Anyone still holding onto hope that Infinity Blade will be released for Android have one thing to get excited about today. Epic Games just released Epic Citadel in Google Play and the Amazon Appstore for free. Epic Citadel is the tech demo Epic Games revealed in 2010 as a way to showcase the graphical possibilities of Unreal Engine 3 on iOS. A few months later, Infinity Blade was released as the first game to take advantage of the Unreal Engine 3 that was showcased in Epic Citadel.

Naturally, we’re left wondering what Epic Citadel‘s appearance on Android platforms means for gaming. On one hand, it could be a prelude to the Android release of Infinity Blade. On the other hand, Epic could just be flexing its tech muscles to get mobile game developers to license the Unreal Engine for their games.

With Android making its way into more than just smartphones and tablets, it’s understandable why Epic would want to court more developers. With devices such as Ouya, Wikipad and Project Shield on the way, visually stunning games will be a necessity.
