It was kind of a slow week for the Apple App Store, especially after last week which was filled with both successful and failed reboots, big sequels and a new Star Wars title. Here are some of this week's major announcements you may have missed, and few new interesting looking App Store releases.
Ironhide Game Studio teased a new Kingdom Rush title on its blog and social media. Ironhide didn't release any major details about the fourth game in the series, but they did deliver this small hint:
"One thing is for sure, the bad guys shall have their revenge....muahaha."
Ironhide said more details about Kingdom Rush 4 will be released in the "upcoming months."
Another game announced this week was a new puzzle title called, Splitter Critters. The goal of the game is rearrange reality to safely get your critters home. It's a really interesting concept that you have to see to understand. Here is a gameplay video that was released to YouTube by RAC7 Games.
And of course the biggest announcement this week once again came from Nintendo. The video game maker announced its second mobile game will be Fire Emblem: Heroes. You can see the full 19-minute announcement video below. Fire Emblem: Heroes will be released for both iOS and Android on February 2.
