Supergiant Games quietly released Transistor on the iOS App Store this morning. Originally released for the PC and PS4 last year, Transistor combines an isometric action RPG with a more thoughtful turn-based fighting system. Transistor on Apple devices will include “an intuitive new touch interface,” as well as traditional gamepad support with “Classic Controls.” Priced at $9.99, Transistor is a Universal App designed for cross-device play with iCloud saving. Supported devices include iPhone 5 (or newer), iPad 4 (or newer), and iPad Mini 2 (or newer).
Starring an amnesia-stricken singer named Red, the titular Transistor is a futuristic sword that helps her do battle with the evil group in control of the city. Logan Cunningham, the narrator from Bastion, provides the voice of the Transistor. Supergiant also tapped Ashley Barrett for a second time to collaborate with composer Darren Korb on the game’s soundtrack.
Supergiant’s Bastion eventually found its way to a variety of different platforms after its PC and Xbox 360 debut. If the same holds true for Transistor, this iOS port is just the beginning.
