Destructoid reports today that EA Mobileâ€™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 â€“ very nice indeed!
