Shadowgun: The future of mobile gaming looks like this

Dual and quad-core gaming will arrive looking like this. That’s according to the makers of Samurai 2: Vengeance, who have released these samples from their upcoming mobile game, Shadow Gun.

The game, which looks like it’ll involve big men with guns, is being developed for both iOS devices, like the iPhone and iPad, as well as Tegra-powered smartphones like LG’s Optimus 2X and Motorola’s Atrix and Xoom. The third-person shooter bears a more-than-passing resemblence to XBox shooter, Gears of War.

According to their site, Shadowgun is played out in the role of John Slade; bounty hunter. He needs to hunt down renowned geneticist Dr. Edgar Simon, but between the two of them stands a whole load of mutants, cyborgs, and several other things inbetween.

Perhaps the most interesting news is that the games is already being developed for Nvidia’s quad-core chips possibly found in future devices. That’s some forward thinking.

Nvidia’s Ashu Rege, Vice President of Game Content and Technology, said: “Shadowgun shows off the console-quality experience that Tegra is bringing to Android devices. We’re especially excited that Madfinger is creating a special version of Shadowgun that’s optimized for multi-core processors and will take advantage of the processing and graphics power of Project Kal-El.”

The game looks set to arrive on Android and Apple devices later this year.
