Bejeweled Twist


The series that put PopCap on the map is getting another installment. The company has just announced Bejeweled 3. The game is set to release on December 7, perfect timing for a holiday gift for the match-3 fan in your family. The game will feature tweaked versions of the four game modes from Bejeweled 2, along with four new game modes like Ice Storm, and Poker, and a Quest mode with 40 quests and 11 mini-games.

“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,” said PopCap co-founder and Bejeweled co-creator Jason Kapalka, in the press release. “So we’re very careful when we make changes to the core game, which is why it can take so long!”

Kapalka certainly isn’t kidding about the millions of Bejeweled fans. Between different versions and platforms, PopCap estimates that over 50 million units have been sold to date, and a new copy is sold every 4.3 seconds. Another sequel, especially one released in the holiday season, is sure to boost that number even further.
