Pocket Kingdom - Connected Gaming

Now this is more like it! Pocket Kingdom is Nokia's first real title that is going to make the N-Gage desirable! It's a massive multiplayer RPG set in the land of Ulgress, where you start off as a single traveller, and eventally raise an army and conquer the land. That's if the 999 other players using the N-Gage Arena feature don't beat you to it... No release date yet scheduled, but here at AAN we'd expect Q3 to be realistic.
