We recently reported that EA Mobile will be bringing Mirror's Edge to the iPhone in January 2010. The console version of Mirror's Edge was a pretty ground-breaking title, but wasn't a huge hit commercially, so it's nice to see that EA has not abandoned the promising franchise. A trailer has been released to go along with the first batch of action shots, and it looks every bit as thrilling.
Mirror's Edge has already been successfully re-imagined as a 2D Flash game, which can be played at http://mirrorsedge2d.com. It'll be very interesting to see how the iphone version, as a 3D side-scroller, will fit between the two. Here's the official feature list released by EA:
EXPERIENCE THE WORLD OF MIRROR'S EDGE
A place where information is heavily monitored and law is brutally enforced in an effort to create the 'perfect' society.
Take control of Faith Connors, a member of an underground messenger group known as Runners, as she races to stop a deadly threat that has grown from within their own ranks.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST AND FASTEST
Use Faith's incredible acrobatic moves to outmaneuver the enemy--run on walls, slide down precarious ramps, ride ziplines, and leap between rooftops. Leave the enemy in your dust.
Burn through 14 levels of the fastest, most fluid action imaginable. Dynamic camera angles capture the intense action of this unique game.
HEIGHTEN YOUR SENSES
Immerse yourself in a stylish, graphically rich 3D environment flooded with realistic sound effects and phenomenal music.
