Gameloft recently posted a preview video of its upcoming iPhone port of their Sims-like mobile title New York Nights: Success in the City.

In the rather well reviewed mobile title, as Gamespot describes it...

...you assume the identity of a sim-like character that goes through the course of a daily 12:00pm-to-4:00am grind. During this time, you must improve yourself, advance your career, and find love, all before running through Mom and Dad's money. Should you fail, it's back to Alabama, a fate worse than any traditional "game over" screen. New York Nights gives you a remarkable amount to do, and it gives you an intuitive interface with which to do it. An enthralling, eminently accessible game...

New York Nights is a highly addictive game that will appeal to fans of The Sims. It succeeds for all the reasons its progenitors do, but in addition, the game includes a cast of well-developed characters, each with his or her own distinct personality. While New York Nights isn't the most innovative game, it executes extremely well on an established formula. New York Nights isn't The Sims' poor cousin; it's its distinguished brother-in-law.

See Gameloft's trailer of the iPhone version of New York Nights.

While no price has been set, as yet, the game is set to debut in the App Store by month's end.  Stay tuned for a much closer look once it goes live.

    Reminds me a bit of Holden Caulfield for some reason. If it's around $5, consider this a sale!

    Sounds cool, but I won't be rushing to purchase this day one, as I have been stung once with a rapid Gameloft price drop around a week after release.

    Once bitten, twice shy as they say...
