PopCap Games - which is soon to join the EA family - has signed an agreement to pre-load a number of its games on Sony Ericsson Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro smartphones, marking the ‘official’ arrival of PopCap games on Android devices in Europe.
The deal will roll out later this summer, with the full version of Chuzzle being pre-installed along with unlimited trial versions of other games, such as Peggle and Plants vs Zombies.
Giordano Bruno Contestabile, PopCap’s senior director of global product and business strategy for mobile, said “We are delighted to partner with Sony Ericsson to fulfill our promise to Android users and bring PopCap’s hit mobile games to an ever-widening base of smartphone users. As the Android ecosystem matures, PopCap is committed to providing best-in-class game experiences for Android game players. The Sony Ericsson Xperia mini devices are equipped with superior processing power and exceptional screen resolution on the Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine, which provides an excellent platform for delivering the quality fun that our fans have come to expect.”
