“PopCap World” Announced

PC News Arcade Family POPCAP

PopCap Games has announced a partnership with NCsoft to bring online and mmo games to Korea later this year.  This new project called “PopCap World” is the first game coming out of PopCap’s Shangai studio.  “PopCap World” will launch with 13 of PopCap’s games including Bejeweled, Plants vs. Zombies and Zuma.  “Super Zuma” will be an exclusive game for the service and is described as “an all new multi-player experience.”  All the games will be free with the option to pay for premium content.  Although “PopCap World” was only announced for Korea, it appears that Popcap Games has very big plans.  James Gwertzman, PopCap’s Vice President for Asia/Pacific, said, When Disneyland first opened, it revolutionized the amusement park industry and ushered in the era of the modern theme park. In the same way, we believe PopCap World has the potential to redefine casual games in Korea and beyond by offering players the most immersive PopCap experience yet.  Our announcement today is just the beginning. We are very excited about our partnership with NCsoft – their formidable presence in the online market combined with PopCap’s leadership in the casual and social spaces makes for an interesting recipe that we look forward to serving up to players in Korea – and beyond.”
