Every time there’s a big upgrade in terms of the hardware on the devices we use, developers are eagerly working behind the scenes to produce their latest creation. Madfinger Games, the company behind the hugely popular Samurai II: Vengeance game that’s currently available on iOS devices has just thrown out some screenshots taken off (what we presume) is a Tegra 3 reference platform. We know we can expect a three to fivefold increase in terms of performance capability of these next generation devices. We know that all of the top tier manufacturers are actively in talks with Nvidia to get Tegra 3 on their next-gen devices.
The game is called SHADOWGUN and it is running on the Unity engine. The game itself is being created by Madfinger Games who did an excellent job on the amazing Samurai II: Vengeance game for the iPhone and iPad. Many have speculated that the Nexus 3 could be sporting the Tegra-3 chip and be one of the worlds first quad-core phone – but we still don’t have any official word – yet. Can things really get any better? Oh – and don’t forget that Android 3.1 has support for USB controllers too.
More details on the game:
Authored with the Unity development platform, SHADOWGUN combines tactical combat with third person harrowing action, ushering in a new visual standard for handheld gaming. SHADOWGUN puts players into the role of John Slade, a professional bounty hunter in the year 2350. Slade’s mission: hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, renowned geneticist and former employee of the trans-galactic corporation Toltech Enterprises. Players must lead “shadowgun” John Slade as he infiltrates Dr. Simon’s mountain fortress and fights his personal army of mutants, cyborgs, and genetically-enhanced humanoids. Using state-of-the-art weaponry, ships, and the assistance of S.A.R.A.—Slade’s personal android assistant. The story is written by award winning author Micah Nathan who has joined the MadFinger team as executive creative consultant for SHADOWGUN.
