Revolution Software -- the team behind Beneath a Steel Sky and its recent (and tremendous) iPhone remake -- announced Broken Sword: The Director's Cut will be remastered for iPhone and iPod Touch devices and released within the next month. Like the (already available) Nintendo DS and Wii versions of the remake, Broken Sword: The Director's Cut for iPhone sports an updated look, Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) art and a redefined control scheme, thrusting the fourteen-year-old adventure game into the modern screen-tapping era.
In February 2009, Revolution Software founder Charles Cecil teased more classic remakes could potentially be explored if projects at the time saw commercial success. Considering how solid its first iPhone effort was, we're hoping this is the start of re-introducing gamers to the entire Broken Sword legacy. Now if someone would only remake the Gabriel Knight series, we'd sleep better at night.
