ChAIR has unveiled Infinity Blade III: Kingdom Come, the final update for Infinity Blade III. The update will provide a new environment, new enemies (including a new dragon to face off against), and dozens of new items to collect.
Alongside this announcement of the final update, ChAIR has also released a trailer to celebrate four years of Infinity Blade being shown off on the Apple stage, with footage from the update sprinkled throughout.
The ‘Kingdom Come’ update for Infinity Blade III is set to arrive on September 4, with the game available on the App Store now for $6.99.
Fans of the visually stunning Infinity Blade III will be interested to hear that they can now create custom 3d printed replicas of their characters. ChAIR has partnered with Sandboxr, a 3D printing development company, to make creating a customized model possible. This is offered as an in-game service, making it a very unique feature.
Donald Mustard, Co-Founder/Creative Director for ChAIR said, “The ability to take something from the virtual world, customize it, and push a button to transform it into the physical world is magic. We’re excited to introduce collectibles that allow fans to create what they decide is the ultimate expression of their character. We can’t wait to see all of their amazing Infinity Blade creations.”
According to their site customized characters start at $19.99 for a 3.5″ model to $89.99 for 5.5-6″ models. You can check out the collectibles website or download a copy of Infinity Blade III for $6.99 from the app store today to start creating.

Infinity Blade III has received still one more massive content update (they’re up to what, like 3 now?). This one is called “Blade Masters” and features – you guessed it – a couple of nasty new Deathless to deal with.
The Collector is a connoisseur of weapons who travels the world in search of the best. If you can defeat him you’ll earn a rare weapon, but fail and he’ll take yours from you! Ryth (from the second game) also makes a return and has something of an axe to grind. No pun intended.
In addition to the new baddies, Solar Trans weapons (kind of like lightsabers that are powerd by the sun) are also making a comeback, and now you can explore an entirely new path through the stronghold at Larioth using Isa. Of course there are even more goodies in this update, but I don’t want to spoil everything, do I? On top of all that, they’ve also reduced the price for a limited time.
You can download Infinity Blade III now for $2.99, with the Blade Masters update available for free to those who already own the game.

A lot has changed since Infinity Blade III first came out. In only a few short months a fair amount of content has been added to Siris and Isa’s rather bleak world, including the ability to replay beaten stages (finally). Now the duo have even more to worry about with the Ausar Rising add-on releasing today.
The new update is available for free, and adds quite a few extras fans are sure to enjoy (see below for a full list). In addition, Infinity Blade III is now on sale for a limited time for 50% off, which rounds out to just $2.99. Not much of a reason to wait any longer, is there?
INFINITY BLADE III: Ausar Rising
– Play through 3 new quests: Siris and Isa come face to face with the ultimate embodiment of evil – a soulless Ausar the Vile!
– Travel to where it all began – the Dark Citadel (the original Infinity Blade I castle), Siris’ home in Drem’s Maw, and the legendary Plains of Koroth.
– Battle 9 new enemies, including a ferocious new Dragon.
– New Mode: THE ARENA – How long can you survive in the Arena? Do you claim your prize now, or risk it for ever increasing rewards?
– New Hardcore Mode: DEATHLESS QUESTS – The ultimate way for the ultimate Infinity Blade gamer to play the game!
– Trade tips and secrets with your friends via the all-new in-game chat feature.
– Over 60 new items for both Isa and Siris, including weapons, shields, helmets, magic rings, and armor to collect, master, and sell.
– Unlock 8 new Skills: Remove equipped Gems for free, double Chips earned in Battle Challenges, cast super boosted Magic, and more!
– New Goals, Potions, and Gems.
– New Holiday Helmets for Isa and Siris.

