Iron Maiden are not fucking around when it comes to their video game Legacy of the Beast — not only did the game inspire the band's current career-spanning tour of the same name, but now the tour has inspired the game, specifically it's new PvP arena. The NWOBHM pioneers and mobile games publisher Nodding Frog have revealed a new Legacy of the Beast "cathedral" arena that was designed in tandem with Iron Maiden's actual touring stage set, in an apparent global first when it comes to integration in the mobile space.
They've also introduced a new incarnation of Maiden's iconic mascot "Beast Eddie," alongside many other new characters from the world of Iron Maiden making debut appearances in the game to celebrate their representation in the 2018 set list. Over the coming months fans can expect the arrival of Icarus, Two Minutes to Midnight Eddie and Killers Eddie.
"Our development team have outdone themselves," commented Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management, "producing an incredible representation of Iron Maiden's latest live show in our Legacy of the Beast mobile game, offering fans old and new another exciting way to engage with the band's music, theatrics, and their mascot Eddie, long after the encore!"
Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, is available now for free on Apple's App Store and Google Play.
