I-Play reveals full second quarter line-up
Classic titles, licensed racing mayhem and quiz favourites all on the schedule
Mobile publisher I-Play has announced its line-up for the second quarter of 2006, comprising four titles which cover a wide range of popular and very different genres - from high-octane racing to quiz games.
The company plans to follow up two of its popular existing titles with sequels, namely the second edition of quiz title The Weakest Link, based on the BBC quiz show, and The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo, which brings the racing action of the movie licensed title to the Far Eastern city.
The company will also be launching a 3D version of The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo alongside the standard version - the company's only planned 3D title for the quarter. It's appropriate that I-Play would focus on The Fast and The Furious for its 3D efforts, though; the franchise has now sold over four million units for the company.
The Q2 line-up is completed by two further titles - a new mobile edition of classic arcade game Boulder Dash, Boulder Dash M.E.2, which is a sequel to the popular 2003 mobile title, and MotoX title FMX-II, which is described as the ultimate extreme racing bike game on mobile.
"Content drives this business," remarked I-Play CEO David Gosen, commenting on the new line-up, "and the titles and gameplay experience we have lined up for the second quarter of 2006 all have a mass market appeal. The combination of one-thumb gaming casual titles and big brand franchises demonstrates I-play's continued ability to hit the sweet spot in terms of fun, accessible mobile gaming."
