Windows Phone 8 to get 12 games by Gameloft, N.O.V.A. 3, Order & Chaos Online are on the list
So, you have your mind set on getting a Windows Phone 8 smartphone, but you are still wondering what kind of games the platform will have to offer. Well, here is a clue: Gameloft announced that it will launch 12 of its popular games to Microsoft's platform, including titles like Order & Chaos Online, N.O.V.A. 3, and Asphalt 7: Heat.

All games will be integrated with Xbox for Windows Phone 8, so players will be able to submit scores to online leaderboards and unlock achievements. Also through Xbox, gamers will have the chance to play online against real opponents. Online multiplayer will be enabled in six of Gameloft's twelve upcoming WP8 titles. Release dates and prices have not been disclosed yet, but we hope to learn more pretty soon.

The list of games that Gameloft will bring to Windows Phone 8 includes:

  • The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Asphalt 7: Heat
  • The Dark Knight Rises
  • Fashion Icon
  • Ice Age Village
  • Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour
  • N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance

  • Shark Dash
  • Texas Poker for Prizes
  • UNO & Friends

I am really impressed with the Windows phone so far and the addition of these games are making a compelling arguement for a WP handset to be my secondary phone

Android didn't come up with 500,000 apps from the first go...it took them time!!
Windows will follow the same trend... But i can see that it's getting better and better!! :)

"Temple Run, and many other Unity Engine-based games are coming to Windows Phone 8 (previous WP versions didn't support Unity)."

From yesterday's WP8 launch event

So, twelve games for next year?
They will release 35 this year only on android and IOS .

Still, this is good enough of a start for WP

what about the original Nova and Nova 2. that'd be like watching the dark night rises before watching the first two sequels

Yay??? I don't play a single Gameloft game. Back when they had the 99cent sale, I bought like 10 games. They were huge in size and ate up my iPad's storage. I played each for five minutes, saw how generic and ugly the games were, and removed each one. No where near console quality, of any generation. You may have the horsepower, but you don't have the production values nor the time. More like amateur projects or forced labor products. And what do you expect for 99cents? The good games cost money, and when the prices go up, so do the pirates, so no developer even bothers with any GOOD games on mobile.

Stick to the puzzle and 99cent stuff, the 30second bite-sized games that are touch-friendly.

BS
This makes me doubt you ever played NOVA 3 and Modern Combat 3 ..

Those shooters are full blown games that can actually compare to COD and HALO from 7-5 years ago
