Nokia’s N-Gage service is a bit like Dracula as portrayed by the Castlevania series; it’s able to resurrect and revamp itself in a variety of forms, but in the end, its grandiose plans are thwarted by some guy with a whip. Or a lack of consumer interest. Whichever. So sayeth the N-Gage blog:

“N-Gage games can be purchased until the end of September 2010. While the N-Gage.com site together with the N-Gage Arena and other community features will remain in operation throughout 2010, the Ovi Store will be the new central place for all the mobile games that Nokia and other publishers offer from this point forward. We will no longer publish new games for the N-Gage platform.”

Other N-Gage features – like the N-Gage Arena and N-Gage.com – will recieve the wooden stake treatment after 2010.
