If you’re not aware that Nokia is relaunching the N-Gage, you should be. They’ve got it right this time, turning N-Gage into a platform that runs across (eventually) all of Nokia’s Nseries handsets. And better still, the company is coming out swinging against comparisons with Sony Ericsson’s rumoured PlayStation phone.

“I’m not scared about anybody,” says Jaakko Kaidesoja, head of games at Nokia. “The real question is how do they [Sony Ericsson] do it? Can they create a link between the PSP games and a phone? Can they do the multiplayer and online stuff? We’ve been doing this for two years and it hasn’t been easy.”

Meanwhile, Nokia is preparing to commercially release the new N-Gage application for its N82 and N95 handsets, adding to the N81, while Kaidesoja says that making N-Gage games touchscreen-compatible is also on the agenda.
