has announced that Plants vs Zombies for PS Vita is hitting PSN today with details below.
To quote: I know it's been over a year since we last spoke, and I am sorry about that. I've just been really busy and haven't had time to write, and I swear I have not been cheating on you with the Xbox blog or anything.
Anyway, now that the awkwardness is out of the way and we're friends again, I am here to tell you that I have another exciting announcement for you! Plants Vs Zombies is coming to your brand-spankin' new PS Vita today! Yay!
If you have never played our action-puzzler – that pits a horde of horticultural heroes against a mob of fetid, undead, brain-eating zombies - there is no better time than now. The PS Vita version is darn near the most perfect version of Plants Vs Zombies yet, taking advantage of the handheld console's touchscreen and internal motion sensors.
And if you have played it before, well, why not play it again?
Think of it as training for the real zombie apocalypse, which, not to be too much of a bummer here, could be coming any day now. Why be one of the unfortunate ones who end up in some undead guy's brain sandwich? Do the responsible thing and prepare now with our game! Your loved ones will thank you later.
If you want to know what you're actually getting in this version, which I guess is a reasonable enough question, I can tell you that the PS Vita version includes all of these positively wonderful features:
• The complete, classic 50-level adventure game
• The Zen Garden
• 20 mini-games
• 18 puzzle games
• 10 survival games
• 43 Trophies, including one Platinum trophy
• The Zombatar zombie-creation tool
• Online leaderboards
All for a paltry $14.99! That's less than you'd pay at the movie theater for the latest rom-com movie and a bag of popcorn, and you'll feel less bad afterward! Or, heck, if you must see the new rom-com movie, you can bring the PS Vita with you and then boot up Plants Vs Zombies once you realize the mistake you made! Either way, it seems like you should get the game, if you ask me.
So download Plants Vs Zombies from the PlayStation Network today! Do it for humanity! And the plants! And for those of us at PopCap who have kids going to college! Don't make us beg! Because we will if we have to! Enjoy the game! Bye!
