No matter how you slice it, Infinity Blade II is a pretty gorgeous game, but it'll look amazing on your third-generation iPad's Retina Display. Chair Entertainment just updated the hack-and-slash adventure with 2048 x 1536 higher-resolution graphics, ahead of the new iPad launch tomorrow morning. While you might rather have the brand-new Infinity Blade: Dungeons to play instead, we'd definitely be happy to revisit the picturesque environs of the second game in the series while we're waiting for Chair's dungeon crawler. Take a peek at a full-res 2048 x 1536 screenshot of the game in this ZIP, or a slightly smaller one right here in your browser window.

Update: As pretty as that 2048 x 1536 screenshot might look, Chair tells us that it isn't quite running at the full native resolution of the iPad 3. "It has received a nice boost," a company rep tells us, but it sounds like that's in conjunction with some kind of upscaling as well. We'd welcome such a "boost" in all games from here on out.
