LucasArts *Officially* On Board???

I'm not sure if this is the right section of the forum, and a quick search didn't pull any results which came as a bit of a suprise. But, it seems that LucasArts as decided to 'Officially' port over some of it's classic adventure titles to the iPhone. Being a huge fan of the Monkey Island series, the thought of having legitimate versions of those classics as well as others like 'Day Of The Tenticle' would prove instant purchases for me.

Anyone else pleased to see this other big name dev on board?

I may be the only person in the world that remembers this game... but I really wish they would make a version of "Night Shift" for the iPhone. It was my favorite LA game and it would be very suited for touch.

Who knew making Star Wars figures was so much fun!

I hope thats true. Monkey Island 1 & 2 are 2 of my all-time fav games. I'm really disappointed that the remake is for PC/360, but i will be picking up Tales of Monkey Island on Wiiware. But an iPhone version of 1 & 2 would be so cool, instant buy for me! I notice hat they've put some titles on steam recently too.

Battlefront on PSP was really well done from what I remember, hopefully we could see something like that ported to the iDevice...

Actually, I'd rather see something new from LA. I've played and beaten almost every one of their point and click adventure games, and I have as many of them as I can fit on my 8gb iPod touch already. The only way I'd like a port would be if it was a seriously updated port with updated graphics and more puzzles or having some of the puzzles changed around like they have with Resident Evil quite a few times. Otherwise I'd like to see a brand new game, namely a sequel to Full Throttle that was cancelled a while back. Or the promised Monkey Island 5 that is repeatedly mentioned in MI3 and 4.
