c64_previewManomio, developers of the fully licensed and super fantastic Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhone have made an announcement on their Twitter stream that they have been contacted by a senior director at Apple and have some good news coming. We can only guess that this means that they have gotten the go ahead from Apple and will be getting the C64 emulator approved!

This is exciting news and, quite honestly, somewhat unexpected. Emulation is one of the things that while explicitly against the rules for app store approval, has been approved in such cases as the classic Sega games recently released. But emulation apps by smaller developers have been rejected in the past. It’s most likely the huge grass roots effort by Commodore 64 lovers that has gotten this effort moving, and we presume now, approved.

Until it’s available, which will hopefully be soon, here’s a short video that shows all of the fantastic work they have done to give you an idea of what’s to come.

It looks fantastic, I can’t wait to grab it when it hits the app store. We’ll let you know as soon as we see it in the app store or hear more.
