The Witcher: Versus coming to iPhone

Portable RPG detailed, trailered.

A portable spin-off of CD Projekt's The Witcher RPG franchise is heading to the iPhone.

Developed by one2tribe and available "soon", The Witcher: Versus will be published by Angry Birds/Cut the Rope crew Chillingo.

A port of a browser-based Flash game released in 2008, it's a turn-based scrapper that sees you choosing attacks and defences from a menu before witnessing the encounter play out.

It's all online, so you can pick a fight with friends not just over the iPhone but also those playing the browser version of the game.

There are three classes to choose from: Witcher, Sorceress or Frightener, quests to undertake and new weapons, amulets and magical items to unlock.

"Fans will still find epic duels in The Witcher: Versus; however we have revolutionised the gameplay for iOS devices so they quickly discover new possibilities and features unseen before," explained Wojciech Ozimek, one2tribe CEO

Its bigger brother, The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings, will be out on PC on 17th May 2011.
