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.
