N.O.V.A. 2 Timed Android Exclusive For Xperia Play

The follow-up to Gameloft’s best selling iDevice FPS will be an exclusive launch title for the Sony Ericson Xperia Play for one month. N.O.V.A. 2 (you know, the one that looks nothing like a certain other sci-fi shooter with four letters in the name) will be available on other Android phones after the exclusivity deal runs out.

Gameloft have another Xperia Play timed exclusive title in development so let’s have a little guess as to what has ‘influenced’ this new title. It’s a free-roaming action-adventure called ‘Backstab’ and features stabbing,  sword fights, a ‘dynamic combat system’ which involves counter attacks and races. However it’s not set in Rome, it has an 18th century pirate theme.

  1. N.O.V.A. 2 is already on the App Store, isn’t it a bit late to do a timed exclusivity deal for it? Unless Gameloft are going to pull it off for a month and stick it back on there when the deal expires?

    • Ah, my bad – its the Android version that’s exclusive to Xperia. Have amended, thanks for pointing it out. It’s late. Or something.

      • No worries :) The way some of these deals go it wouldn’t have surprised me if they really had pulled it from the App Store for a month!

  2. Mobile gaming sure has moved on from Snake…
    One day, Gameloft are going to rip something off too closely and get hit with a lawsuit. Until then, though…

  3. lol i love the sub heading.

  4. Ooo – yep will ge this when the phone appears :-)
