Firemint have contacted us with the first set of official details for the upcoming iPhone port of Flight Control to the PS3. Excitingly, the game will support both PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D, and will run at 1080p.
The game, which casts players in the role of a busy air traffic controller, has been a massive hit on Apple’s portable format (and there’s also a HD version on the iPad, too). Starting slowly, players draw paths for the planes and helicopters to direct them to their respective runways and landing pads, whilst avoiding collisions with other aircraft.
On the PS3, players have the option to play solo or co-op with friends with up to four people supported in drop-in, drop-out style. “Multiplayer is insanely fun, you can never be quite sure whether a new player is going to help or hinder your efforts so there tends to be a lot of laughing and jeering,” Firemint’s CEO, Rob Murray, told us. “It’s turned Flight Control HD into an extremely social game.”
The art assets will be updated to 1080p, and will support an optional stereoscopic 3D mode throughout the game, with aircraft “appearing to float over the landscape” if you’ve got a fancy new 3D television set. The PS3 version also boasts an exclusive “Metropolis” map that cycles through day and night.
The game will be released on the 15th of September, and will be playable with the normal Dualshock controller if you’re not sold on a Move just yet.
