Heads up: the iPhone and iPad port Jordan Mechner's The Last Express is launching this coming September 27, according to DotEmu, the developer handling the classic adventure game's latest port.

As you'll notice in the following teaser trailer for this version of the game, The Last Express was kind of a big deal when it was released in the late-90s, and it continues to be a marvel of sorts. It's one of a handful of games that uses a real-time mechanic that doesn't totally suck, for example, and its attention to micro environmental detail is still notable.

We'll be looking to climb aboard The Last Express as soon as it makes its stop in the App Store. Provided we stay on track and don't get derailed, we should have a review for you in the near future.

    Lol the trailer would be badass if not for the still-screen animation. It just looks jarring when combined with the music and the explosions and such 😛

    I bought this game for the PC back when it came out. I was never able to play it though since I'm hearing impaired and the game doesn't have subtitles for the English dialogue. I'm hoping that they'll add a subtitle option to this version since depending on where you are, it may be difficult even for people with normal hearing to play a voice only game on iOS devices.

      Totally agree with you man!!!

      Absolutely agree with you. It was really painful to play through the game without subtitles.

    Absolutely fantastic games. Yes, a lot of the animations are stills, but even so it's an amazing experience.
