The partnership will bring much loved titles such as Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light exclusively to Android on Xperia PLAY in November 2011. More established hits from Square Enix will then follow in the coming months.

“With a unique control pad and immersive graphics that enable an enriched gaming experience, Xperia PLAY is bringing a unique and exciting dimension to smartphone gaming,” said Ben Cusack, Head of Mobile for Square Enix Europe.

“This is just the start of what we plan to do together, but right now, we are delighted to be able to show off the full potential of our games with this innovative smartphone, bringing them to life as our creators intended.”

“Xperia PLAY continues to redefine smartphone gaming. By bringing some of the world’s most popular console games to the Xperia PLAY we’re delivering an unrivalled smartphone gaming experience,” said Tim Harrison, Head of Content & Marketing Strategy for Sony Ericsson.

“And this is still really only just the beginning – we will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with new games and new experiences optimized for Xperia PLAY, ensuring that consumers have the best gaming possible experience on a smartphone, whatever games they are in to.”
