HELSINKI May 20 (Reuters) - The world's top cellphone maker Nokia (NOK1V.HE) said on Tuesday it would add electronic entertainment firm Konami's (9766.T) games to the N-Gage mobile games platform.

One of the games added will be Metal Gear Solida Mobile, an espionage action game developed in conjunction with Ideaworks3D and using colour samples from real world scenery captured by the handset's camera.

"Metal Gear Solida on N-Gage will raise the bar with respect to graphical detail and made-for-mobile features," Director of Nokia's Third Party Games Publishing Gregg Sauter said in a statement.
