Bladeslinger trailer shows off Unity Engine’s chops

Everyone’s talking about this new teaser trailer for Unity-powered iOS and Android game, Bladeslinger, in which you play a stabbin’, shootin’ magic casting cowboy while repeatedly exclaiming “is this really on an iPhone?” Check it out through the break.

Gameplay seen in the trailer looks fairly similar to the iDevice’s other major graphical triumph, the Unreal-based Infinity Blade, and some of the first environments share a more than thematically justified appearance with Red Dead Redemotion, but you can’t argue with the prettiness.

According to TouchArcade, developer Luma Arcade reckons this is how the game will look on current-gen devices, and feature multi-opponent brawling action and hours of gameplay.

The game is expected to launch later this year.
