2K Games has announced a brand new entry in the Borderlands franchise specifically for the world of mobile/touchscreen gaming with Borderlands Legends. Fans of tomfoolery on Pandora will apparently be able to take the original four vault hunters and toss them into a world of turn-based, isometric, strategic combat.

All of that sounds completely nerdy and entirely amazing.

A round of five screenshots of the game in action were released yesterday. You can dig the first above, and then you can flip through the rest in the gallery at the base of this post.

Borderlands Legends is slated to launch on October 31st. That’s right, the game was announced yesterday, and it’s set to release less than a week from now. As much as I hate on mobile games, I do love the typical turnaround time between announcement and launch. This game will sell for $4.99 on the iPhone/iPod Touch and $6.99 on the iPad.

And, before you ask, 2K Games has not announced Borderlands Legends for any platform other than iOS. One more reason for me to keep my phone around as an iPod Touch once I switch to the Nokia Lumia 920. I needs it.
