PopCap and Sega team up?
Oct 04
A new image on Sega's arcade Facebook page teases a new Plants vs. Zombies game. It gives no information other than a name: Plants vs. Zombies: The Last Stand.

It's going to be cool, whatever it is.  We'll bring you more information on this game as soon as we get it. read
