Wildseed announced the first GameSkin™ featuring the top-selling fighting game Mortal Kombat®: Deadly Alliance. For those of you, who are not informed Wildseed is a groundbreaking software company pioneering SmartSkin™, the world's first interactive accessory for wireless phones. Below is a part from the press release:

Game Industry’s Most Successful Fighting Game Franchise, Mortal Kombat, to be Packaged on a SmartSkin™ Interactive Accessory for use on the New Identity™ Wireless Phone

LOS ANGELES – May 12, 2004 – Wildseed Ltd., a software company pioneering SmartSkin interactive accessories, today announced the first GameSkin interactive accessory featuring Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. The announcement was made at the world’s largest gaming show, E3.

This legendary franchise tops the list as one of the most successful in console history. Since its debut in 1992, the Mortal Kombat series has sold over 20 million copies. Most recently, the latest version has sold over 2 million units. That game is currently available for Sony’s PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Microsoft’s Xbox video game system, and Nintendo’s GameCube and Game Boy Advance.

The GameSkin featuring Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance marks the first time a Mortal Kombat game will be played on a wireless phone. This game accessory will add Game Boy Advance style controls to optimize the phone for competitive Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance play. This first GameSkin will debut later this year, and it will be available for use with Identity, a new phone manufactured by Curitel that will be launched this summer.

Wildseed research indicates that teens and young adult consumers want a robust gaming experience on their phones. Young people indicated that they want a way to take the console gaming experience with them on the go without having to carry multiple devices. The research and Nintendo’s market demographics also demonstrate that young consumers do not want to carry around a “game console” or put one up to their ear for voice calls, rather, they want “a cool looking wireless phone that also entertains.” “

We are honored to launch our gaming strategy with Midway Games’ legendary Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance,” said G. Eric Engstrom, Wildseed CEO. “We are dedicated to dramatically improving gaming on a wireless phone with specialized GameSkins designed to optimize the game play of each title delivering an arcade experience in the palm of your hand.

For the first time on a wireless phone, there will be no compromises required in order to enjoy a great game playing experience. In seconds, consumers can hot swap between a handheld game console experience, a music player or a thematic fashion experience by changing the SmartSkin accessory that wraps around the outside of the phone.

When this GameSkin is snapped on the phone, the entire wireless experience morphs into the brutal world of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance; the phone’s interface, backgrounds and ringtones automatically transform to portray the ultimate fighting experience. Using the 16 megabyte smart key memory chip in the SmartSkin, the hand-held console game will be available with the same attacks, characters and levels that have made Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance a hit in one of the industry’s most famous franchises. The traditional handheld gaming experience is augmented by the mobile communication aspects of the handset. The mobile capabilities enable remote head to head competition and the ability to augment the game with more characters, levels and weapons downloaded over the air. In keeping with the console feel, the phone is turned on its side while the game is being played providing the proper landscape perspective.


Mortal Kombat Secrets will keep you informed with the latest news on this and the other Mortal Kombat game, that is curently in development by Backbone for Mobile.
