If you’ve ever played Insaniquarium or Bejeweled, then you know the world deserves a taste of both of these games. PopCap Games will be taking its casual games titles to Japan under a new distribution deal inked with Square Enix. The games will be distributed though Square Enix’s online web portal.
“We know that our games are ideally suited for the global consumer audience and this agreement with Square Enix will enable us to reach the Japanese market in a major way,” commented James Gwertzman, director of business development for PopCap Games.
“There’s simply no better partner in Japan for PopCap than Square Enix - in terms of industry presence, distribution channels, passion for quality games of all kinds and overall expertise,” he added.
The first four titles to be distributed will all be available as free trials with the ability to purchase over the download service. Additional titles are promised in the coming months.
