Midtown Madness, Zoo Tycoon and South Park Available on O2 Java Handsets

IN-FUSIO, a leading mobile games publisher and game service provider, today announced that it has joined O2 to deliver its range of critically acclaimed game licences to a potential audience of 13.5 million O2 customers in the UK alone.

The agreement means that O2 customers can immediately download three of IN-FUSIO’s Java games from its broad portfolio - Midtown Madness 3 Mobile, Zoo Tycoon 2 Mobile and South Park - to a wide range of handsets from the operator’s portal.

Microsoft’s Zoo Tycoon 2 Mobile title is available on O2 portals before any other operator releases the game. IN-FUSIO’s games will be available on 18 Java-enabled handsets from top manufacturers* including Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson. IN-FUSIO plans to release more Java games to O2 customers in the coming months.

The relationship significantly increases IN-FUSIO’s penetration of the mobile gaming market and gives more customers the opportunity to play games from its impressive portfolio. IN-FUSIO has licence agreements with the world’s leading gaming brands.

Udi Jacobi, Sales Director EMEA and Latin America, IN-FUSIO said: “IN-FUSIO continues to extend the availability of its top titles to even more mobile gamers. O2 is a key operator for IN-FUSIO both in the UK and worldwide. We are delighted to partner such a dynamic, progressive and innovative operator.”

“The addition of IN-FUSIO’s top Java titles to O2’s extensive games portfolio reflects O2’s dedication to deliver the best and most up to date mobile content to consumers ahead of other networks,” comments Simon Dean, Head of Games for O2.

“IN-FUSIO’s decision to make Microsoft’s Zoo Tycoon 2 Mobile title available on the O2 Games Arcade before any other network, strengthens O2’s overall position in the mobile gaming market and demonstrates the recognition which O2 Games has gained amongst top publishers such as IN-FUSIO.”
