Mass Effect 3 heading to smartphones?

With the possibility of EA’s forthcoming Mass Effect 3 coming to mobile phones, we cannot help but get excited at the thought of Commander Shepard giving it large on the small screen.

The beauty of today’s smarter smartphones is the ability to play some of our favourite console games on devices we can fit in our pockets. Games like Mass Effect 3.

Mass Effect 3 hits the shops on 9th March 2012, confirmed for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. An EA spokesperson has now hinted of a “handheld/mobile” port, suggesting we could see Mass Effect 3 on iOS and Android devices.

The EA rep did not specifically mention any devices by name, instead choosing to tell games site Kotaku that launches of handheld and mobile products tied into Mass Effect 3 appear to be pretty much nailed on:

“There will be “handheld/mobile” products tied to Mass Effect 3, as noted in our past few earnings announcements. They are part of the Galaxy at War system. We will have more details to share soon.”

It is not an official confirmation by any means, and Kotaku has been unable to confirm the name of the confidential source, so take the above with a pinch of salt, however a title as high anticipated as Mass Effect 3 is likely to sell plenty, should it receive some smartphone love.
