Bejeweled 3 Set To Distract You From Work Next Month
Posted on Monday, November 1 @ 22:34:48 Eastern by Daniel BischoffWhatever PopCap is doing is worth noting. In this case, announcing a sequel and releasing it in the next month is pretty freaking awesome.
Set for a December 7th release, PopCap announced Bejeweled 3 today. It was if millions of employers' voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.
Bejeweled 3 will bring with it a handful of new mini-games and a quest mode with even more ways to play. Here's the rundown straight form the developer:
So you still don't understand the hubbub? Why should anyone care about Bejeweled 3? Bejeweled practically made PopCap what it is today. You wouldn't have Plants vs. Zombies without Bejeweled. Much like PopCap's current gardening hit, Bejeweled has been sold across 17 different platforms, including the cell phone I had when I was in middle school.
Pushing 50 million copies of the game is nothing to shake a stick at either.
Don't worry fans, this isn't a cash in. Jason Kapalka, co-founder of PopCap games said of Bejeweled 3 that
"The challenge in creating a new version of Bejeweled is to innovate and keep it fresh and exciting without losing touch with the game-play that millions of people love. So we're very careful when we make changes to the core game, which is why it can take so long!
"We've worked hard to make sure Bejeweled 3 retains the classic appeal of the earlier games while bringing a host of exciting new features to the table."
I recently spent over 100 hours on Plants vs. Zombies. I'll trust PopCap that they've got something good set up for Bejeweled 3.
