Fruit Ninja NFC (new NFC content at Nokia Store, not Ovi Store)

| October 31, 2011 | 9 Replies

Jared Morgan emailed us to share some news of a NFC section. He notes in particular Fruit Ninja NFC.


Fruit Ninja is a juicy action game with squishy, splatty and satisfying fruit carnage! Become the ultimate bringer of sweet, tasty destruction with every slash. 
Swipe up across the screen to deliciously slash fruit like a true ninja warrior. With three games modes the addictive gameplay will keep you coming back for even higher scores.
Fruit Ninja now has our first phase of NFC functionality. Simply perform the NFC handshake with another Nokia 500, 600 or 700 to unlock content.

Something else Jared points out is that there’s a difference in content available for Nokia and Ovi Store. Try it out for yourself, you’ll see items disappear in that you can see in

    nokia 500 has NFC?

  • Punching Bag

    Coming to N9?

  • One thing is for sure. NFC is only going to become more common.

    I would keep doing searches while you are not logged in to and track the growth.

    The interesting thing about NFC in phones is that you need two factors:

    1. A market that uses Nokia extensively.
    2. Friends that have the same tech and game interests as you.

    I can see forums and communities being built around NFC content.

    Possibly using geo-location as a way of finding out who is running Angry Birds with Magic, or Fruit Ninja NFC so you can get some free levels.

    Do you agree?

      Not necessarily.. Quite a number of us know already that u can unlock ur Angry Bird levels with any NFC equipped card/passport if u tap ur phone to the item while u’re having the app running.. 😉

  • D_G

    is this available on N9?

    can the N9 connect to blackberry bold 9900 through NFC?

  • I badly need this on my N9!

  • Windows phones are not equipped with NFC

    Bonjours à tous =)
    Je voudrait télécharger cette application sur mon Nokia 500 est ce possible ? dans l’annonce de Ovi on parle de “remplir la poignée de main avec un autre Nokia NFC 500, 600 ou 700 à débloquer du contenu.” ça veut dire quoi ?

    Merci beaucoup
