In a forum post today on their website, Spacetime Studios “Admin and Community Guy” Sam Hayne confirmed that their highly anticipated title, Star Legends (formerly known as Blackstar), has been submitted to Apple as of July 11, and that the companies are working together to get it live on the App Store.

Hayne went so far as to imply that the Apple submission is what is holding the game from release, saying, “As you know, we always launch simultaneously to all of our channels (Apple App Store, Android Marketplace, GetJar).”

We couldn’t be more excited, and have been so since the announcement of the game in February, and our own hands-on time with it at GDC 2011.

Assuming the name change brings this game in line with the Pocket Legends brand, we’re sure this new sci fi themed MMO will be as much or more of a hit than its predecessor, with the pedigree the team brings to the table – the team worked on the original PC-based Blackstar from NCSoft before that project was shut down and Spacetime studios re-acquired the rights to the engine and the intellectual property.

Stay tuned here for details as they emerge – we’ve got our eye on this one.
