Grim Fandango Remastered (LucasArts)

According to PocketGamer, it's likely that LucasArts is planning or is currently working on a remastered version of one of their most popular adventure games, Grim Fandango. I thought the game looked interesting when I heard it mentioned before, but I never got to play it. Grim Fandango would be the first remastered adventure game I would buy, so I'm looking forward to this being released. I hope it's a universal app, because this would be good on the iPhone and the iPad. The older look from the original compression and rendering may look a lot better at a high pixel-density on the iPhone, though. The dozens of 3D characters were rendered in real-time on top of pre-rendered backdrops, so there's a lot of remastering potential.

I see other threads posted based off of the rumor mine (some as recent as today), so I figured I post this.

While I can't confirm that development on an iPhone and iPad edition of Grim Fandango has started, there's a lot of talk.
Would be nice but . . .

I find it funny how OP actually believes Pocket Gamer's Rumor Mill, like it's ever accurate.

Like others, I was excited until I saw it was the Rumor Mill... We have to stop making threads until the game's confirmed...

Rumor Mill threads should be identified as such in the title. I almost had a heart attack reading the title here. Not funny.
