Along with the new device announcements at Nokia World, several major apps and games also have been announced as “coming soon” to Windows Phone 8 devices. Instagram, Vien and Flipboard aside, there are a lot of big games coming to the platform too, albeit a bit later than its Android and iOS counterparts. Some of the big names include Asphalt 8: Airborne, Temple Run 2 and Danger Dash. Other notable additions are My Talking Tom, which has been a favorite on iPhones for a long time, and Ubisoft’s Rabbid Big Bangs and the popular platformer Rayman Fiesta Run.

These have been detailed in the official Windows Blog along with several other apps that are coming in a few weeks to Windows Phone. Lets see the details then.

With the new Snapdragon 800 processor and the Adreno 330 GPU on the 1520, gaming just got way more serious on windows phone. So, titles like Asphalt 8: Airborne are being optimized for the full HD experience. Both the games are listed as coming soon.

Ubisoft’s games –

Rayman Fiesta Run

Ubisoft is bringing a new platformer set in the Rayman fan-favorite, Gourmand Land, to Nokia. Rayman Fiesta Run is full of adventure and surprises as you race through the tasty environment made of food and cooking supplies. Coming soon

And finally, the highly anticipated and much awaited Temple Run 2 is coming soon to Windows Phone. I have personally heard people losing faith in Windows Phone because of lack of these popular games, so this one should be great for many people who are waiting on the fence.

Temple Run 2

The sequel to the smash hit endless runner that took the world by storm. Temple Run redefined mobile gaming, and the sequel delivers even more exhilarating running, jumping, turning, and sliding. Navigate perilous cliffs, zip lines, mines and forests as you try to escape with the cursed idol. How far can you make it? Coming soon

We’ll see if we can get a demo of these apps and games from the show floor, but for now, hang tight and stay tuned to the blog more hands on images and videos of the new Nokia devices and software announced at Nokia World today.
