Qualcomm today announced that four new titles are joining their Snapdragon GamePack.  Designed as a bundle of games optimized for the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, the collection has grown to more than 100 titles.  The latest games to see their name added to the list are The Reem, Reign of Amira, The Ball, and Virtua Tennis Challenge.

It’s worth pointing out that today’s news is more of an announcement than a rollout as none of them are actually available in the Snapdragon GamePack. Also, the GamePack is currently only available to users in North America, however plans are in place to expand across the globe.

  • “Reign of Amira” – a game designed and developed by Qualcomm’s in-house gaming studio, where Princess Amira battles her enemies to retain the lost glory of the Desert Kingdom.  The game willbe exclusive to Snapdragon devices running on Android and will be available to users for free later this year.
  • “The Ball” – a highly anticipated game from Tripwire Interactive, which will be released in March 2012.  “The Ball” features Snapdragon’s integrated Adreno GPU with high-resolution visuals and will be first available to Snapdragon devices running on Android for six months.
  • “Virtua Tennis Challenge”™ – the first mobile version of this popular console game from gaming pioneer SEGA®.  The game will be available in March 2012 and is optimized on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor for the Xperia Play and features some of the next-generation sports play and graphics.
