First Horn movie released, mobile to “replace” console

By Patrick Garratt, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 09:31 GMT

Phosphor Games has released a first trailer for core iOS action adventure Horn, to be released in partnership with Zynga, with the developer insisting that tablets and mobile are set to “replace” consoles.

The video shows a cartoon fantasy action-adventure involving sword combat.

“Mobile and tablet systems are quickly becoming to main way people play games, replacing consoles,” said Phosphor’s Chip Sineni. “The problem is that gamers aren’t finding the game they like to play on mobile.”

He added: “We saw a real lack of action-adventure games on mobile, so we created Horn.”

There’s no release date. The game was announced overnight.
