Electronic Arts, the world’s top games publisher, announced yesterday that it’s readying SimCity BuildIt, the latest installment in the popular city-building franchise, for Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Once again, the game will task you with building a city of your dreams, with the choices you make evolving your city in a variety of ways.

“Meet your citizens’ needs to keep them happy, or make questionable choices and feel your citizens’ wrath,” the company wrote. Pricing and availability information will be publicized in due time.

SimCity BuildIt features lush 3D graphics providing a nice 360-degree view of your city that you can zoom, rotate and pan around. Check out the screenshots below.

Electronic Arts did not say whether the game is optimized for the sharper screen resolution on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

SimCity BuildIt will mark the second SimCity game on the App Store following the release of SimCity Deluxe for iPad and its $19.99 counterpart on the Mac App Store.
