Kotaku reports on a rumor that LEGO Batman will be coming to the iPhone. The original source of the information is Pocketgamer which is not available at the time of this writing. Few other details presently available but Kotaku speculates that the iPhone's multi-touch could be used to its advantage:

The possibilities for manipulating LEGO bricks using multi-touch gestures could make for an interesting twist on the LEGO gameplay. Even if it is just a port of the DS version, though, it should be worth checking out providing the thorny issue of lack of D-Pad is resolved.

LEGO Batman is an upcoming game that is scheduled to be released on multiple platforms on September 23rd. In the game players will be able to fight on land, sea and in the air using the Batmobile, Batboat and Batwing.

    I enjoyed the original star wars lego game on PS2, and I'm just a sucker for anything Batman or Lego. So I'm gonna buy it even if it sucks :)

    That said, I can imagine that multitouch would be well-suited to this type of game - move & remove blocks, throw 'em, etc. And I don't see why they couldn't implement a d-pad but who knows if it'll work well with in gameplay.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing more bigname companies start releasing titles on the iPhone. It's nice to get some really full featured software.

    yeah, the d-pad can be what we see on other games
    Full landscape view with a see-through d pad in the corner or something would be awesome. I really hope this isn't just a rumour.
    Game owns + it's b a t m a n >:D

    I think some of these companies could make a killing making these games available to the iphone, could you imagine if they made some type of connection between an iphone version and the version you have like for the xbox, ps3, etc.....

    Sounds cool, hope they come up with a way to play without a D-pad. Another good Lego game for the iPhone would be Lego Racers.
