Gameloft announced its intention of launching over 20 titles throughout this year with 3D graphics. Other mobile games developed so far will also eventually be released in the same format. Gameloft
's games were initially developed in Java and adapted for Symbian, Brew, WIPI and Windows Mobile. This wouldn't be totally new for Gameloft who has already released several titles in 3D, including
Massive Snowboarding, Asphalt: Urban GT 2, Midnight Bowling, midnight Pool, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon : Jungle Storm, Real Football 2006, Brothers in Arms : Earned in Blood and Vijai Singh Pro Golf.
Despite its aim to launch 3D games, Gameloft will not quit developing 2G games for over 800 different models of mobile phones. The first 3D games are available in South Korea, Japan, the US and Europe, therefore a large number of people will be able to enjoy a 3D gaming experience on their mobile phone. While mobile phones are continually being improved, it doesn't come as a surprise that mobile phone games will evolve as well in order to suit the consumers' need for new and better games.
The leading mobile phone games developer has also published its first 3D games with OPENGL ES hardware acceleration technology on Sony Ericsson's UIQ 3 based phones, the P990 and M600, the two being the first global handsets on the market to include the technology.Gameloft
president Michel Guillemot said: "The evolution towards advanced 3D games has been gaining momentum over the last couple of years and Gameloft has brought it to the forefront today. Thanks to improved networks and terminals, as well as support from our carrier partners, 2007 is the year that Gameloft will mass market high-definition 3D games around the globe."
