PopCap’s iOS Sales Bring in $200,000 for Japan Relief

PopCap’s iOS Sales Bring in $200,000 for Japan Relief

This past Friday, we shared the news of PopCap having a two-day sale on all their iOS titles in order to raise funds for those affected by the natural disasters in Japan. PopCap announces today that the sale brought in $200,000; all of which is to be donated to earthquake relief in Japan.

Partnered with the International Red Cross, PopCap pledged all the proceeds to the victims suffering from the recent disasters. The titles included Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants vs. Zombies. Plants vs. Zombies had recently made its way to the top of the Japanese sales chart and PopCap felt that it was “the most appropriate game to feature in this fundraising campaign.”

Along with PopCap’s sale, Capcom and Sega pledged to donate the proceeds from their respective iOS titles, Street Fighter 4 and Sonic. PaRappa the Rapper‘s developer Masaya Matsuura and OneBigGame also have made the announcement that all DLC from their title WINtA will “directly support Save the Children in setting up a network of child friendly spaces for children in the worst affected areas of Japan.”
