Earlier this summer, we caught word that Frontier Developments's LostWinds was headed to iOS and Android. Now, we've got a great first-look at the iOS version title in action -- and, guys, it's silly gorgeous.

Once an acclaimed WiiWare title, Frontier has obviously pushed the visuals to the max for our phones and tablets. And if you look, you'll notice that it's a fairly HUD-free port with specific touch actions, which has us thinking that we're actually in for an all mobiled-out experience.

No solid date or price point have been announced, but we do know that LostWinds is coming to every iDevice this holiday as a Universal app. Also, it'll ship with a "new map feature" specific to touch devices. Our popcorn is ready, for sure.

UPDATE: Yay, technology! The trailer we originally posted was cut short for some... reason. This is the full thing.

    This was a really fun game on wiiware! I already own it so i probably won't be buying it again but buy it if you have never played this 3ish hour long game.

    That looks beautiful. I've already decided to treat myself to Chrono Trigger over the holidays, but I might have to add this to my shopping list.

    I remember buying this on WiiWare, but never played it. Hopefully we'll also see LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias on iOS. I recently broke my hand though, so playing games will be a bit of a struggle.

      You know you're gaming way too aggressively if you break your hand.

    Awesome game on wiiware, as was the sequel. Having sold the wii a while back, I will definatelu be picking this gem up. And as a bonus it looks like they've actually thought about controls rather than just slapping a d-pad in there.

    ! What a beautiful game ! One of my favorites ever. Hopefully they release the second soon after this, because it is even better and it deserves to get more players! If I got an iPad, I could easily buy it second time.

    Hopefully they are also making sequel for it. I'm not sure how well this game sold, but judging from the HD-Ready gaming media hegemony, it didn't get as much attention as it deserved.

    I'm so excited for this game!  

    I remember seeing it on WiiWare, and was like, "that looks interesting."  
    Now I'm like, "that looks amazing!!"  

    haha

      And it is brilliant! Fantastic visuals, intuitive controls... More than makes up for the disappointing Mega Man X port. :)
