Well, this mystery is solved. The first episode of The Walking Dead is still coming to iPad and iPhone. In fact, it's hitting July 26, Telltale has just confirmed.

A blog post on the studio's site reveals that this, and the other episodes, are going to feature a "new interface design," which should make playing these games on mobile a much more intuitive experience. The images we have below specifically show off its contextual action gestures, as well as its new dialogue menu.

The first episode will run you $4.99. Later episodes will be released as IAP at the same price, but you'll also get the option to essentially pre-order the next four for $14.99. That'll save you some dough if you get sold on this one.

And yeah, you'll need newer hardware to run these games. The list of supported devices includes: iPad 2, the new iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and 4th Generation iPods and above.

We've spent some time with the Macintosh version of the game a long time ago and shared our experience. In a nutshell, The Walking Dead is a really gruesome and smart adventure game that plays off the comic book's fiction almost perfectly. This thing seems to nail choice and has some of the more terrifying scenes ever in a video game, too. Buckle up.

    Shame it took them so long to bring it to ios. I already bought the first two parts on xbla. So I'll probably pass on the iOS version.

    A single app with IAP to allow for saves to transfer from episode to episode. Smart. I wonder what the file size will end up being like when all five episodes are out - shouldn't be too terrible as the first two are only 450 MB total on PC, but I dunno how optimized the port will be.

    Color me excited!

  • ImJPaul

    Hope it's universal. Already bought them on my Xbox but I'll gladly buy it again on my iPhone/iPad as long as its universal just for the new experience.

  • tim240

    Cool but I already played the last two episodes.

    Any word on if this will contain GameCenter achievements?
    It would be a Telltale first. Although considering they have them in the Xbox and Steam versions I assumed the answer is yes but couldn't find a concrete answer anywhere.

    Alguien sabe si estará disponible en español ??

    Good luck to them getting people to pay that price on iOS. Assuming they don't horribly mess up the port then it's definitely worth the price they're asking its just...well we know how this works. The app store is 99 cents or bust and a lot of people won't even do that. Great game though I'd cough up the $20 for it if I had an iPad and/or didn't just get the game on the Steam Summer Sale.

      You are aware that most of their episodic titles are prices anywhere between $2.99 and $6.99, right? Telltale offers real game experiences, not throwaway downloadable titles.

      • KenGriffeyIII

        Is that per episode? Never bought a Telltale game on iOS. Always seemed like more of an iPad thing (which I don't own) than something that would work well on iPhone. That wasn't a sarcastic "good luck" though I know their games are worth the price it just seems that whether they're worth it or not people only want to pay 99 cents.

      • ducksFANjason

        Yes that's per episode. And they're generally worth the price of admission IMO

    "The list of supported devices includes: iPad 2, the new iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and 4th Generation iPods and above."
    The ipod touch 4g part doesn't make sense. It's a very underpowered device, boasting 3gs-level hardware with a retina display. If the game doesn't run on iPad 1 it shouldn't run on the iTouch 4g, and vice versa.

      Um... What?  You're thinking of the third gen.  The fourth gen is the current model, which launched in 2010 and has the same basic hardware specs as an iPhone 4. The big exception is that it still only has 256 MB RAM.

    Unfortunately, their port of Jurassic Park was horrible, dunno if they ever fixed the stuttering, because I bought the rest of the season for PC instead (even tho i really preferred the controls of the iPad port).

    So no more iPad ports of their games for me, the skill points they invested in storytelling and atmosphere are lacking in game engine development^^

  • parranoya

    Aaarrrrgg I just bought this for the PC. Now I guess I need to get this again for the iPad.

    Already played both episodes on PC. Doesn't hurt my wallet to play Episode 1 again on my iPad. $4.99 is not bad for an excellent zombie holocaust experience.

  • araczynski

    can't figure out how this plays, maybe they'll throw out a demo.

  • jan piggot

    bout bloody time! bet they will charge the earth too!

  • metalcasket

    Not really sure what to do. I pre-ordered the season on PC and now I just can't get the second episode to frickin' download. Hmmm...*scratches beard* Couple of days to decide.

  • Akiratech

    I'm in

  • weisome

    Can't wait!

  • Trev1
