Nokia is currently demonstrating the evolution of its N-Gage gaming platform, revealing six next-generation mobile titles at the E3 expo in Los Angeles and reaffirming its commitment to the mobile gaming market.
Moving away from the contentious N-Gage gamedeck, the next generation of titles will be supported by a wide range of Nokia's S60 and N series mobile phone handsets capable of running complex 3D titles and rich media content.
New titles on display this year include a sequel to the acclaimed multiplayer fighting game ONE, which once again allows players to take on challengers from around the world through the N-Gage Arena, promising a smooth frame rate with real-time reflections and light glow, as well as several new features and selectable characters.
3D racer System Rush: Evolution is another updated and enhanced sequel, which Nokia claims will be the best looking racing game yet to appear on a mobile phone. Also on the cards are Pocket Aces, Pro Series Golf, Space Impact and Creatures of the Deep.
Each of the titles boasts some form of multiplayer or connected gaming element, which is something that Nokia (and many of the publishers in the mobile industry) is keen to promote. Community features, real-time connected gaming and the extension of its N-Gage Arena (which shares similarities with the Xbox Live gamer ranking system) are all key parts of Nokia's plan moving forward, as the company commits to mobile gaming and broadens its potential reach with the introduction of advanced 3D game-enabled handsets.
More details on specific game information and launch dates will be provided as Nokia announces them.
