Electronics Arts (EA), an interactive entertainment company, and Indiagames, a distributor of mobile entertainment, have announced an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement to bring EA’s roster of mobile games to consumers across multiple mobile carriers in India.

The games initially released through Indiagames will include ‘Need for Speed Underground 2’, ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’, ‘NBA Live 06’, ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06’, ‘EA Sports FIFA 06’, ‘FIFA Street 2’, ‘Madden NFL 06’, ‘SimCity’ and ‘The Sims 2’.

Jon Niermann, President and Managing Director, EA Asia Publishing, said, “Indiagames is a key partner for us as we expand our business from packaged goods to mobile content in the burgeoning Indian marketplace. They have a strong technological infrastructure and share our passion for delivering top quality entertainment on mobile phones.”
