There's a reasonable possibility that you're wondering what both inXile
are. The former is the company responsible for the amusing RPG The Bard's Tale
, the console versions of Line Rider
and not much else. Choplifter
, for the uninitiated, is a series of video games (first released in 1982) in which players had to pilot a helicopter behind enemy lines and rescue hostages. Also, as a sidenote, it was really fun.
With that out of the way: GameSpot
reports that inXile has filed a new trademark
, listing it specifically in the category of "downloadable electronic games via the Internet and wireless devices." As such, it sounds like a new version of choplifter might be headed to services like XBLA or PSN. We also wouldn't be surprised if it showed up as a new iPhone title either.
Whatever inXile is doing with the franchise, let's hope the game doesn't stray too far from its roots. A 2D/3D makeover å la Bionic Commando Rearmed
would suit us just fine.
