Strap on Your Seatbelts – System Rush On The N-Gage Platform Speeds into Retail Stores

Espoo, Finland, September 20, 2005 - Nokia is proud to announce that System Rush for the N-Gage platform is shipping to retail stores. A futuristic racing game, System Rush straps players into the pilot seat of a Co-Vec (code vehicle) where they wreck havoc by racing through the hostile networks of virtual corporations. Developed exclusively for the N-Gage platform by Ideaworks 3D, System Rush offers intense multiplayer experience, including four-player shadow racing in the N-Gage Arena and white-knuckle one-on-one battles via Bluetooth connection.

"System Rush is not your typical racing game," said Gregg Sauter, Director, Games Publishing, Nokia. "We took care to create a tangible, futuristic world with remarkable rivals that gamers would yearn to race. With killer house music to set the scene, this title invokes the thrill of competing against elite hackers as the player dashes along the G-force inducing twists and turns."

In System Rush, the player must clear his name of a global cyber crime by locating a code embedded deep within the corrupt GlobeNet networks. With a choice of 15 unique Co-Vec vehicles, the gamer will drift, grip and glide past enemies through 15 insane tracks as he fights to clear his good name.

Gamers can experience the adrenaline of competing through head-to-head battles via Bluetooth connection or delve into the racing community of the N-Gage Arena. With options to unlock limited edition cars, the N-Gage Arena offers additional multiplayer features, including four-player shadow racing, player profiles, online league tables that celebrate outstanding players, and downloadable race clips.
