Godzilla On Your Cell Phone
Mobile entertainment developer Indiagames has entered into an agreement with Toho Co., Ltd. to bring wireless content based on "Godzilla," now celebrating over 50 years of life since 1954.
Founded in 1932, Toho Co. Ltd. is one of the leading entertainment conglomerates in Japan. Toho is best known worldwide as the producer of numerous Godzilla motion pictures and classic films directed by Akira Kurosawa.
Godzilla is the brightest dream and at the same time is the most horrific nightmare of the Japanese cinema. The wireless content, which will be available beginning November 2005, includes two mobile games, wallpapers, screensavers, ring tones, voice ringers, and alerts. The wireless games (both casual and fighting) will
include various Toho monster characters (such as Mothra, King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla, Gigan, etc.), states an official release.
Indiagames CEO Vishal Gondal says: "The Godzilla property has been very popular throughout the world for over 50 years and has been successfully translated into Movies, T.V., games, toys, video games and other merchandise. Indiagames is pleased to be associated with this mega property for mobile phones and thinks it is one of the best properties that Indiagames can leverage across its global distribution
"We're excited to see this deal bring all the fun of Godzilla to mobile phones around the world outside of Japan," adds Shozo Watanabe, general manager of Toho's Los Angeles office.
