With the Japanese release of CGI film Resident Evil: Degeneration out later this year, Capcom turned its attention to converting and optimising the classic survival/horror series for Nokia’s N-Gage platform.
“We’re thrilled to bring another major franchise to our N-Gage platform,” said Gregg Sauter, Director of Third Party Publishing for Nokia. “Resident Evil Degeneration will serve as an exciting new chapter for fans of the series and deliver a unique gaming experience that they will not be able to achieve anywhere else”.
Based around the same events of the upcoming feature length movie, Series veterans Leon Kennedy and Clare Redfielf return and attempt to thwart a terrorist-released virus outbreak at a US airport. The N-Gage adaptation promises top quality 3D graphics, multiple missions and two different game modes.
“The release of Resident Evil Degeneration illustrates our dedication to N-Gage,” said Takeshi Tezuka, general manager of Capcom’s mobile division. “We believe that the platform is an excellent home for some of our most famous franchises and our dedication to quality and creative thinking has seen us create a unique game with stunning visuals and in-depth game play, never before seen on the mobile.”
So far there is no release date for the title in the UK, so we’ll just have to wait while our Japanese counterparts have all the fun/fear.
