Capcom signs up to deliver N-Gage games in '08

Chris Ziegler

Putting the N-Gage and N-Gage QD squarely in its rear view mirror, Nokia continues to pick up the pieces, take its lumps, and learn hard lessons in revamping N-Gage from a dedicated line of devices into a far-reaching platform -- and it's starting to look like the strategy just might work. Latest to sign up with Espoo is Capcom, a juggernaut in the gaming industry, and perhaps more importantly, the first Japanese studio to issue a vote of confidence for the new N-Gage. We wanted to be quick to point out that this probably means Street Fighter II is coming to an N81 near you, but the director of Capcom's European Mobile Division beat us to the punch, saying that he "believes that N-Gage will allow us to bring some of our most famous franchises to the platform." Cheers to that, we say.
