Sony Pictures Television has announced a slate of eight new mobile games to be released in 2009 at the CTIA convention in Las Vegas. The games, based on some of the studio's feature films and television shows, and PSP (PlayStation Portable) system games, are scheduled to come out from May through December of this year. Other titles, not yet announced, may also join the line up.

"We are extremely proud of this slate and thrilled to offer our mobile partners more of the high-quality games they've come to expect from us and that consumers love to play," said Sean Carey, senior executive vice president, SPT.

The titles announced today are:

Angels & Demons, launching to coincide with the release of the film adaptation of Dan Brown's novel Angels & Demons, is set for release on May 15th, 2009. Players will relive the Angels & Demons story from the movie, investigate and discover clues using an exciting and original puzzle game mechanic, and solve the mystery of "a revenge 400 years in the making."
