Nokia N-Gage gets Konami games

Nokia and Konami have announced that Konami mobile titles will be added to the N-Gage mobile games platform.

The mobile version of the popular Metal Gear Solid will be the first title in the games line-up and this new version of the classic game features original content that can only be found on the mobile platform.

Metal Gear Solid Mobile includes never-before-seen "dramatic 3D art displays" and camera work. Konami says the detailed in-game graphics "capture the atmosphere of the Metal Gear Solid series and create a depth that completely draws the player into the game, and pushes the capabilities of the mobile platform".

Controls have been introduced that are made especially for mobile devices while an in-game camouflage system utilises colour samples from the scenery of the real world captured by the handset's camera.

"We're excited to see Konami tap into the performance and community features we've built into the N-Gage platform", said Gregg Sauter, director, Third Party Games Publishing, Nokia.

"Metal Gear Solid on N-Gage will raise the bar with respect to graphical detail and made-for-mobile features. We look forward to the launch of this great franchise on N-Gage."
