Fans of Transport Tycoon will be happy to hear that the widely popular PC game is going to be making its way to iOS soon. The title, which was originally released in 1994, is still highly regarded as one of the better simulation games of all time.

Even better, the remake is being both designed and directed by Chris Sawyer, the creator of the original TT. And he says that the game is being ”painstakingly revised” for the touchscreen, while still retaining all of its best gameplay elements…

Here’s the teaser trailer that was just posted to Transporttycoon.com (via TouchArcade):

The site goes on to say that Sawyer has teamed up with Origin8—the design studio responsible for the well-liked Sentinel series of tower defense games, Space Station Frontier, and several other solid iOS titles. So the end result should be fantastic.

Other than that, not much is known about the game, but both the site and YouTube channel say they’ll have more news in the coming months. Honestly, I don’t really care about Transport Tycoon, just tell me when Rollercoaster Tycoon is coming out.

      Old times are good times. Which one came first, this one or SimCity?

    I am almost 100% sure that this is going to be free with IAPs.
    I hope this is not like plants vs zombies 2, where you have to buy everything to play a free game.

      I’m with you on this. If there were a paid version of Real Racing 3 or an IAP to turn off all IAP’s I would love it so much more and it’s the same story with many other games and it’s got to the point where I’m not even playing any games that use the freemium model since it is just not worth it…

        Me too! I’m probably missing out on some great titles but I’m from a generation where we bought the whole game at point of sale. IAPs, Online passes and the like have definately affected my gaming habits.

    I rmeember this game! It was so much fun. Like Railroad Tycoon meets Sim City. Or Railroad Tycoon, but with also buses, planes, and so much more depth. Kinda like Sim City.
