Capcom’s Smurfs’ Village comes to select Android devices tomorrow

Finally, the popular Smurfs’ Village game is set to come to Android tomorrow, but on select devices only. This is an awesome addition to Android, especially since Smurfs’ Village for iOS has consistently been on Apple’s Top Grossing chart in the App Store since its launch. So there shouldn’t be any doubt that this game will be on the top list in the Android Market as well.

The way this game works is Papa Smurf directs each player on how to build up a village with specialized houses, gardens, crops, bridges, and paths. What’s neat is this game is free to play, with Capcom making its money through in-app purchases of premium currency Smurfberries, which models the same type of approach you’d find on a game like FarmVille.

As far as availability is concerned, users on select devices running Android 2.2 and up will have access to this game, details of exactly which devices are meant to be seen, as the app becomes available tomorrow.

Beeline is responsible for all of Capcom’s stable of smartphone games, which includes four titles: Monster Pet Shop, Zombie Cafe, Lil’ Pirates and the soon to be released Smurfs’ Village. Smurfs’ Village has been ranked as the number one top grossing app in 62 countries and consistently places in the top ten grossing apps worldwide.

Honestly, I’m not much of a gamer, but it’s pretty nice to see the Smurfs come to Android in a game that peaks my interest a bit, and it’ll be interesting to see how much appeal this app will get from the true gamers out there.
