Ninja Fruit encorporates NFC

Following the launch of Angry Birds with Nokia of a NFC-based version with special unlockable content, Ninja Fruit announcements its version of an NFC enabled game. This continue the trend of looking beyond pure mobile transactions as the primary use of NFC technology.

From NFC World:

“A new version of hit video game Fruit Ninja is to be pre-loaded on the new Nokia 701, 700 and 600 Symbian NFC phones, Nokia has told NFC World.

The NFC version of Fruit Ninja will work in a similar way to the NFC version of Angry Birds — by tapping any two of these NFC-enabled devices together, users will gain extra in-game benefits or rewards. With Fruit Ninja, players will be able to unlock a special blade in the game, while with Angry Birds they get access to exclusive levels.”

From NFC Rumors:

“NFC Fruit Ninja is a “juicy action game with squishy, splatty and satisfying fruit carnage!” according to Halfbrick Studios, who is the developer of the game. “Become the ultimate bringer of sweet, tasty destruction with every slash. Swipe up across the screen to deliciously slash fruit like a true ninja warrior. With three games modes in single player the addictive gameplay will keep you coming back for even higher scores. NFC Fruit Ninja is the original and the best slasher on Nokia!” the company adds in their description on the Ovi store.”

Ninja Fruit is produced by Halfbrick – “Founded in 2001, Halfbrick has been on the forefront of the Australian game development industry for many years. Recently, after many years of developing licensed titles for platforms such as GBA, DS and PSP, Halfbrick has begun expanding its portfolio with a range of independently released games for downloadable platforms.”
