A couple of weeks ago, NimbleBit released a rather amusing trailer for Pocket Trains, featuring audio from last year's viral "Excited Train Guy" video. But the freemium game developer extraordinaire didn't announce a launch date for Pocket Trains until four days later, when it tweeted that the game would be arriving on Sept. 26. Well, the big day has come, and Pocket Trains is available now in the App Store for free. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
