Firemint never drags its feet when it comes to updating its apps to support new Apple tech.

The Australia-based outfit's Pocket Gamer Platinum Award-winning racer Real Racing 2, for example, was the first iOS title to feature support for Apple's AirPlay functionality.

It was also one of the first titles to take advantage of the iPad 2's spec bump.

With Apple's new iPad less than a day away from launch, EA, which acquired Firemint last year, has released a statement that reveals several of its games will be updated to support the tablet's Retina display.

Statement of intent

"Apple constantly pushes the boundaries of technology and EA thrives on that. The new iPad is going to evolve mobile games by bringing them that much closer to a home entertainment experience and that opens up tremendous possibilities - both for development and for consumers," the statement reads.

"We're already working on versions of Mass Effect Infiltrator and Real Racing 2 among other games that will take full advantage of the new iPad capabilities - expect even more stunning graphics and intense action."

We will, of course, let you know as soon as the updates hit Apple's App Store.
