The Sims Heading to the iPhone

A post from EA Mobile in their forum…

The Sims 3 (iPhone/iPod touch) – Screenshots and Info

…provides details and screenshots (one of the four they provide is seen above) about the upcoming The Sims for iPhone. I’m more of SimCity fan myself. But, I’ll guess that The Sims has, at this point, far outsold the SimCity series. Where SimCity takes a macro view of the life of an entire city, The Sims provides a micro view of individual people in a city (neighborhood).

Here are the features EA Mobile mentions in their forum thread…

– Over 10 hours of gameplay filled with hysterical antics and unexpected moments of surprise
– New beautiful 3D visuals
– Support for iPhone specific controls (touch and accelerometer)
– Explore an ever-changing neighborhood with new open world gameplay
– Enjoy smarter Sims with deeper personalities, wishes and goals
– Create your own Sim, complete with different hair styles, clothes, personalities and more
– Keep your Sims busy with 4 fun mini-games including fishing, gardening, cooking, and house repairs
– Develop complex relationships with other Sims as you fall in love, make friends or rebel against the neighborhood

UPDATE: EA Mobile responded via Twitter that they are looking at an early June release for The Sims for iPhone.
