Age of Empires heading to Android, iOS devices Microsoft's Age of Empires will reportedly soon be available for IOS and Android devices, through a partnership with Japan's KLab Inc.
The move comes as Microsoft seeks to generate more revenue from mobile gaming, which has been emerging as a bigger rival to traditional games consoles and PC gaming in recent years. It has made some of its games available for mobile platforms before, but Age of Empires will be its most popular.

KLab will be tasked with developing the mobile version of Age of Empires, which will be released "before the end of March," according to a KLab spokesperson.

Nintendo is being urged by industry analysts to do the same thing with its own popular franchises, which it typically reserves for its own hardware.
