Iron Maiden originally collaborated with Amon Amarth in their Legacy Of The Beast mobile game, but they're not done yet! The band is now back with a second collaboration, this time with Lacuna Coil in a new event called The Search For The Black Anima. The event includes a Lacuna Coil-influenced character named the Shadow Sorceress, who of course is working alongside Iron Maiden's Eddie mascot.
"My first experience with Iron Maiden was about 30 years ago, I picked up Piece Of Mind because I was really impressed by the cover," said vocalist Cristina Scabbia.
"They sounded like nothing I had heard before then and it was instant love. I've always been attracted to video games; they're awesome as they project you into a different dimension and allow you to live a different life, even if for a short moment. I prefer games with a storyline because I like to be embraced by it, get familiar with the characters I am playing with and get involved at the maximum level."
Check out more over at The Legacy of the Beast website. Players will be able to earn the Shadow Sorceress character between June 7 and July 5.
