bej3.png Earlier this year PopCap Games released Bejeweled Blitz Live to the Xbox Live Arcade, but apparently that isn't enough jewel swapping for one year. Instead, they've revealed plans to release 2010's PC hit Bejeweled 3 to the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Nintendo DS by year's end.

Bejeweled 3 was the first real title in the games' history to get a full HD revitalization, and included a variety of new modes, including Quest, Zen, Diamond Mine and Poker variants.

While it's nice to see PopCap continuing to support consoles, it does seem a little odd to release two Bejeweled titles in the same year on the Xbox Live Arcade. What's even more bizarre is the lack of any mention of an iPad game, which is sorely missing a Bejeweled title with the iPhone version of 2 being such a huge hit, and skipping the 3DS version for a DS version, which could very easily make some great use of the 3D screen.

I'm also surprised we haven't seen their other titles, Bookworm Adventures Volume 2 and Zuma's Revenge, make their console debuts. I'm sure PopCap know what they're doing, I just want everything on everything!
