Epic president Mike Capps took the stage at the Apple’s fall showcase today, to announce Project Sword for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Project Sword, which is just the codename at the moment, is currently in development with Chair Entertainment (Shadow Complex), and is a sword fighting game which focuses on 1-on-1 battles in a medieval setting.

Upon release, the game will contain multiplayer and Achievement support through Apple’s Game Center.

A demo of the castle featured in the Project Sword demonstration is now available on iTunes for both iPhone and iPad – through the link it’s being called Epic Citadel, and thanks to Unreal 3, it looks awesome.

The game itself is slated for release this year.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    “sword fighting game which focuses on 1-on-1 battles in a medieval setting.”

    Oh. Not interested, then.

    Downloaded the Epic Citadel app last night. I must say I am blown away by the graphics Epic have managed to crank out of iOS4. Unbelievable really. All realtime and huge draw distances and detailed textures. Puts most iOS games to shame. Thanks Epic for stepping it up a notch. This game should be pretty sweet, with emphasis on pretty.
