It's been 17 years since The Sims was first released on PC but finally (finally) the venerable social simulator is going mobile. EA announced on Wednesday that it is bringing its truest port of the game to date to Android and iOS.
This isn't the first time that EA has taken the Sims off the desktop. The company previously released The Sims Freeplay on mobile and The Sims Social on Facebook, though neither of those offered nearly the same depth of gameplay that this one is advertising. There's no word yet on when The Sims will be released or how much it will cost when it is.
