Kalypso Media has today announced that El Presidente will be coming to mobile when Tropico hits iPad later this year.
Much like it’s bigger fully-fledged counterpart, Tropico for iPad will feature a similar strategic city building dictator sim but in a more mobile-first format. The game is currently in development by Feral Interactive and is expected to launch later this year as a premium title with no in-app purchases.
Tropico for iPad will feature touch controls and a more simpler touch-friendly user interface making it simpler for players to rule over their tropical Caribbean islands.
“With its delightful mix of strategy and tongue-in-cheek humour, the Tropico series has long been a favourite of desktop and console gamers alike,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Re-imagining its gameplay for mobile has been great fun; we’re excited by the results, and are delighted to be bringing it to iPad.”
To accompany the news, a trailer for Tropico for iPad has also been released, which you can see below:
