REDWOOD SHORES, CA, July 17, 2007 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm for Hudson Soft, announced today the upcoming release of Advanced Karpov 3D Chess for mobile phones.

In addition to cutting-edge 3D graphics that allow for multiple camera angles and impressively rendered chess boards, the game also enables players to challenge each other via local two-player matches for the ultimate head-to-head experience.
