Nokia secured a deal with Zynga to bring their super-popular Draw Something and Zynga Poker games to Nokia Asha Touch devices later this year. Both games will be free to download from the Nokia Store and will be available for the Asha 305, Asha 306 and Asha 311.
The Finnish company apparently has big plans for its entry-level touchscreen devices having secured game publishing deals with several leading companies like EA, Gameloft, NAMCO BANDAI, Rovio and now, Zynga.
Commenting on the news, Bryan Biniak, Nokia’s manager with a way-too-long-title (Vice-President & General Manager of Global Partnering & Application Development) said: “It’s great to expand our offering of Zynga games to deliver more blockbuster titles across our portfolio of mobile devices, giving consumers great choice and tremendous value.”
Launched in June, the Asha Touch range offers a “fantastic touchscreen interface, with fast browsing, social networks and, of course, great gaming at their core.” These devices will most likely sell like hot cupcakes in the emerging markets of the world.
