Plants vs Zombies Invades Nintendo DS

David Brown

PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual video games, announced today the North American release of Plants vs Zombies for the Nintendo DS. The game will feature all of the engaging gameplay that was in the PC edition including Adventure, Survival and Puzzle modes. There is also the addition of multiplayer action and four all-new, exclusive mini-games as well as 14 achievements.

The game is available today for the low price of $19.95. If you are looking for a DSiWare version of the game, you can look forward to that in the coming weeks. The DSiWare version will contain Adventure mode, the mini-games from the DS adaptation and an exclusive mini-game known as Zombie Trap. For more information on the all new mini games and achievements, please keep reading.

Four All-New and Exclusive Mini-Games

Air Raid: As a pilot flying repeater, players have to dodge, weave and shoot their way to victory in this side-scrolling shooter-style mini-game

Home Run Derby: In a wacky marriage of zombies and baseball, players hit home runs to score sun. But they’ll have to watch out for the oncoming, sporty hordes of some all-new zombies.

Heat Wave: It’s a real scorcher! Players have only a few plants and they tire out quickly. Swap them around with the stylus and cheer them up with the microphone!

BOMB All Together: Players will blast zombies into the hereafter, but they’ll have to use their plants wisely; there’s a limited supply.
