Infinity Blade Saga has not been announced in the west by Chair, but was instead revealed by Chinese publisher TenCent, according to A9VG as translated by NeoGAF.

As the name suggests, Infinity Blade Saga features content from all three mobile Infinity Blade games to date, linked up together with a continuous storyline.

TenCent has produced a demo of the new game, which is playable with Kinect or a controller, and said it may release before Lunar New Year in February if government approvals go smoothly.

TenCent said it has a long-term development plan for Infinity Blade Saga, which suggests DLC or ongoing free updates, and will consider a PS4 version if the console comes to China.

There’s been no word on a western release and we don’t know how involved Chair is with the project. As you may recall, TenCent owns a 40% share in Epic, which is Chair’s parent company.

Thanks, Gematsu.
