Nokia today revealed that I-play, the mobile entertainment company, will be delivering a line-up of casual games to the [tag]N-Gage[/tag] platform (N-Gage is still alive) launching this fall. The first two titles to be introduced in 2008 include, World Rally [tag]Championship[/tag], the official license of the FIA WRC, and Super [tag]Mah Jong[/tag], an epic tale based on the ancient spiritual game Mah Jong, from the makers of Jewel Quest.
David Gosen, CEO, [tag]I-play[/tag] commented: “We’re very excited to be cooperating with [tag]Nokia[/tag]. The awareness that the launch later this fall alone will bring to the consumer and the mobile industry will help propel mobile gaming to the front and centre of entertainment consumed on the mobile.”
I-play’s portfolio for the N-Gage platform will focus on casual, ‘one-thumb’ games for the mass market. These games will include prestigious licenses, like the World Rally Championship, which have I-play’s casual development philosophy at their core.
