Nokia launches tool for N-Gage Arena Tournaments
Posted on 15-Dec-2004 21:41 | Tags Filed under: News



The Global Arena Tournament Tool enables operators and retailers the possibility to create their own branded N-Gage Arena tournaments with a wide range of Arena enabled N-Gage games. The first competition using the Global Arena Tournament Tool will start today with Finnish mobile network operator DNA and using Codemaster's acclaimed Colin McRae Rally 2005.

"Running an N-Gage Arena tournament is a great way for us to generate interest around our leading role in expanding mobile gaming in Finland," said Markku Siikala, Head of Content and Services, DNA Finland. "All N-Gage game deck owners in Finland can participate, regardless of their network provider, and with a superb title like Colin McRae 2005 to play, we are sure to see some fast-paced rally competition."

The Global Arena Tournament Tool enables operators or retailers to run their own branded N-Gage Arena tournaments. Working together with the N-Gage Arena support team, the tournament can be created and launched in a matter of weeks. The tool's flexibility means that tournaments can be tailored for specific retailers, a specific title or even a specific city, region or country.

Participants may sign up for an N-Gage Arena competition via an operator or retailer hosted website or xHTML site. Once registered, participants can play the selected game and upload their performance results to the N-Gage Arena via their N-Gage game deck. Registered players then have their scores tagged to be included in the competition. The operator or retailer running the competition determines the length of the tournament, which can last a day, a week or even a whole year.

Tournaments can be combined with marketing efforts to boost sales promotions and related activities. The company believes the N-Gage Arena tournaments will help generate interest and activity for operators and retailers, whether their online presence or physical store locations.
