Mobile reboot coming this winter.

'Dungeon Keeper,' the colorful dungeon-building strategy game is returning after a long dormant period. The 1990's saw two titles from Bullfrog Productions and resulted in a cultish fan base. Players not only grew their dungeons and creatures, but also had the ability to possess their minions for a first-person view. After nearly 15 years of ignoring the franchise, EA is bringing 'Dungeon Keeper' back through the work of Mythic.

From EA, "Horny’s Back and better than ever in Dungeon Keeper on mobile! Today, EA and Mythic studio announced a mobile reboot of the 1990s hit with the unveiling of Dungeon Keeper on site at EA’s Gamescom Business Lounge. Coming to iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices this winter, Dungeon Keeper provides an addictive mix of strategic building and tower defense; it’s a ground-breaking mobile experience that’s diabolically fun to its core.

"As the hands-on overlord of your very own subterranean lair, design a devilish dungeon with expertly laid tunnels and traps, unearth treasures, and collect and command minions in a battle to dominate the ever-expanding underworld. Invade other players’ dungeons and unleash the powers of the Hand of Evil™. Your opponents will tremble in fear at the sight of your army and the force of your spells as you lay waste to their defenses and destroy their dungeons!"

EA is promising both PvP and PvE gameplay, plus an aspirations towards the special wit exuded by the original games.
