Nintendo of America Inc. and GTE Interactive Media have teamed up to produce video games in a "collaboration aimed at eventually channeling games over telephone lines into interactive" TV sets. The two companies announced that they have agreed to develop, market and distribute video games, as well as explore new technologies. They will preview the their first collaborative effort -- a game called FX Fighter -- at the Consumer Electronics Show this weekend in Las Vegas.
