Following Apple’s announcement of the new iPad’s Retina display, EA revealed that it is busy working to update its best selling apps so that they take advantage of the third-generation iPad’s higher screen resolution.

“Apple is once again pushing the boundaries forward and as a developer and publisher, we thrive on that opportunity,” Nick Earl, SVP of Global Mobile and Social Studios at Electronic Arts told Macworld.

“We’re already working on versions of Mass Effect Infiltrator and Real Racing 2 among other games that will take full advantage of the new iPad’s capabilities-expect even more stunning graphics and intense action.”

Mass Effect Infiltrator, released March 6, is currently Apple’s iPad Game of the Week, and is number ten in the Top Paid iPad Apps chart.

Apple has also been working on its apps, rolling out updates that add Retina display support in preparation for the new iPad’s launch on March 16.

Apple announced its third-generation iPad on March 8, which, alongside its 2048-by-1536 pixel screen resolution, also has a 5-megapixel camera, a new, dual-core A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processing unit (GPU), 4G LTE support, Voice Dictation, and more.
