Spore Origins hitting the iPhone soon, Yahtzee Adventures will as well

Yesterday, Electronic Arts announced a veritable slew of games slated for the iPhone. All of them are fairly unique EA products, and should hopefully toss some much-needed quality into the already endless number of shoddy titles available via iTunes.

The nine games announced are Yahtzee Adventures, EA Mini Golf, Lemonade Tycoon, Mahjong, Monopoly: Here and Now, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, Need for Speed Undercover and the previously announced SimCity and The Sims 3. In addition to those landmark titles, EA also dropped that Spore Origins will be available on September 7.

What does this mean for the lovely iPhone? Hopefully a bunch of games that are better than the majority of the games that I have had the opportunity to sludge through. I never exactly got wrapped up into the potential of the iPhone to take the place of a real handheld gaming device like the Nintendo DS or PlayStation Portable, but it’s going to take decent first-party games like some of the games EA announced to at least boost the iPhone’s saturated library.
