The major players in the electronic entertainment industry are bringing out the big guns when it comes to mobile games. With a mobile phone in nearly everyone’s pocket that’s a bigger market than the current generation of consoles combined!
Vivendi Games Mobile has announced their second half line up, and it is an impressive one. This includes titles that are original properties as well as games based on Sierra Entertainment franchises. In total Vivendi Games Mobile will be introducing 10 new titles for the second half of 2007.
“The titles announced today will deliver highly enjoyable gameplay and are the product of pioneering design by our internal studios and external development partners worldwide,” said Paul Maglione, president of Vivendi Games Mobile. “We look forward to bringing these titles to a mass market audience of mobile gamers in collaboration with our distribution partners. All of the upcoming games will continue to feature a refreshingly different marketing approach that carriers have begun to associate with Vivendi Games Mobile, including one of a kind digital and viral initiatives as well as marketing strategies based on user-generated content.”
The games include:
Crash of the Titans – the latest action-platformer from the Crash Bandicoot franchise.
Delta Force – based on the popular Novalogic Delta Force series, this game lets you command a squad of Delta Force rangers, and includes a new “sniper scope” feature that is the first of its kind on a mobile game.
Leisure Suit Larry: Love For Sail – a Larry game on mobile. Probably enough said!
Shock Blocks – a puzzle game that originated in Korea, and offers new challenges in two different modes.
