PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual games, today officially announced it is bringing the classic gameplay of Bejeweled Blitz to Xbox LIVE Arcade with availability in Quarter 1 2011. Bejeweled Blitz LIVE offers XBLA players the same fast paced 60-second action found in the popular Facebook variant of Bejeweled Blitz, but with all new modes, including 16-player simultaneous Party mode and head-to-head Battle mode over LIVE.
Beyond crystal-sharp, high-definition graphics, Bejeweled Blitz LIVE for XBLA boasts two styles of play: classic and an all new twist. In addition to real-time leaderboards driving up-to-the-minute scores from you and your friends, the game also provides the all new Friendscore. Friendscore allows you to combine your score with the scores of your Xbox LIVE friends for the highest weekly and all-time totals.
