Following reports that Microsoft would be bringing gaming titles from the PC and Xbox platforms to Apple's iPhone through a partnership with Japanese gaming form KLab, Microsoft has spoken up to confirm that only Age of Empires will be developed into a mobile title at this time.

Microsoft has said that the initial version will be released in English for iOS and Android, with other languages and a version for Windows Phone coming later. No time-line has been mentioned for when the initial version will be released but I'm sure everybody is with me when I say I hope it's soon!

It seems strange to me that Microsoft are releasing this brilliant classic game for iOS and Android over its own mobile platform first as this could've been a good way to push Windows Phone to those die-hard AoE fans out there. I suppose KLab just wants to target the biggest user base which unfortunately doesn't include Windows Phone.

I will be keeping an eye on the progress of this in any case and will keep you updated :)
