Destructoid reports today that EA Mobile’s iOS version of Dead Space will be coming to the App Store on January 25, which just happens to be the exact same day that the Dead Space 2 console game hits the shelves. According to the Destructoid report, the Dead Space iOS game, which will be compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, will have a storyline that bridges the gap between the first and second console games. Also, unlike the Wii spin-off from the series, Dead Space Extraction, which was an on-rails shooter, the iOS Dead Space game will be a regular third-person action game, using touch-anywhere controls to move the main character. Weapons will also be upgradable as per the console games.
The fact that EA is launching an all-new standalone game that fills in a vital part of the back-story of such an epic gaming franchise on the same day as the long-awaited console sequel is yet another example of the important part that iOS devices now play in the games industry. And just take a look at the screenshot released from the iPad version by EA Mobile – very nice indeed!
