Square Enix announces Sliding Heroes, an iPhone RTS

While we'd hoped Square Enix's trademark for the title Sliding Heroes would result in a rhythm-based playground toy simulator (with the appropriate inclined peripheral), a Facebook fan page for the game revealed its true format. The game will be an iPhone real-time strategy title where players control standard fantasy archetypes (mage, warrior, cleric, etc.) by tilting their cellular device. In addition to conquering baddies, players will need to deftly avoid traps and hazards placed throughout the game board.

That description (and a pair of screenshots) are all we have to go on right now. Keep an eye on Square Enix's Facebook page for more information about this traction-free strategy title.
