Overhaul Games has announced an iPad version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. From BaldursGate.com:

Overhaul Games is pleased to announce Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition™ for iPad.

Since its initial release in 1998, Baldur’s Gate has entertained millions of fans around the globe, and has received countless awards. This classic saga of mystery, intrigue, and adventure has set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons™ computer role-playing games ever since.

The greatest story ever told, better than you imagined

Running on an upgraded and improved version of the Infinity Engine, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition™ will include the entire Baldur’s Gate adventure, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, and never before seen content including a new adventure and new party member.

Your ultimate destiny, now in your grasp

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition™ will be available on the Apple App Store in summer 2012. For all information visit www.baldursgate.com.

Just to be clear, this is in addition to the PC version. To finish up, here are some tweets from Trent Oster over the last few days:

Of course #bgee will be on PC. We're adding #iPad as a platform, we're 100% supporting the PC.

For #bgee we have all the creatures from bg2 and ToB. Some will be making appearances.

We've got five former Bio people working with us now. We'll likely be adding another two soon. Five worked on BG/BG2

We're interesting in the concept of including some of the great mods out there into BG "canon".

We have some ideas on mod management and how to improve the experience.
