Quite possibly one of the few prominent new IPs under EA’s belt, Mirror’s Edge has always been referred to as ‘that title that made EA look less like Activision’. In fact, the game was free-running parkour at its innovative best. Well, fans of Faith’s first foray will be glad to know that the franchise will also leap onto the iPhone in January next year.
Head inside for other tidbits and screenshots of the iPhone iteration.
Take the following description for what it’s worth, you know, considering its over-the-top description of everything.
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.
YOUR MISSION -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.
EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT EXCITEMENT – 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.
It doesn’t look half as sexy as the console versions, but at least they kept the flamboyant minimal colours intact.
