Japanese developer and publisher supporting new Nokia platform

Capcom is the first Japanese based publisher to show commitment for Nokia's new N-Gage platform - the company has announced it is producing games for the mobile company's new software platform.

Yosuke Yoneda, director of capcom’s European mobile division, commented: “Capcom is dedicated to creating great mobile games, and believes that N-Gage will allow us to bring some of our most famous franchises to the platform. Our dedication to quality and creative thinking has seen the company produce a series of ground-breaking titles, with stunning visuals and in-depth game play, never before seen on the mobile."

Capcom has been successful in the mobile space already, by converting its brands such as Mega Man, Phoenix Wright, Resident Evil and Street Fighter to handsets.

“With our global reach, it’s important to have strong, well respected global partners”, said Gregg Sauter, director of third party publishing, Nokia. “For many years, Capcom has been entertaining consumers around the world with exceptional gaming experiences. We’ve now reached a point with mobile technologies where companies like Capcom can deliver a whole new level of mobile entertainment."
