London - November 4, 2004 - IN-FUSIO today announced the pan-European launch of Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile, making the sheer chaos of the popular Microsoft Xbox® and PC game franchise available to download for JavaTM based mobile phones.
Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile, developed by BeTomorrow, is now available in the UK, France and Spain, and will be available in Italy and Germany in the coming weeks. IN-FUSIO will also be launching Doja and ExEn versions of Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile with carriers internationally for more than 100 handsets worldwide.
A spectacular enhanced Windows MobileTM version featuring 3D graphics is also scheduled to launch for Smartphones in the coming weeks.
"With Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile, we've captured the true spirit of this popular video game franchise so gamers across Europe can take racing mayhem with them wherever they go," said Matthieu Saint-Denis, Game Portfolio Manager, IN-FUSIO. "The game is a testament to IN-FUSIO's dedication to delivering not only top licenses, but also quality titles for mobile gamers everywhere in the world."
Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile brings the "madcap, over-the-top racing and driving excitement" of the multimillion unit-selling video game franchise to mobile phones. Gamers put the pedal to the metal on the streets of Paris as they race everywhere and anywhere they want through the city, behind the wheel of three to five different types of cars including the classic MINI Cooper. The two-dimensional isometric view lets racers take to the roads, zooming past famous monuments and crashing through whatever gets in their path as they make their way between the checkpoints around the city en-route to the finish line. Players get four different game-play modes, including two types of career options, as well as all out "madness" as they compete against four other AI drivers, racing through 16 levels spread across three different regions of the European metropolis.
Midtown Madness® 3 Mobile is the first of six Microsoft license-based titles IN-FUSIO will be launching globally in the coming months, including Zoo Tycoon 2 and Age of Empires® 2 Gold Edition.
