've played on iOS, as soon as you reach the first battle of the game, it's clear that this game has got some strong ideas about where to take gamebooks in the future. The 'Wow' factor of turning the page to an illustration that comes to life in full 3D can't be underestimated, but in its quest to escape the shackles of its old format, Lone Wolf trips over some very familiar problems inherent to its new one. In the style of our reviews of The Walking Dead [Free] and The Wolf Among Us [$4.99], this review will be appended to as each new act releases...

'Madden NFL Mobile' Soft-Launches in Canada, and Yeah, It's a Free to Play Game

EA's Madden NFL Mobile was only just officially unveiled yesterday, with a planned release date of August 26th alongside its console big brothers. However, it looks like EA is hoping to do a quick test launch of the game and get some early feedback, as Madden Mobile went live in the Canadian App Store as part of a soft-launch earlier today...

Back in May, a very interesting game was released for the iPad called SXPD: Extreme Pursuit Force [Free]. It aimed to blend digital comics with high-speed racing gameplay, and did so fairly successfully. It featured 6 chapters of comic storyline created by renowned comic artist Duke Mighten, with the combat-heavy racing portions being created by industry vet David Perry. The only problem was that SXPD was created for the iPad only, and that somewhat limited its audience. That all changes today though with a new update adding Universal support to SXPD. The initial download of the game has also been changed to free, and this seems to be a permanent change which offers the first chapter of the game for free with the 5 additional chapters unlocked permanently through a 99¢ IAP...
