KONAMI will begin provisioning of METAL GEAR SOLID MOBILE for NOKIA's mobile game service, N-Gage(*1) scheduled to start in late June, 2008.
METAL GEAR SOLID MOBILE is original content created exclusively for the mobile platform and based on the METAL GEAR series(*2).
3D graphics and camera work were used to reproduce the "Infiltrate without being seen by the enemy" tension that is characteristic of the METAL GEAR series.
"METAL GEAR SOLID MOBILE" utilizes the handset's camera to incorporate gameplay that can only be experienced on the mobile platform. The camera function is used to change the color of the character's suit as well as provide an optional control for a portion of the game. The N-Gage release of the game supports 5 languages: English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
METAL GEAR SOLID MOBILE received top honours at the 2007 International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA)(*3), taking both the Grand Prix and Operator's Choice Awards.
NOKIA's N-Gage is a mobile game service that began in April 2008 and is supported on N-Gage compatible handsets that are available worldwide. Users can compete with players from around the world and also participate in the N-Gage Arena game community.
In providing content for the N-Gage service, KONAMI will offer a new gaming experience to mobile phone users around the world.
