Popcap Announce Plants Vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time

PopCap have announced a follow-up to their hugely successful tower defence title Plants Vs Zombies, subtitled “It’s About Time.” Filled to the brim with Back to the Future references and unveiling a few new plant types, the trailer is the hilarious good fun that made PopCap’s games so popular in the first place. Plants Vs Zombies 2 will have you defending your lawn across time and space, although how much of an affect that will have on actual gameplay won’t be seen until the game releases next month.

The trailer, which reintroduces the Crazy Dave character (including his unusual mode of speech), is fully CGI and doesn’t show any gameplay. It’ll be released iOS devices on July 18th, and if previous PopCap releases are anything to go by, you can expect more or less anything with a screen to be supported over the next few months. The free-to-play app will have in-game purchases, although the game is fully playable completely without charge.

Expect more details and a full reveal at E3, next week.
