Oh, Canada. You marvelous country with your marvelous Canadian things. While we'd never want to leave the country, Nokia has shuttered its N-Gage development outfit in the region.

Its Vancouver studio was shuttered on June 30, nixing 100 or so jobs in the process. This decision seems to be part of Nokia's March announcement to cut 1,700 company wide.

This N-Gage Design Studio was responsible for a large chunk of games for the first and second gen N-Gage systems as well as mobile phone games.
