Namco Networks has partnered with iPhone developer Firemint to bring the popular air traffic management sim Flight Control to Java, Windows Mobile, Brew, and Android platforms in July. Flight Control has sold over two million units since its launch in March of 2009, and was the second application in Apple's App Store to surpass the sales milestone. A Nintendo DSiWare version of Flight Control is set to debut on February 19th. Firemint previously collaborated with Namco Networks in the development of Rolling with Katamari, a mobile-exclusive entry in Namco Bandai's Katamari Damacy series. "We are honored to work with a company that is considered to be an innovator in our space," said Namco Networks VP of sales and marketing Scott Rubin. "Collaborating with Firemint to provide casual game lovers with a mobile version of the top selling brand is a proud moment. The Flight Control experience transfers perfectly to the targeted mobile platforms because of the intuitive controls and pure simplicity." Firemint CEO Robert Murray comments, "Having sold over two million copies on the iPhone in under a year, Flight Control has achieved amazing success. Our partnership with Namco began over three years ago with our development of Rolling with Katamari and we couldn't be more thrilled to be working with them again. It will be a great feat to see our game reach an even broader demographic with the mobile edition."