Infinity Blade III is set to get a new update this Thursday, December 19, bringing a new free expansion for all users to download. Ausar Rising features environments from the original Infinity Blade castle, and lets players obtain the sixth and final infinity weapon. The update also lets users fight a new dragon, play a higher difficulty mode, earn the ability to level up weapons to level 20, and much more.
The week is almost over, and the holidays are that much closer, but those gifts won’t find/buy/wrap/give themselves now will they? Thankfully there are people like us putting together handy-dandy holiday shopping guides for you! Whether you’re looking for new hardware and accessories, or just something a bit less impersonal than an iTunes gift card, we’ve got you covered.
Today’s guide centers around iOS gamers. These are the folks who love their portable games and spend most of their morning commute matching pieces of candy or fighting immortal titans. If you’d like to make the gamer(s) in your life have an overall more pleasant and convenient gaming experience, or simply get them some really cool stuff to play, check out our list below for some ideas.
MOGA Ace Power Gamepad
The MOGA Ace Power Gamepad ($99 – iPhone/iPod Touch) has several distinct advantages over the other controllers in this list: it’s collapsible so it’s easy to carry while still acting as an extension of the iOS device, it’s the first official MFi gamepad for iOS devices, it uses dual analog sticks in addition to buttons and a D-pad, and it comes with its own battery that will help to extend the amount of time iOS gamers can play things while away from home – or at least a charger. The noticeable downsides are that it’s rather heavy thanks to the internal battery, and it doesn’t support portrait orientation. [Our Review]
While you’re considering the MOGA Ace Power Gamepad, you should probably also think about software to go with it. I’d recommend Oceanhorn ($8.99 – Universal), Dead Trigger 2 (Free – Universal), and Silverfish ($1.99 – iPhone) since all three are not only good games in their own right but also confirmed to be compatible. I’m sure there are plenty of other games out there that will work with it as well, but if you’re trying to put some sort of package together it would probably be best to stick with what you know will work.
MOTO TC Rally
There’s also the option to mix things up and use and iOS device as the controller for something else, rather than attaching a physical controller to it – hence the MOTO TC Rally ($99 – iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch). This is more than just a RC car with an iOS controller: the free app used to control it adds quite a few gaming elements to the physical racing. Users can race their friends and cause virtual damage -that actually affects performance- through special impact sensors, use power-ups, customize their car’s performance and more.
LEGO Mindstorms EV3
The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit ($349 – iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) is another great option for those looking to venture a little off the beaten path. I mean it lets users basically build whatever the want, then control it with their iPhone or iPad. How cool is that? It’s got the universal LEGO appeal, the remote control angle, and taps into those creative juices for potentially limitless amounts of fun. [Our Review]
iKit NuCharge Battery Case for iPhone 5
The iKit NuCharge Battery Case ($89 – iPhone) is certainly something to consider for the iPhone 5 or 5s gamers in your life. The lightweight case doesn’t block any ports, and it allows users to recharge their phone on the go. Perfect for lengthy trips or holiday visits with relatives where someone (not naming any names here) inevitably forgets to bring their charging cable. [Our Review]
What games go best with a phone-charging battery case? Battery hogs. There are a fair number of them out there and they can usually be picked out by their super-pretty graphics. A couple of great-looking (and just plain great) games you might want to consider are Warhammer Quest ($4.99 – Universal) and, of course, Infinity Blade III ($6.99 – Universal). However, XCOM: Enemy Unknown ($19.99 – Universal) is by far the biggest battery-muncher and would definitely benefit from something like the iKit NuCharge case.
Mophie Juice Pack Pro
The Mophie Juice Pack Pro ($129 – iPhone) may not be the most elegant-looking case, but what it lacks in style it makes up for in functionality. This is one very durable charging case that will keep batteries going longer and protect the phone from minor splash, dust, and more serious impact hazards. It’s a good fit for camping trips or gamers who are particularly brutal with their devices. [Our Review]
The Mophie Juice Pack is another charging case, sure, but it’s also quite durable. So it should be able to stand up to a little punishment when you toss your phone across the room after a particularly rough game of Tilt to Live 2 ($2.99 – Universal) or Pivvot ($2.99 – Universal), and will let World War II turn-based airplane strategy buffs like our own Andrew Stevens keep playing Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies ($4.99 – Universal) through just about any harsh weather conditions.
Ultimate Ears Mini Boom
Doubtless we all know at least one audiophile, and the Ultimate Ears Mini Boom speaker ($99 – iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) is definitely something to consider for them. It’s easy to connect to any device via bluetooth, is durable, a good size for travel, and produces some impressive sounds even by itself. It’s a great way to enhance anyone’s iOS gaming experience. [Our Review]
Of course if you’re looking to get some nice speakers, you may want a game or two to go with it that put the enhanced sound to good use. I’d recommend The Last Door – Chapter 2: Memories ($1.99 – iPad) for those who love a good scare as it’s a ridiculously creepy game without any audio enhancement whatsoever, so you can imagine what some high-quality speakers will do to it. Home ($2.99 – Universal) is another excellent choice for the same reason. LEGO Lord of the Rings ($4.99 – Universal) is another good option because, come on, who doesn’t want to hear that epic score and the official movie dialogue on something more substantial than their iPhone/iPad speaker?
