In The Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, gamers will play for the band’s famous mascot Eddie. Going through quests and fighting with opponents, including The Beast, The Wicker Man, Horus and The Axis General, a player will reclaim the shards of Eddie’s shattered soul.
The game was created by Nodding Frog, 50cc Games and Roadhouse Interactive in close collaboration with the band’s musicians and management. The gameplay is complemented by the soundtrack made up of Iron Maiden’s hits. Players will also hear rare, previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics adapted for the game under the close scrutiny of bassist and founding member Steve Harris.
Steve Harris сomments: "We’ve always wanted to make a quality Maiden mobile game as we think the combination of Eddie and the music is so well suited – and it’s a great way to get our music out to a new audience! When the opportunity arose to make a mobile game which our fans, along with hopefully a lot of the gaming community, can play pretty well anywhere in the world, we jumped at it. The whole band visited Roadhouse while touring through Vancouver back in April and we were so impressed by the creativity, enthusiasm and passion of the team there. Visually, the worlds and character designs do us proud and the music just ties it all together."
Last year, Iron Maiden’s musicians presented the game based on the music video "Speed Of Light".
