My Little Pony is one of those things that instantly takes me back to my '80s childhood, despite my interests lying in the more "boy-centric" cartoons like G.I. Joe and Transformers. Of course, at that tender age I didn't realize just how gender-skewed everything was, so my fond memories of My Little Pony are due to my sister's interest in the show and toys; along with Barbie, Strawberry Shortcake, and Care Bears.
Well, we definitely live in a much different time just a couple of decades later. My Little Pony has seen an unprecedented return to popularity in recent years, and it's definitely not just a girls thing anymore. With the Brony culture achieving fairly mainstream exposure, now it's practically en vogue to claim your love of My Little Pony, and if you happen to be male then it's something that's far more accepted now than when I was a kid, which I think is pretty cool.
So anyway, if you've got the My Little Pony fever, then Gameloft has an officially licensed game coming your way which appears to simply be called My Little Pony. As you can see from the screens below, there will be a city-building mechanic that is dripping with My Little Pony fan service, and there will be mini-games to bolster along the Ponyville-building stuff. Gameloft is also throwing out some of the included characters in the game, like Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie.
My Little Pony is slated to hit the App Store sometime this year, and it sounds like it's isn't too far off so I'd expect it sooner rather than later. Whether you claim your allegiance as a Brony, a Pegasister, or just a casual fan of the series, look for more on My Little Pony as it gets closer to release.
