Los Angeles, CA - Oct. 5, 2007 - One of the most popular puzzle games of all time will soon be popping up on mobile devices across North America. Taito's Bust-A-Move TM : Mobile Mania, features a new network option that allows players to compete against their friends and family on different mobile phones, capturing all the excitement of the classic arcade game.
"Classic puzzle games with networking options are a natural fit for the mobile platform," says Keiji Fujita, producer of Bust-A-Move: Mobile Mania. "Fans who remember playing these games on consoles and in the arcades can have the same great play experience on their mobile handsets."
Bust-A-Move: Mobile Mania features the same addictive gameplay that made the franchise a hit in arcades and living rooms around the world. In addition to the multi-colored bubble popping frenzy that has enthralled fans for years, Bust-A-Move: Mobile Mania adds an all-new network option that allows limitless fun as players can compete with friends and family across other mobile phones.
Bust-A-Move: Mobile Mania is expected to be available on AT&T and T-Mobile USA this fall as well as for subscribers of other major mobile carriers in the United States in early 2008. Pricing has yet to be determined by each of the individual carriers.
