Nokia maps 3D Gotham City in The Dark Knight Rises tie-in [Updated]
Lumia 900, and its latest promo will be the best yet: full 3D maps of Gotham City. Previewed today in a brand new teaser video (which you’ll be able to see after the cut), the map will allow users to “explore Gotham City like never before” complete with in-universe landmarks similar to Wayne Tower.
Nokia is playing the complete details as with reference to its chest as Bruce Wayne keeps his secret identity at the down-low, but this might be pure catnip to any Batman fan. The Lumia range gets an exclusive The Dark Knight Rises app, which comes with cast info, movie showtimes, trailers and more, in addition to wallpapers and ringtones.
There’s also a location-based game, powered by Foursquare, which permits players to take the role of Batman or Bane and increase territory by checking into places, all with updates pushed to a Live Tile at the Windows Phone homescreen. It is not clear whether those checkins can have any reference to the 3D Gotham map.
We do not know when the 3D map could be released, but with The Dark Knight Rises set to hit theaters on July 20 that seems an inexpensive time for Nokia to push it out.
Update: Now we’ve some screenshots of the interface: feels like it is a desktop 3D mapping system instead of a phone app. Look into full-size shots within the gallery below.
