“Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the beast with wrath,
Because he knows the time is short… Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number, Its number is Six hundred and sixty six.”

“As a lifelong Iron Maiden fan, I am exceptionally proud of Legacy Of The Beast and excited to launch it globally. It has been a privilege to work so closely withIron Maiden and their management. With this game, I believe that we have created an outstanding, authentic RPG experience to appeal to all mobile gamers, including those discovering the band for the first time.”
“We’ve always wanted to make a quality Iron Maiden mobile game as we think the combination of Eddie and the music is so well suited — and it’s a great way to get our music out to a new audience! When the opportunity arose to make a mobile game which our fans, along with hopefully a lot of the gaming community, can play pretty well anywhere in the world, and download for free at that, we jumped at it. The whole band visited Roadhouse while touring through Vancouver back in April and we were so impressed by the creativity, enthusiasm and passion of the team there. Visually, the worlds and character designs do us proud and the music just ties it all together.”
