You read that right. Develoepr Klab will be bringing a mobile version of Age of Empires to both iOS and Android devices later this year.

A report on Nikkei says the game will be free-to-play, so it's likely a port of the recent PC reboot of the series. It's also merely the first in a line of Microsoft properties the Japanese developer will be porting to mobile.

Weird that a Microsoft franchise would be coming to phones that aren't Windows phones. Weird, but smart.

If Age of Empires is first, I wonder what's next. Halo Wars might be in line for a second wind, and Project Gotham is due for some re-release love as well...

UPDATE - Ah, seems the games will be coming to Windows Phones as well.
