Halfbrick has released a trailer to showcase one of the new gadgets that you'll be able to get your hands on in the company's forthcoming Jetpack Joyride update, which is scheduled to hit the App Store later this month.

The Coin Magnet gadget, which will be available to buy in the game's Stash area, will allow you to attract and collect those shiny coins that litter this endless-flyer. These coins can be spent on new costumes, jetpacks, and even more gadgets.

Last month, Halfbrick released a bunch of videos that showed off three of the other gadgets set to debut in the v1.3 update: the Gravity Belt, the Freeze-O-Matic gun, and the Air Barrys sneakers.

You'll be able to mix and match any two gadgets of your liking to help you achieve your goals.

Check out the Coin Magnet in the video below. Jetpack Joyride is available on the App Store as a Universal app for free.
