EA announces almost identical version of The Sims for mobile [video]

If you’re familiar with the term ‘Rosebud;!;!;!’ then this article is going to make you very, very happy.

One of the best selling computer games of all time is set to make an epic comeback, this time on our mobile phones.

First released 17-years-ago, The Sims will again begin to preoccupy our lives with the creators of the iconic game announcing an almost-identical version for iPhone and Android users.


“Electronic Arts and Maxis are super excited to announce that we are soft launching a brand-new mobile game we’ve been working on, The Sims™ Mobile!” EA said on its website.

“It is currently soft launching in Brazil exclusively, as we begin testing our game mechanics to prep for our global launch.”

In the mobile version, players will be able to create their own Sim families, build their dream home, unlock new hobbies and careers and even become virtual best friends with their real-life best friends.

The new game, which does not yet have a release date, comes after EA released a simplified version of the original on mobile platform six years ago.
