Lego: Lord of the Rings hits iOS

Adventure game now available for Apple devices year after original release.

A year after its original release, Lego: Lord of the Rings is now available in the App Store for iOS devices, a product page (via Touch Arcade) for the Warner Bros. game reveals.

The $5 iOS version of Lego: Lord of the Rings requires 3GB of available space if installed over Wifi, but only 1.5GB if downloaded on a computer and then synced with a device.

Lego: Lord of the Rings for iOS, which follows Peter Jackson's three fantasy movies, features voice acting pulled from the films.

Over 90 characters are included in the game, including Frodo, Sam, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, and Aragorn, as well as those not depicted Jackson's films like Tom Bombadil.

Lego: Lord of the Rings features two controller systems: "Classic" and "Touch Screen," which players can swap between at any time. The game also supports achievements and Game Center, though it appears co-op play did not make the cut.

No mention was made of a release for Android or Windows Phone devices.

Lego: Lord of the Rings was originally released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC, 3DS, and PlayStation Vita in fall 2012. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
