SEGA to Develop Palm OS Gaming API
In an effort to vastly streamline the delivery of mobile games content to Palm OS devices, Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector announced plans to enhance its industry-leading DragonBall MX1 and Super VZ microprocessors with a portable game application programming interface (API) software from SEGA Corporation.
In conjunction with Motorola and Metrowerks, a Motorola company, Sega will develop this API for next-generation Palm Powered devices. The game API will be integrated into future versions of Metrowerks' CodeWarriorTM development tools for the Palm OS platform. In addition, Sega Corporation will license the game API to developers.
Under the terms of the alliance, Motorola plans to optimize the hardware capabilities that accelerate SEGA 3D game applications on its DragonBall platform. Developers will be able to create this software using the CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and toolset from Metrowerks. To ensure that the SEGA games software runs on the DragonBall processor and integrates seamlessly with the CodeWarrior IDE, both Motorola and Metrowerks plan to work closely with SEGA as the games software giant crafts comprehensive Palm OS game applications and libraries.
"Palm OS leads the worldwide handheld computing market. Our alliance with Motorola and Metrowerks puts us firmly in a leadership role in this market," said Tetsu Kayama, COO at SEGA Corporation. "We are proud that we will deliver Sega's gaming content to the DragonBall microprocessor family. We expect that the mutual development of Sega's gaming API for next-generation Palm Powered devices and integration into the next-generation Code Warrior® IDE will accelerate developers in the delivery of premium portable gaming content."
