Console-centric Frontier Developments have made Kinectimals for the Xbox 360, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit game for PS2 and Xbox, and two LostWinds games for the Wii. Boss David Braben told Eurogamer that LostWinds, an enchanting little platformer for the Wii download service, is slated to come to the iPhone and iPad (as well as Android) later this year.

On the Wii platform, players use the motion controllers to flick, spin, and remove obstacles for Toku, the star of the piece. The whimsical visual design and emotional soundtrack make LostWinds on the Wii a go-to title in this household. It seems a no-brainer to translate the controls to a touch screen:

“It works very well with the Wii controller motions,” Braben told Eurogamer, “but it also works on a touch interface in a very similar fashion.” He continued on to say that plans are to port both LostWinds games to the mobile platforms, “to start.”
