Though many developers were initially tight-lipped about when they would release optimized games for the new iPad--now that the device is here--the news has started rolling in.

Gameloft announced today that four popular games, Order and Chaos Online, Modern Combat: Fallen Nation, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, and Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, are now optimized for Apple's Retina Display and ready for the new iPad.

Coming from four different genres, the four games now updated for the iPad have already seen huge success in the iTunes App Store. Order and Chaos Online is an expansive MMO that strongly resembles Blizzard's World of Warcraft. Modern Combat: Fallen Nation is a first-person shooter with online multiplayer, and already looked great on older devices. Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is a 3D arcade racing game with tons of tracks and cars to unlock. The fourth game is Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, a 3D sandbox game where you complete missions to gain money and power in the dangerous underworld of Rio.

With only about a 10 days since the new iPad was announced, Gameloft probably didn't have time to optimize all of its huge catalog of games, but it seems the company wanted to get its most popular games ready as soon as possible for the new device.

All four games are available now at the iTunes App Store. It's also important to note that Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation (along with several other Gameloft titles, but not including the other three listed here), is usually $6.99, but is currently on sale for 99 cents , as reported earlier today by Rick Broida.
