Blizzard's Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft now available for iPad in Australia, New Zealand and Canada

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment's new fast-past, fun and frenetic card game for iPad, is now available for download from the App Store — if you're in Australia, New Zealand, or Canada, that is. Here's why, according to the Blizzard blog:

Launching Hearthstone in a limited set of countries allows us to focus on the end-to-end player experience and make sure it’s awesome before we move on to the rest of the world. If you don’t live in Australia, Canada, or New Zealand, you don’t have much longer to wait to get your hands on Hearthstone for iPad—Murloc Scout’s honor.

It's a fully featured Heathstone experience, however, with all the deck-building, friend-dueling excitement of the desktop version made mobile and put at your fingertips. Data and collections are synced between Mac, Windows, and iPad, so you can stay in perfect Warcraft harmony, even on the go.

If you're in one of the test countries and you try Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, let me know what you think!
