It's Official: N-Gage Software Returns In September

As we suspected last week, Nokia has confirmed on its official blog the second coming of the N-Gage mobile gaming platform, and now the company says we'll be seeing the first games for the N-Gage v2 platform arriving this September.

Of course, the games and their N-Gage v2 software platform will be embedded in Nokia Series 60 smartphones, not in the form of the much-maligned "taco phone" pictured above. Nokia expects this to be a big deal, predicting that the hottest mobile games will be on the N-Gage v2 platform by early 2008. Somehow, we're having trouble getting excited about this.
