Hey folks, it’s Greg again over at PopCap Games. You may recall that I made a post a few weeks ago announcing our multi-title publishing deal with Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) to bring our hit casual games to the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation Network. We also announced our first title in the partnership, the puzzle classic Bejeweled 2, on PSN that day. Since then, the community has responded in a big way, and Bejeweled 2 is a hit! We’ve been blown away by how well-received the game has been on the PSN. All I can say is, thank you!
Today I’m pleased to announce the availability of our next title, the action puzzle smash hit Zuma, on PSN! Zuma is one of our biggest and most popular games of all time, and it’s one of those games that truly appeals to hardcore and casual gamers alike. It’s just the right blend of action and strategy, with a healthy dose of skill and a bit of luck as well. I’m very happy with how great the game looks on the PS3 and how well the controls map to the PS3 controller. And, like the case with Bejeweled 2, Zuma includes an absolute ton of gameplay – 13 temples, more than 50 levels of puzzle fun, Adventure and Gauntlet modes, unlockables and more. The game looks and sounds great in HD with Dolby 5.1 surround sound, and includes exclusive features like Trophy support and PSP remote play, which you’ll only find on PSN.
In collaboration with our partners at SOE, the team has worked hard to bring our biggest franchises and most popular games – Bejeweled 2 and Zuma – to you first, for your immediate enjoyment on PSN. Both of these games are puzzle classics that everyone should have in their collection, and frankly, never get old. I am really excited that we were able to get this second title out to you guys so quickly after the release of Bejeweled 2. The team is hard at work on the other three titles we’ve announced – Peggle, Feeding Frenzy and Heavy Weapon – and we plan to release those to you later this year.
In the meantime, kick back, relax and download a game of Zuma tonight. Enjoy!
