Quatro grandes franquias da Konami ganharão versões para o iPhone em breve, comunicou a empresa: Metal Gear Solid Touch, Silent Hill: The Escape, DanceDanceRevolution S Lite e Frogger.

Uma versão de DRR certamente faz mais sentido, ainda que dedadas na tela não possam se comparar à experiência em um tapete de dança. Se Metal Gear Solid e Silent Hill forem bem-feitos, a plataforma pode ganhar respeito dos gamers “hardcore mobile” (se é que mortes por dedadas serão algum dia vistas como hardcore). Quanto ao Frogger, que animal, vou jogar com certeza.
