The strength of gaming on Nokia’s new Asha Touch range of mobile phones was underlined today with the announcement of over 20 fantastic new titles from NAMCO BANDAI.
Launched just over a month ago, the Nokia Asha 305, Nokia Asha 306 and Nokia Asha 311 are a colourful range of affordable mobile phones designed for young, urban and aspirational people in emerging countries.
At their core is a great new touch screen experience that makes for fast mobile web browsing, easy access to social networks and, of course, for gaming.
In total, 22 games have arrived for Asha Touch devices from NAMCO BANDAI including these classic titles you probably last played on a dedicated machine:
ACE COMBAT Northern Wings
RIDGE RACER Drift
Brain Exercise with Dr Kawashima
James Kucera, head of mobile for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., said:
“Our partnership with Nokia perfectly illustrates the strengths of our brand’s experience and leadership in the mobile games industry and fits our mutual resolve to bring games to all mobile users worldwide”
Supporting emerging nations
Nokia’s Asha Touch devices are aimed at offering an affordable smartphone-like experience for young people with big dreams but small budgets.
For example, the new Nokia Browser, which compresses data by up to 85%, makes mobile web browsing faster and, crucially, cheaper.
These new titles from NAMCO BANDAI are priced between USD 0.99 and USD 2.99 – and they’re available on the Nokia Store as of today. Mobile gaming fans in more than 52 countries will be able to purchase them without the need for a credit card, via Nokia’s extensive direct billing agreements with over 145 operators.
