Verizon Wireless And Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., Announce Quality Original Game Play For Verizon Wireless Customers


SAN FRANCISCO, CA, BASKING RIDGE, NJ, and EL SEGUNDO, CA — From CTIA WIRELESS I.T. & Entertainment 2008 in San Francisco, Verizon Wireless, builder and operator of the nation’s most reliable wireless voice and data network, and Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the availability of “Emoticons Mobile,” “Gold Miner,” “Hellboy®: The Stench of Evil” and “Metal Gear Solid® Mobile” on Verizon Wireless phones. “Emoticons Mobile” is a puzzle game that is easy to start and impossible to stop. Players mix and match emoticons, such as Yellow Smilies, Blue Frownies and Purple Crazies to create the biggest matches and longest combos, collecting points along the way.

“Gold Miner” utilizes a claw and reel to mine gold and other resources such as diamonds and dynamite from the Earth. The claw swings back and forth, allowing players to grab treasures and reel them up. Throughout the game, players save and collect currency, purchasing items between levels to advance.

“Hellboy: The Stench of Evil” is the latest iteration in the popular video game franchise, designed exclusively for the mobile platform. Featuring 12 action-packed levels, interactive environments, colorful graphics and animation inspired by the comic-book series, the game is a unique adventure through a mythological underworld where players fight against Indian spirits, shamans and Nazi Mystics.

Designed by Kojima Productions, the same team behind the “Metal Gear Solid” console games, “Metal Gear Solid Mobile” is an original game designed specifically for the mobile platform. Players face the same extreme tension of solitary infiltration that fans of the classic tactical espionage action game have come to expect from the “Metal Gear Solid” series. “Metal Gear Solid Mobile” features dramatic 3D art displays, gameplay and camera work that greatly surpass the current standard of mobile games.

Verizon Wireless customers can purchase and download all games through the Games shopping aisle of the Get It Now® or Media Center virtual store on their phones. “Emoticons Mobile” and “Gold Miner” is available in the Puzzle Best Sellers category available for $3.99 monthly subscription or $7.99 for unlimited use purchase; “Hellboy: The Stench of Evil” is available in the TV/Movie/Music Games category for $3.99 monthly subscription or $7.99 for unlimited use purchase; “Metal Gear Solid Mobile” is available in the Verizon Exclusives or Action Best Sellers categories for $4.99 monthly subscription or $10.99 for unlimited use purchase. Games are available on a number of popular phones from Verizon Wireless, including the LG Chocolate™, MOTORAZR™ V3m, G’zOne Type-S Push to Talk phone and the Samsung Alias™. Application purchase prices and subscription fees may vary; unless customers have unlimited data features, airtime or megabyte charges may also apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications.
