EA has revealed that it is working on an iPhone/iPod touch version of their 2008 action adventure game Mirror’s Edge, due for release in January.

The view shifts from first to third person for this instalment, but apparently still retains the fluid roof hopping acrobatic movements of protagonist Faith. EA hopes you’ll be burning through 14 levels of the “fastest most fluid action imaginable”, and since there’s little else to go on I guess we’ll just have to take their word for it.

Of course, it’s not the first time we’ve seen a different version of the game. A 2D side scrolling Flash game was released alongside the main game and can be played at MirrorsEdge2d.com. However, unlike the Flash version this iteration will feature 3D graphics and “Dynamic camera angles”. I just hope that it’s easy to play on the bus to work.

The full blurb is below, along with a bunch of screenshots.

  • 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.
