Mass Effect, the popular console RPG, will be coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch. It will be taking a different approach than what we’re used to seeing from the game. A gamer was taking a survey on the upcoming game from EA and learned the following details:
…portable Mass Effect will feature Jacob Taylor, “a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization’s greatest beacon of hope.”
The mobile game will feature top-down shooter combat and a stylized, cartoonish look. The survey notes that Jacob’s Story will function as a predecessor to the upcoming Mass Effect 2, revealing some of the backstory of characters featured in the console game. The handheld adventure would be about two hours long and cost $2.99.
The new details are also accompanied by some screenshots of the game. Mass Effect is published by EA, the same company to put out games like Scrabble, Spore, and Sim City.
