Transport Tycoon coming to iOS, Android this year

Like so many before it, the classic PC game Transport Tycoon is coming to mobile devices. The 1994 empire-building game is hitting both iOS and Android devices later this year, Chris Sawyer's 31X Ltd and Origin8 Technologies have announced.

The port is being handled by original creator Chris Sawyer, who's also known for the Rollercoaster Tycoon series. This one, as you may guess from the name, is all about taking control of a transport company and ferrying passengers and goods by highways, railroads, seaports and airports. The original was a 2D, isometric game, and the announcement didn't mention if it would retain anything in common with the graphical style or shake it up completely. Check out the teaser trailer below.
