SimCity BuildIt could occupy your life when it comes to iPhone and iPad

Electronic Arts will bring the highly addictive SimCity game franchise to mobile devices when it releases SimCity BuildIt for the iPhone and iPad, along with Android devices, sometime "soon".

Here's a quick description of the game:

The choices you make evolve your city in a variety of ways. Meet your citizens' needs to keep them happy, or make questionable choices and feel your citizens' wrath. Pinch, zoom, and rotate 360 degrees as you manage your city in the palm of your hand. With countless buildings and vivid, 3D-quality graphics, it's the most advanced mobile building simulation game.

There's no word on an exact release date, nor any information on pricing or if it will use in-app transactions. What do you think about a new SimCity game coming to mobile devices?
