Sorry Antipodean Gamers: No Bejeweled 2 For You

PopCap confirms download title staying away from Australia and New Zealand

Fans of WiiWare in Australia and New Zealand are used to seeing titles face long delays or not make it across at all, but it still stings every time. Sadly there's more bad news: we recently interviewed PopCap's Ty Roberts who confirmed to us that Bejeweled 2 won't be heading to Nintendo's download platform Down Under.

Ty Roberts: We are working on the European release for sure. I’m hoping that will get out shortly. We’re not doing Australia or New Zealand this time around. Since we typically release digitally downloadable titles, people all over the world have access to our games already.

It's disappointing to hear this very promising title won't be available for players in Australia and New Zealand to download.
