Updated on September 10th, at 19:01: We've added the first screenshots from Infinity Blade III, below. And the game's release date: September 18th. That's soon.

Chair Entertainment has hijacked Apple's iPhone 5S and 5C event to unveil Infinity Blade III - the "epic conclusion of the Infinity Blade trilogy".

Those rumours were true, then.

The upcoming touchscreen monster brawler lets you play as one of two characters, explore huge areas to your heart's content, and fight dragons - Skyrim style.

If you're lucky enough to be playing on the newly announced 5S, Chair will take advantage of that nifty OpenGL ES 3.0 tech to play with JJ Abrams-style lens flare, and accurately render a dragon's fiery breath.

The game will be available in the App Store on September 18th as a Universal app, priced £4.99 / $6.99.

Infinity Blade III will be compatible with iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad with Retina display (iPad 4), the new iPad (iPad 3), iPad mini, the fifth-gen iPod touch, and the fourth-gen iPod touch.
