Elite® re-signs Midway's™ Paperboy™ to 2010

Mobile phone game players can look forward to enjoying new and classic mobile products based on the Midway™ arcade title Paperboy™. This exciting possibility has been brought about as a result of Elite® and Midway™ extending their existing relationship for Paperboy™ mobile products, worldwide, to 2010.

Already in development and scheduled for a spring 2008 release, is a brand new game incorporating the familiar characters and game play dynamics of the arcade title, first seen in 1984.

Also today, Elite® announced that it’s begun a search for development partners to create other Paperboy™ mobile products to be launched, in 2009, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the game’s introduction.

Elite® founder Steve Wilcox said“Classic versions of the Midway™ arcade title Paperboy™ have been enjoyed by millions of players in the arcades, on consoles and PCs and most recently, courtesy of Elite®, mobile phones.” He continued,“We genuinely hope and believe that the new Paperboy™ mobile products will be enjoyed by millions more.”

Developers and publishers wishing to partner with Elite® in the creation of Paperboy™ mobile products to be launched in 2009 are invited to contact Steve Wilcox. (E: steve.wilcox@elite-systems.co.uk T: +44 1543 268826 Web: elite-systems.co.uk Wap: elite.mobi)
