On the eve of the 2012 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, we’ve announced some additional games that will be available exclusively for Android devices featuring Snapdragon processors. Qualcomm has worked closely with developers of these games to fully maximize the power of Snapdragon mobile processors and their embedded GPUs to bring a better gaming experience to mobile users.
The Reem – a mixed martial arts (MMA) game from Khaeon Gamestudio featuring three-time UFC champion Alistair “The Reem” Overeem. The Reem will release in early April exclusive on Snapdragon devices for a year. The game will also use AllJoyn, Qualcomm’s proximity-based peer to peer application development framework that will allow you to fight your friends just by being nearby.
Reign of Amira – a game designed and developed by Qualcomm’s in-house gaming studio. In it, Princess Amira battles her enemies to retain the lost glory of the Desert Kingdom. Reign of Amira is designed to showcase the latest graphics and gaming capabilities of Snapdragon S4 processors. The game will be exclusive to Snapdragon devices running on Android and available to users for free later this year.
The Ball – a highly anticipated game from Tripwire Interactive, which will be released March 2012 and will be first available to Snapdragon devices running on Android for six months. The Ball is already popular within the PC space – having won PC Gamer’s 2010 “Action-Adventure Game of the Year” award – and debuts for the first time on mobile via Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3.
Virtua Tennis Challenge – the first mobile version of this popular console game from gaming pioneer SEGA. The game will be available March 2012 and is optimized on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor for the Xperia Play and features some of the next-generation sports play and graphics.
