Plants vs Zombies sequel coming in 2013

In a press release by PopCap, it was announced that the sequel to Plants vs Zombies¬†“will include several new features, settings and situations.” No further details were released, except that the game will be available in the spring of 2013.

The original game featured hordes of zombies attack a home defended by plants. It proved to be a great success when it was released in May 2009,  selling over 300,000 copies in just 9 days, setting the record on the App Store.

The success of Plants vs. Zombies has also attracted the attention of Electronic Arts, which in June 2011 acquired PopCap for a billion dollars. The latest version of Plants vs. Zombies is the one for PS Vita, released this February.

In Plants vs Zombies players must use a variety of plants with different characteristics and defensive skills to counter the advancing zombies, whose objective is to devour the brains of the residents.
