It's a struggle as old as time itself: Plants vs. Zombies. And that epic battle of epicness is set to begin a whole new chapter next year, as PopCap Games has announced a late spring 2013 launch of Plants vs. Zombies 2.

Sadly, that's the extent of the information coming out of PopCap so far. That isn't surprising considering that the game's expected release date is nearly a year from now. That sort of timeframe smacks of initial development only just now getting underway.

Given the ginormous sales figures for the original Plants vs. Zombies, there's a pretty good chance that everyone reading this has already played the game. If you are one of the few who has managed to pass it by, however, all you need to know is that it's a strategy game that blends cutsey humor and lovely art in a struggle that pits your growing flower garden (each plant with its own special ability, of course) against slowly shambling hordes of undead monsters. Your job is to destroy them before they trample you. Makes perfect sense, yes?

While little else is known about the sequel, PopCap has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 will “include a bevy of new features, settings and situations.” What those new bits of shiny goodness could be is anyone's guess, though we're guessing it's going to have a strong focus on agriculture battling the undead.

If your interest is officially piqued and you'd like to see what all the fuss is about, you can actually play the original Plants vs. Zombies by going to the official website. After that, your wait for “late spring 2013” can officially begin.
