MMOs and open-world RPGs are rare on mobile devices, so when a game such as Shadow Sun comes out, you just can’t help but hope it’s awesome. The game itself is a lot like the Elder Scrolls series, letting you create a character, customize him or her as you level up, and embark on quests that see its story play out. So what’s there to stop Bethesda from doing the same thing with their own games?
Mobile versions of past Elder Scrolls games, or even a new one altogether, would bring a new layer of depth to mobile RPGs. Touch controls can easily take the place of a mouse and keyboard, and with a smart UI, you’d still have access to all your spells and abilities on a small screen. Morrowind would look great on current devices with some visual updates, of course, but it might still be a while until we see a game as large as Oblivion or Skyrim go mobile.
