Namco Bandai brings 22 classic games to Asha Touch devices

Namco Bandai announced 22 classic arcade games will be brought to Asha Touch devices and will be available to download from the Nokia Store starting today. The games have been optimized for touchscreens on the Nokia Asha 205, Asha 306 and Asha 311, which just recently launched last month. The devices come equipped with the new Nokia Browser that can compress content up to 84 percent in order to reduce data consumption.

The 22 popular classic game titles include Pac-Man, Flight Control, Soulcalibur, Final Fantasy, Ace Combat Northern Wings, Brain Exercise with Dr Kawashima and Ridge Racer Drift, among several others. Nokia's direct billing agreements will allow mobile gamers from over 52 countries to purchase the games without needing a credit card.

The 22 game titles from Namco Bandai will be available to purchase for a price of between $0.99 and $2.99 from the Nokia Store. The store recently broke 5 billion downloads and more than 411 Nokia developers have built apps that have passed over the one million download mark.
