A bit of a surprise, EA Mobile announced that it would be bringing Mirror's Edge to the iPhone this Spring. My first question was "Okay, how does that work?"

Well, here's my answer in the form of a trailer showing off the game in action. It looks like a bit of a 2D-style running sidescroller, rendered using a 3D engine. Visually it's not bad, and Faith looks as limber as ever. Anyone else getting a Canabalt vibe?

Mirror's Edge on iPhone will feature 14 levels of running, sliding, climbing, rolling, and jumping. It looks like it'll be a nice diversion until the inevitable sequel arrives. And yes, despite so-so retail success, word around the water cooler is that DICE is working on a sequel. That's something you want, right?
