Finally: Plants vs. Zombies announced for iPhone and XBLA

No, really now. This isn’t something we’ve heard, or some vague hints — this is the real deal. A full-blown announcement. PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies is coming to both the iPhone, and as you may have heard, the Xbox Live Arcade.

As for the Xbox 360 version, they recently announced this, and the only thing the new press release says is that there is still no confirmed date for launch. The real news here is the iPhone version, which is slated to come to the App Store in the fall. No other details of this zombified tower defense port were given, but that’s fine, as I know that we’ll be playing it on the go before year’s end.

If you’re on a PC or Mac, the retail versions of Plants vs. Zombies have just hit shelves in North America at places like WalMart, Best Buy, and Target, selling for $19.95. PopCap cays that more stores will be carrying this title later this year.

I can’t wait to fend off zombies with my phone! And kill my battery!
