Opening theatrically overseas
Nokia and Capcom announced that Resident Evil: Degeneration will be released on N-Gage later this year. N-Gage is a made-for-mobile games service available in compatible Nokia Nseries and other S60 3rd Edition devices from Nokia.
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.
“The release of Resident Evil: Degeneration illustrates our dedication to N-Gage,” says 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.”
A DVD release date in the U.S. for Resident Evil: Degeneration has not been announced. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment previously stated it will arrive this winter.
