They've invaded every corner of the Internet. Now ponies are coming for your tablet and smartphones.
Considering the popularity of the franchise online, it's a little surprising that My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic hasn't yet had an official game.
But they're now in development; Hasbro and Gameloft have formed a partnership to develop the toy company's properties for smartphone platforms. Gameloft has close ties to Ubisoft, although it's unlikely we'll be seeing an Assassin's Creed/My Little Pony crossover.*
Of course, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is only one of several properties Hasbro has licensed to Gameloft. But this is the Internet. We're only going to hear about the pony games.
While it's highly unlikely that these official games will be nearly as awesome as some of the fangames that have been made so far, and will be made in the future, it's still good to know that MLP:FiM has officially entered the gaming industry.
