Mobile game publisher Gameloft announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Korean telecom operator KTF. The first two Gameloft titles available to KTF users are Might and Magic and 2006 Real Football 3D, to be followed by "some 20 new Gameloft games in the months to come." "We are very happy to be launching our games directly through KTF; it's a major operation for us that we have long prepared and strongly supported," Won Cho, Gameloft Business Development Manager said. He continued, "Korea is a major mass market for mobile games, where penetration usage reaches 12% of mobile users. With very aggressive pricing (at 2,500 KRW - 2 euros - per game), high quality handsets and excellent quality service on the deck, this market is considered as a benchmark all over the world. Our first games being a success there is a major encouragement to pursue our strategy." In March of this year Gameloft announced a similar distribution agreement with leading Korean carrier SK Telecom, to reach the company's 20 million+ subscribers.
