Iron Maiden Live Show Elevates Mobile Gaming in a Genre Defining Industry First

Nothing like a little gaming news to send you off to the land of nod, unless you are me and keep vampires hours and will not be hitting the bed for another few hours. This is the latest brief on the mobile game “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast” which has proven to be quite a hit and if you are a fan of this you should read on.

The Press Release:

Mobile games publisher Nodding Frog and heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN are proud to announce the arrival of a new PvP arena to their ‘Legacy of the Beast’ game – in a global first and representing an unparalleled level of integration in the mobile space, the arena was designed in tandem with Iron Maiden’s actual touring stage set, drawing on fantastical cathedral architecture to create a show stopping environment in-game and on the band’s current 38 date European tour.

Players of the game can also look forward to the introduction of ‘Beast Eddie’, the latest incarnation of the band’s famous mascot and star of their game, alongside many other new characters from the world of Iron Maiden making debut appearances in the game to celebrate their representation in the 2018 set list. Over the coming months fans can expect the arrival of favourites such as Icarus, Two Minutes to Midnight Eddie and Killers Eddie. Clansman Eddie was introduced to the game in the weeks leading up to the tour, prompting wild fan speculation over the track appearing on the setlist!

‘Legacy of the Beast’ continues to push boundaries in the mobile gaming space, reimagining Iron Maiden’s own album art, music, lyrics, and now integrating elements of their live shows with a real- time character campaign that spans the duration of the tour – an unprecedented expansion giving both fans of the band and fantasy RPG gamers a seminal experience on mobile devices.

Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management said “Our development team have outdone themselves, producing an incredible representation of Iron Maiden’s latest live show in our Legacy of the Beast mobile game, offering fans old and new another exciting way to engage with the band’s music, theatrics, and their mascot Eddie, long after the encore!”.

Players of the game can look forward to many more significant new features and characters to collect over the coming months, including ‘Gauntlet’, Social Chat and the much anticipated ‘Night City’ game world and cast – inspired by Maiden’s early music catalogue and fledgling East London roots.

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is a definitive experience in the mobile gaming space – inviting players into an ever-expanding dark fantasy RPG via their smartphones & tablets. The unparalleled integration of Iron Maiden’s creative output has seen the game and its characters featured on the side of Maiden’s own 747, on bottle tops of their 20 million pint selling Trooper beer, on the iconic black t-shirts, shown in cinematic trailers at live shows, in a comic book of the same name, reimagined as miniature collectable figurines, a pinball machine and now as titular inspiration for their 2018 European Tour which began in Tallinn, Estonia on Saturday 26th May 2018.

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, is available now for free on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

About Iron Maiden: With over 90 million album sales, more than 2000 live performances in 63 countries, millions of fans worldwide and 16 studio albums of unerring quality and power to their name, Iron Maiden have more than earned their proudly-held status as one of the most influential and revered bands of all time. Their last world tour, 2016/17’s The Book Of Souls covered 39 countries across six continents playing to well over two million fans, with the band travelling on their customized Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet piloted by vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The band has recently extended its legacy in a couple of other areas of particular interest to them: their own beer, Trooper, widely acknowledged as the most successful international British beer launch of the past twenty years with Cheshire family brewers Robinsons and; a mobile game entitled Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast – a free to play, fantasy RPG where players combat the legions of darkness across time and space as the band’s mascot ‘Eddie’. The game is both inspired by, and features, the art & music of, Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden embarked upon a 38 date tour of Europe entitled ‘Legacy of the Beast’ in May 2018.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve shared some posts about it over the last year or so, I’ve not played this in awhile but that is not because of my disinterest as much as its that I am NOT a gamer at all. I barely play my games of Words With Friends on my mobile and it must be why I keep losing my matches but I digress. The “Legacy Of The Beast” game really looks great and a lot of work has been put into it. If you are a fan of Maiden (and you should be if you read this website), then you should download this to your device of choice. I’d love for the thing to be available for the PS3 gaming systems since I’d rather play this on my television than on a smaller screen. What do you readers think about this if you have given it a shot yet. Chime in down below.

Behold: Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast Official Cinematic Trailer

You might remember this from about a month or so ago when I shared a new press release from Nodding Frog Limited folks about the upcoming Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast mobile game. Well now we have a trailer so check it out along with the copy they sent us media type folks.

“IT’S HERE! The big unveiling of our kick ass trailer for Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast. Here’s a taste of the story and a look at Eddie as he enters the universe of Legacy of The Beast. (Quick note – as the game’s still under wraps, this is a specially created animated HD trailer built by the development team from in-game models, but not actual game footage).

The story so far…A mysterious force is intent on destroying Eddie, shattering his soul into a million shards. He begins his journey blindsided and stripped of his power, yet still possessing just enough fury to fuel his fight. With each victory, he regains more power and strength, collecting the shards of his soul, supercharging his skills and electrifying his attitude! Bear witness below.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Back then I maintained that this made me think fondly of the “Ed Hunter” CD because it was not only a kick ass greatest hits collection but it had a gaming CD component to it as well. It was a first person shooter like “Doom” but from the looks of the trailer we are in for one massive treat. I’ll keep sharing the updates as I see them and until that time keep checking your Facebook timeline every forty seconds to let us know your every move and taking photos of the food you are eating because you know those friends who hate that stuff need to be kept annoyed. For now I will be honing my skills on the mobile with continued haphazard practice on “Subway Surfer” and “Hungry Shark” and to keep me thinking I have just installed “Bejewelled” and “Scrabble”. Now I will ask again, what do you readers think of this pending development? Will you be keeping some necessary space on your device by limiting your photos of food, drink and the ever prominent selfie? Let us know in the comments section and until we see “Iron Maiden Legacy Of The Beast” in the Google Play Store (we are Android users here) I leave you with a rousing “Up The Irons”.
