Paradox Takes Europa To Handhelds

When Europa Universalis II was released in 2001 it conquered the world and became a global bestseller. Paradox Interactive is now working with Pocket PC Studios to adapt the critically acclaimed title to handheld platforms like Palm OS, Nintendo DS and Windows CE.

"Europa Universalis II is one of our most appreciated titles. As a leading force in the pocket PC entertainment business, Pocket PC Studios are the perfect partners to continue its legacy on a new platform. This additional accessibility is something that will suit the current fan base as well as attract new curious gamers", says Fredrik Lindgren, VP of Sales and Marketing at Paradox Interactive.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Pocket PC Studios and Paradox Interactive to bring this phenomenal title to mobile gamers", adds Becky Moore, Director of Business Development at Pocket PC Studios. "Europa Universalis II will be the mobile game to have in 2005."
