Collect Spirits, Fight Evil and Save The World with SPIRITS™ For N-Gage Platform

Espoo, Finland, May 12, 2005 -- Nokia and Jadestone today announced a new collectible on-line MMOG title, available only on the N-Gage platform. Set in our time, but tinged with ancient mystery, SPIRITSTM sees players fighting The CUT, a doomsday sect whose goal is to stop Earth's over population by triggering natural disasters and killing innocent people.

"The collaboration between Nokia and Jadestone has produced a collectible MMOG with a powerful storyline that is with you wherever you go. It is a classic battle between good and evil with a captivating sci-fi twist that makes the game very addicting." says Gregg Sauter, Director of Games Publishing, Nokia.

"SPIRITSTM will appeal to fans of collectible games, MMORPGs and strategy games. This is the first SPIRITSTM game in what we hope will be a very successful franchise, which should resonate well with audiences beyond the sci-fi and fantasy crowd." Robert Henrysson, CEO of Jadestone continues.

The core game play in SPIRITSTM is based on players hunting and collecting spirits. Gamers will test their skills in duels where tactical thinking as well as quick reactions will make all the difference. In the race to save mankind there is only one way to win: mastering the elements. Demo of SPIRITSTM is available for selected media at E3 in the South Hall, Nokia booth #1524.
