THQ today announces that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is now available on mobile handsets the world over. This includes the iPhone, where it has been lurking for quite awhile, Nokia’s N-Gage gaming platform, and more than 850 different cellular handsets. Should you pick it up? Well Star Wars plus iPhone equals extra nerd chic of course, and Star Wars plus N-Gage equals you might as well, you obviously went out of your way for an N-Gage platform supporting phone.
As for the remaining 850 handsets, this is a good time to check and see if your phone needs upgrading. If yours isn’t one of the 850 you obviously need to step up to a newer model, unless that military field phone is part of your whole campy, retro vibe.
