The Sims 3, EA’s latest addition to their impossibly successful life-simulation series, went down a storm on both mobile and iPhone a little while back. Now it’s the turn of the N-Gage to get some of the action.

Head on over to the N-Gage website or Ovi Store now and you’ll be able to download a free trial of the game. From an initial glance (and early user comments) it’s looking to be very similar to the mobile version, with the addition of a landscape view, which tends to fit in with other EA N-Gage releases.

That wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, though, as the Java version really did pack in an impressive amount of content and sophistication. The blurb promises “unexpected moments of surprise and mischief,” which just about sums up the appeal of The Sims to us.

We’ll know for sure when we get some proper hands on time with the game, so keep an eye out for our review.
