Following in Nintendo's Mobile Footsteps, Sony is digging out some Classic Mascots for its Mobile Drive!
Japan's Sony Corp will release as many as six smartphone games in the next financial year, hoping that its own gaming franchises can replicate the success of console rival Nintendo Co's Pokemon GO.
Sony is bringing back to live some very old classic games from its early PlayStation days, but will it be enough to allow Sony to finally make a dent in the mobile world, they have tried a few times and each time failed at it big time, but this time they are not locking them down to a special network or device, and releasing them normally via the Apple and Google app stores for all to enjoy again!
You can find a full list over on the Japanese PlayStation Blog site linked below, but here are the top ten titles to be released:
Of course alot of these games most likely will never appear if ever in the Western World, but at least its a start for Sony in supporting the growing trend of playing games on our mobile handheld devices that are also phones and can browse the web and do so much more than just play games.
