The popular bubble-popping game Bubble Witch Saga, inspired as it is by witchcraft lore, is inherently suited to the Halloween season. But with a little bit of jingly bells and lots and lots of snow, it could be a great game for the holidays as well. And how: with its latest update, Bubble Witch Saga has gotten into the holiday spirit with new holiday-themed music and graphics. For one thing, the game's map has been transformed into a winter wonderland. In addition, the bubbles waiting to be popped have been decorated with holiday symbols. What's more, Bubble Witch Saga's holiday-themed update delivers 20 new bubble-shooting levels. In addition, a "fantastic holiday gift" is said to await longtime players who play after Dec. 25.

The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later. Bubble Witch Saga is developed by King as part of the social gaming company's hugely successful series of Saga games. King's Saga game series includes the block-blasting Pet Rescue Saga, the Peggle-like Papa Pear Saga, and, of course, the match-three game Candy Crush Saga. Pet Rescue Saga was updated with a new episode and a new map late last month, while Papa Pear Saga was updated with a couple of new episodes last week. Also last week, Candy Crush Saga was updated with an expansion that introduced a new Dreamworld setting with a new gameplay mechanic.
