You probably expected thatPopCap's next Facebook game would keep the Blitz name strong, but did you expect it to go off the deep end? No, the Bejeweled Blitz creator didn't go insane, it went underwater with its newest social game, Solitaire Blitz.

PopCap has announced thatSolitaire Blitz will formally launch on Facebook this March. The EA-owned game studio's social take on Solitaire sneaked onto Facebook recently in a live test, but already looked polished enough for release save some needed tweaks.
It's safe to say that PopCap is working on those tweaks right now to ensure Solitaire Blitz is ready for its big debut in March. Well, Solitaire Blitz will technically launch before then, as PopCap will employ a "gradual beta launch" until it becomes available to all Facebook gamers. In fact, Solitaire Blitz will be on display at PopCap's publisher's Spotlight EA events in the U.S. and Europe today.
Solitaire Blitz is an aquatic-themed version of the classic card game with PopCap's trademark Blitz play hook dutifully applied. Solitaire Blitz has players dig for buried treasure by running down stacks of cards in numerical order. And of course, it wouldn't be a Blitz game without numerous power-ups and friendly leaderboards.
