Gameloft Unveils New iOS Controller by Duo Games

In a recent collaboration, Gameloft and Duo Games have unveiled the Duo Gamer controller, a new Bluetooth-enabled game controller for iOS devices. This innovative device, which includes a stand for iPads, is equipped with a d-pad, four buttons, and two analog sticks, enhancing gameplay with features typically found on traditional gaming consoles.

The controller is designed to integrate seamlessly with all of Gameloft’s popular iOS games.

This includes high-profile game series such as NOVA, Modern Combat, and the soon-to-be-released Wild Blood. These games, which draw inspiration from console gaming, will benefit significantly from the analog stick controls provided by the Duo Gamer controller.

While the API specifics are not fully disclosed, it is hoped that the controller will be compatible with the iCade standard.

This would allow a broader range of developers to adapt their games for use with this device. Even if broader compatibility is not immediately available, the existing alignment with Gameloft’s titles ensures a substantial user base.
