Default Neverwinter Module Developer Ossian Studios Bringing Western RPG to iPhone

Hadn't seen this mentioned here yet:

After working with Dungeons & Dragons and The Witcher over the past few years, Ossian Studios has turned its RPG talents to creating a new fantasy game and world of its own design. We are pleased to announce The Shadow Sun™: a dark heroic fantasy that brings together the high adventure of classic D&D, combat inspired by Fable, Zelda, and The Witcher, and the fear of otherworldly horrors of H.P. Lovecraft.
This is a world in which magic is wielded by only a few, where a cataclysm a millennium ago still fuels hostilities between the civilizations that remain, and where much of the lands beyond the fringes of human settlement remain a deadly unknown. It is also a world that has felt an alien touch upon its sun, shrouding it in ever-increasing shadow with consequences that are only now becoming horrifically apparent.
The Shadow Sun brings a full 3D, true Western-style RPG to the iPhone and iPod touch. Combining the excitement of dynamic, visceral combat with a gripping story, it will redefine role-playing on the platform. Stunning, finely detailed graphics and a captivating musical score couple to create an immersive experience to rival the best PC and console RPG titles.
Features:
• Enter a story full of complex characters, intrigue, danger, and shocking surprises.
• Explore the decadent imperial city of Shar and the exotic desert lands around it.
• Battle enemies using magical powers and dozens of weapons.
• Play as male or female with a character system that allows you to evolve your character’s abilities exactly how you want.
• Ally with one of several companions to adventure with and fight alongside.
• Make your role-playing choices wisely through dialogue or action, and become either a hero or a villain.

From the Ossian Studios website, it is coming in "late 2010." I wish we would get more of a description than just an advertisement though, as this sounds pretty cool.

Judging by the screenies, I think it won't.

There was a time, believe it or not, when this happened frequently, and it was awesome. Games wouldn't even be announced often times until after they had been submitted.

I hope not. We need more games that fully utilize the newer hardware. Time to leave 1st and 2nd gen behind.

Having said that, this game looks very good, and I'm interested. Especially since it's inspired by the work of Lovecraft, one of my favorite horror/fantasy authors.
