With just a few days remaining until the Gizmondo launches in North America, Tiger Telematics has announced the software line-up for its new handheld.
A total of 14 games will be available for the Gizmondo from day one - topping the bill are EA's SSX 3 and FIFA, followed by SCI's Richard Burns Rally and arcade puzzler Sticky Balls from Gizmondo Studios.
Other launch day titles include Trailblazer, an updated version of the retro classic, Toy Golf, Gizmondo Motocross, Hockey Rage, Pocket Ping Pong, Point of Destruction and two Classic Compendiums. The Fathammer Classics pack, comprised of puzzle game Super Drop Mania, racer Stunt Car Extreme and top-down shooter Angel Fish, will also be available at launch.
It's been confirmed that a further seven "big hitters" will be released over the coming weeks, including Chicane, Hit & Myth, Conflict: Vietnam and Carmageddon. Third person action adventure Colors, billed as "The world's first ever GPS-enabled handheld game," is also slated to launch before Christmas. All games are supplied on SD card, and prices range from $19.99 to $39.99.
The standalone Gizmondo unit will retail for $229, with a special software bundle priced at $399. Sat-nav software Gizmondo Navigator 2006 will also go on sale this weekend, priced at $169 for regional versions or $249 for the USA-wide one.
