Nokia India has announced the availability of its gaming service - N-Gage - in India with additional games and an expanded online offering.  Nokia N-Gage is a part of Nokia’s Internet services brand Ovi and brings alive a made-for-mobile gaming service to provide consumers the power to tailor and personalize the Internet experience.

N-Gage initially brings a catalogue of 30 titles developed by publishers such as EA Mobile, Gameloft, Glu Mobile and India Games, in addition to Nokia Games Publishing.

With N-Gage, thousands of Nokia device owners in India can now discover high-quality made-for-mobile games using the N-Gage mobile application on their N-Gage compatible devices or on the online N-Gage showrooms (www.n-gage.com), accessed directly from their mobile devices, the company said.

With the N-Gage application on their devices, people can connect with other e-players through the N-Gage Arena community, discuss topics via live chats and message boards, and participate in tournaments and hosted events. They can create a Friends List, send and receive private messages, and take part in instant messaging style chat.

"With N-Gage, Nokia is looking at redefining the gaming experience for consumers in India as well as creating a strong and collaborative ecosystem so as to catalyze the market for mobile gaming. We are aiming to provide a holistic consumer experience, be it in terms of discovery and access, top quality content, billing flexibility and innovative devices and accessories," said Vineet Taneja, Director (Marketing), Nokia India.
