EA to mobile-ize Eidos franchises


EA announced today that it will create mobile versions of financially beleaguered Eidos Interactive's franchises. EA now holds the licenses to "all existing mobile channels and devices" for Tomb Raider Underworld, Just Cause 2, California Games X and Minesweeper. EA has the option of doing mobile versions of most Eidos games for the next three years.

The Tomb Raider and Just Cause titles will be based off the upcoming sequels, while California Games X will be a "brand new version" of the '87 Commodore 64 game (hacky sack, y'all!). Of course, Minesweeper is the game which has been packaged with Windows since 1992.
