LG announced on Monday its new Game World Smart TV portal, which gives users access to a library of paid and free titles in 2D and 3D.

The games store will be exclusive to LG´s CINEMA 3D line, and will let users search for, purchase and maintain a collection of games in nine categories -- action, adventure, arcade, puzzle, RPG, shooter, simulation, sports and strategy.

Users can then play the games with LG´s Magic Remote or other third-party controllers.

"Game World is a wonderful source of games — especially 3D games — which are suitable for everyone," Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company, told VentureBeat.

"Many popular titles will be available along with games developed exclusively for LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs. By making the most of the capabilities of LG 3D TVs, Game World will allow us to push the boundaries of 3D gaming and expand the market."

Although the company´s announcement did not mention any specific titles, a promotional image for the service prominently displays Cut the Rope, Shadowgun, Plants vs. Zombies and Air Penguin 3D.

Most of Game World´s titles will be family-friendly, LG said.

The new portal will be launched in September in global markets.
