JAMDAT Mobile and Codemasters Bring Console Games to Mobile Phones in Europe
Global wireless entertainment publisher JAMDAT Mobile Inc. announced today an agreement with Codemasters, a European developer and publisher of video games, to bring the console titles TOCA Race Driver, Club Soccer and LMA Manager to mobile phones. European consumers will be able to play these popular console games -wherever they are, whenever they like, right on their handsets.
The agreement covers Europe, where JAMDAT titles are distributed across major mobile operators including Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile, Orange and Telefonica.
"We are delighted to have reached this agreement with Codemasters," said Juan Montes, Managing Director of JAMDAT Mobile Europe. "TOCA Race Driver, Club Soccer and LMA Manager are great brands for Europe. These games enhance JAMDAT's slate of games with exciting sports titles."
"We selected JAMDAT to bring our world-class console games to mobile phones," said Matt Davies, Business Development Manager for Codemasters. "Today's mobile phones deliver an exceptional gaming experience complete with rich graphics and sounds. This is an exciting environment and we are pleased to be working with JAMDAT."
"In line with our global strategy, this Codemasters agreement enables JAMDAT to deliver high-quality content that is popular with consumers in European markets," said Mitch Lasky, Chairman and CEO of JAMDAT Mobile Inc.
In TOCA Race Driver, players can race on world-famous circuits including Surfer's Paradise and Donnington Park.
Club Soccer will have over 15 different versions including Arsenal Club Soccer and Chelsea Club Soccer. Users can create their own team and include real-life soccer idols.
LMA Manager will be one of the most extensive soccer management games to come to mobile phones. If players think they've got what it takes to be or beat the likes of Ferguson and Wenger, then this is certainly the game for them.
