Nokia and Capcom resurrect classic franchise with Resident Evil Degeneration

(PresseBox) ( Espoo, Finland, )
Nokia and Capcom today announced that Resident Evil Degeneration will be released on N-Gage later this year. With gameplay optimized for N-Gage, including two separate play modes, plus multiple mission types and 3D quality graphics, Resident Evil Degeneration is a cutting edge title that illustrates the unique capabilities of the N-Gage platform.

The game, part-based on the upcoming October theatrical release in Japan full-length CG motion picture of the same name, focuses on the release of a deadly virus by a terrorist at a US airport and follows series favourites Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, as they attempt to destroy the virus and prevent it from being dispersed across the country. Resident Evil Degeneration is the first full-length CG motion picture from the Resident Evil series, widely considered to be the benchmark of the survival horror video game genre.


"We're thrilled to bring another major franchise to our N-Gage platform," said Gregg Sauter, Director of Third Party Publishing, Nokia. "For many years, Capcom has been entertaining people around the world with exceptional gaming experiences and we're delighted that they have decided to release one of their most popular franchises for N-Gage. 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. "


"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."
