Chris Rydberg has news from Taito. Their Retro Arcade fest of Taito Memories has been suspended and will not be released. Along with that news, their other N-Gage plans have 'not been determined.' The N-Gage software scene is not good at the moment, with Sega delaing apps, Taito pulling out and EA commenting that the N-Gage isn't the greatest of machines. Let's hope April the 14th doesn't turn into a wake.


Thank you for your inquiry. Due to circumstances, we regret to say that Taito Memories was suspended for releasing. Also other development plans for N-Gage is not yet determined so far.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in our products and N-Gage.

Sincerely yours,
Taito Corporation

Good call. Simplistic games like Taito Memories are better off as java games. Expensive MMC games must differentiate themself from cheap downloadable games... And Taito's other N-gage games were pretty bad... so I hope there will be more quality control with future releases (if there are any,lol).

Given the review of Puzzle Bobble (http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/reviews/review2.php?id=76) it may be that Taito Memories (http://www.allaboutngage.com/games/viewgame.php?id=27) might not be a huge loss game wise, but the loss of the name Taito will hurt the N-Game 'brand.'
