PopCap announces Bejeweled 2 for Nintendo WiiWare

PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual video games, today announced the launch of Bejeweled® 2 for WiiWare™.

Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of Bejeweled, and adapted and optimized for console play on the Nintendo Wii™, Bejeweled 2 can be purchased now via download for 1000 Wii points. Bejeweled’s arrival marks the 16th platform on which the seminal match-3 game is available, making it one of the most ubiquitous video games of the 21st century.

“Bejeweled 2 for WiiWare delivers a host of exclusive features and capabilities that take full advantage of the Nintendo Wii, and catapult the Bejeweled franchise to new heights,” noted Ed Allard, head of worldwide studios at PopCap. “Along with enthralling gameplay from the original Mac/PC versions, the Wii version integrates customizable Mii characters and global leaderboards, and uses unique control systems that feature the Wii Remote – all of which add new dimensions of fun and excitement to the Bejeweled experience.”

Bejeweled 2 for WiiWare delivers PopCap’s classic match-three puzzle action with all of the non-stop gameplay featured in four original game modes – Action, Classic, Endless, and Puzzle. Along with beautiful planetary backgrounds and the ability to pick up and play quickly and easily, Bejeweled 2 also showcases many features exclusive to the Wii:

Mii Integration:  Your Mii keeps track of your stats, scores and progress in Bejeweled 2.  They are also with you in gameplay and react to a good match, or a huge cascade.

Global Leaderboards:  See how you stack up against other players worldwide as you compare scores in Classic and Action mode.

Local Leaderboards:  Battle for Bejeweled supremacy in your very own house.  Use your Mii to keep track of scores locally and compare them to your friends and family.

Unique Controls: Enjoy four different control schemes that feature the Wii Remote, and the optional Classic Controller and the Nunchuk.
