For those who enjoy the thought of creeping around with a loaded weapon (in a virtual sense, of course), Gameloft has announced the upcoming release of Splinter Cell Conviction for iPhone.

The popular console franchise will arrive on the iPhone on May 27 and, from the looks of the video below, will bring a number of the exciting new features to iPhone screens.

Based around stealth and covert operations, you take on the role of the game’s hero Sam Fisher on a mission to avenge the death of his daughter. The game appears to offer an exciting new look and 3D world that brings the thrill of the console version to the iPhone’s handheld format.

Gameloft tells us that there are no concrete plans to introduce an iPad version of the game at the moment.

Check out the video below for a sample of what you can expect when the game is launched at the end of this month.

Note: we got a little hands on time with Splinter Cell Conviction on the iPhone a few days ago. Look for our preview coming up later this week. – ed.
