Apple Launches App Store Games Category For Costa Rica, Qatar

In a recent email sent out to iOS developers, Apple has confirmed that a “Games” category has launched in its Costa Rican and Qatari App Stores.

The news comes following a similar move made earlier this year, when Apple launched iOS games in the South African App Store. Now, iDevice users in Costa Rica and Qatar can enjoy browsing through a new selection of iOS games in their local App Stores, too.

For iOS developers, games will appear by default in the Costa Rican and Qatari App Stores, provided their applications have been approved for sale in each country. Here's a screenshot of the email Apple sent out to developers, in which the news was confirmed:
