Historically, "The Fast and the Furious" franchise is the best-selling movie-based and racing franchise in mobile gaming with seven game releases and more than 15 million paid downloads to date. "Fast Five The Movie: Official Game" will be available for mobile phones, smartphones and tablets on April 28, the day before the action-thriller's release on April 29, 2011. Here is more info and a trailer:
In a truly faithful recreation of the high-speed action from the movie, players will control Brian O?Conner, a wanted fugitive who must assemble the best drivers to evade being captured. At the wheel of the main character?s cars, including the 2011 Dodge Challenger, players will tear through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong and the Dominican Republic while avoiding obstacles that turn up from explosions, structure collapses and vehicle crashes in real time, making this one of the most immersive and attractive games in its genre.
