By now, everyone should know what Plants vs Zombies is, I mean, how can you not? It’s been a huge hit across multiple platforms and has even been integrated into the widely popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft with their Cataclysm expansion. PopCap Games has said that a sequel to the hugely successful title is on its way. Currently, its slated for release by late Sprint of 2013, so there’s a bit of a wait. No matter though, with all of the games coming out in the next couple months it’ll feel like a breeze. Android wasn’t specifically mentioned, in fact, they didn’t mention any type of platform, but due to the popularity there is no doubt we’ll be seeing it on multiple platforms including Android.
From a unknown spokesperson, this is what we know about the new game so far:
The sequel to Plants vs. Zombies is expected to launch by late spring 2013, and will include a bevy of new features, settings, and situations, designed to delight the franchise’s tens of millions of fans around the world. No other details of the highly anticipated new installment in the franchise are available at this time, beyond the following comments from some of the game’s denizens.
“Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots,” noted an unidentified spokesperson. “So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan… we’re freee anytime. We’ll find you.”
“There was a time we relished a bracing, hearty blend of zombies, in the morning,” said Sonny F. Lower, a representative of the Flora Forever Foundation. “But first, a brisk shower and some strategic pruning are required. Tomorrow is near!”
I really like PopCap games’ work, and this really does sound like some fantastic news for Plants vs Zombies fans all over the world, but before making a sequel, I honestly think that they need to be updating their existing applications to work on newer devices. I really think that they would earn a lot more revenue and a larger fanbase if they focused on that more. The photo above is the original Plants vs Zombies and is evidence that they really haven’t optimized the game completely.
As a community, I think everyone would just like for the original game to work on newer phones that are less than a year old. The game is widely known and has a pretty big fanbase, thus by not fixing some of these bugs and optimizing the layout correctly, I think that they are losing quite a few players due to the terrible resolution on some devices.
That said, I still think they should continue on with the sequel, they may just want to dump Plants vs Zombies and head full force onto the sequel. Hopefully by doing that they will take more focus into making sure the sequel is optimized for newer devices and will continue to be optimized for newer devices. Still, I think we all want to see a few updates to the original game though.
Any thoughts on a new Plants vs Zombies sequel? Anyone looking forward to it?
