According to a report by the Nikkei (via Reuters), Microsoft is planning on bringing a number of its Xbox and Windows games to the iPhone as soon as later this year.
Microsoft has partnered up with Japanese gaming firm KLab Inc. to port its games over to both iOS and Android.
Microsoft Corp will offer its console and computer games for Apple Inc's iPhone and other smartphone platforms this fiscal year, through a tie-up with Japanese smartphone game maker Klab Inc, the Nikkei said on Monday.
Through a licensing deal, Klab will bring Microsoft's Xbox and Windows-based computer games to the iPhone and smartphones using Google Inc's Android operating system, according to the Nikkei.
Age of Empires is said to be one of the first to arrive, with Reuters saying it will be a free-to-play game expected by the end of fiscal 2013.
