SAN FRANCISCO, March 21, 2007 - Hands-On Mobile, a leading global publisher of mobile games, lifestyle and personalization products, today announced that it will bring the urban crime drama by Activision, Inc., True Crime: New York City, to mobile phones worldwide.
Players of True Crime: New York City will take on the seedy underworld of the Big Apple in a quest to find justice for a murdered friend. As an ex-gangster turned cop, mobile gamers will explore a gritty, completely open-ended game world, where every action determines if the player will become a model officer or one with a notorious and shady reputation.
"True Crime: Streets of LA was a hit on over 100 different carriers worldwide, and we fully expect the exciting sequel, True Crime: New York City, to be even more successful than its predecessor," said David Saitta, VP of Sales and Marketing, Hands-On Mobile.
True Crime: New York City will feature fully interactive environments and stunning graphics akin to the console version of the game. Every action influences the game, from what weapons are available to interactions with other cops. Additional features include a random mission generator which allows for a different experience each time the game is played, from robberies and hostage situations to muggings and bank heists - every quest for revenge will take a different path.
