Out Of This World coming to iPhone/iPod Touch

From Front Page:

We've just gotten some exciting, breaking news sent to us from a friend and iPhone developer attending the GDC Classic Game Postmortem – Out of this World / Another World, being delivered by long-time developer Éric Chahi.
Chahi's classic filled-vector cinematic platformer Out of this World (Another World in the UK) is coming to the iPad.
Chahi indicated that the game is currently under development and did not provide a timeline to the audience. We'll bring more details on this as we can provide them them and will take a close look as soon as we get our hands on this epic title.
UPDATE: BulkyPix has issued a press release on the coming iOS conversion of Another World indicating that the title will be released for both the iPad and the iPhone in the form of a Universal application developed by DotEmu (who brought us R-Type and Golvellius).
In Out of This World, you play as a red-headed scientist who teleports himself to another planet. You immediately face dangers like underwater tentacles, poisonous slugs, and huge snarling beasts. All that is before you're captured by large, humanoid aliens, and have to escape with the help of one of them.

Another World is a classic side-scrolling platformer that's appeared on everything from Amiga to Gameboy Advance since its release in 1991. The iOS version will be a universal app, with updated graphics that are optimized for both Retina displays and iPads. However, just like in The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition, you'll be able to switch to the original graphics at any time by swiping on the screen with two fingers. The game will have three difficulty modes, remastered audio, and a choice of control methods. It will cost $4.99.

One of my all time favorite game which I replay at least once in a year.
I'm in heaven.
