LucasArts Teases iPhone Ports of Classics

With LucasArts beginning to embrace digital distribution and its library of beloved classics, the studio once known for Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max: Hit the Road, Monkey Island, Full Throttle and others has suggested that iPhone ports may be on the way.

"On iPhone, you know Apple's policy that we can't talk about a release until it's ready to release," LucasArts CEO Darrell Rodriguez told Joystiq when asked about iPhone and iPod Touch editions of older titles. "But it would make sense that we would do something like that if we were to go in that direction ... wink wink, nod, nod."

Rodriguez further noted that LucasArts' Singapore branch, "which does the majority of our handheld titles," is playing with the PSP Go and "seeing what we can do [there]."
