    Pekka Rantala, Chief Marketing Officer of HMD Global said:

    ‘The Snake game was the most popular game in the history of Nokia phones, in fact the true origin of mobile gaming can be traced back to a Nokia handset released in 1997. To this day it has remained hugely popular, not only because it carries a strong sense of nostalgia but because this was the first ever mobile gaming experience for many consumers. The opportunity to partner with Facebook, the social media platform that has single handedly defined the social media landscape, is an incredible opportunity. We were truly excited to work with them to bring back Snake in a modern format to a global audience. We hope in its new format it unites people across the world and brings as much joy to players as it did the first time around.’

    Laurens Rutten, Founder and CEO of CoolGames, the developers of Snake on Instant Games, said:

    ‘It was a big honour that our Studio could contribute to a new release of such an iconic IP that has shaped the mobile games industry.’

    However, a revamped version of Snake will also be pre-installed on the new Nokia 3310, a head turning modern twist on one of the best-selling phones of all time, making the Snake comeback even more exciting.
