Officially licensed Friendship is Magic games are on their way, courtesy of developer Gameloft. Mobile games developed for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) and Android platforms are currently in development, and are the first non-educational games to bear the My Little Pony license in this generation. Unfortunately, no actual information about these games were released; simply a release window of later this year.
Some of Gameloft’s recent games include a promotional tie-in with Men in Black 3 and Ice Age. Their other properties include Modern Combat, Dungeon Hunter, and Asphalt Heat, all mobile games.
In addition to developing games with the My Little Pony license, Gameloft will also be working on games based on The Littlest Pet Shop. The games are due for release by the end of the year. ■
