Battlefield 3 and Theme Park(!) Coming to iOS

Electronic Arts has two potentially very exciting additions to its iPhone and iPad line-up in the form of DICE's Battlefield 3 and (perhaps more importantly) Bullfrog's classic sim Theme Park.

Pocket Gamer reports that the two iOS games are "likely" to make an appearance at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany next week. Kotaku will be in attendance, ready to saturate iOS devices with fingerprints that have either game playable.

The appearance of Battlefield 3 on iOS devices shouldn't come as much of a shock. EA has had a "mobile/handheld" release of the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game on the books for months and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 saw an iOS port in 2010.

Similarly, a port of Theme Park is not surprising, but certainly welcome. The 1994 PC and Amiga game was ported to everything under the sun at the time. We look forward to seeing it in action for ourselves, not just mocking up screenshots based on ye olde PC versions.
