Despite being announced on April Fools’ this game’s no joke.

Plants Vs. Zombies
is just what it sounds like. Why did no one think of this sooner? Two brainless creatures that rise from dirt – they were bound to have a showdown!

As if this game wasn’t already gonna be a cult classic, there’s an insanely catchy music video (English & Japanese version below). No specifics have been released yet but judging by the video, Plants vs. Zombies is a tactical role-playing game similar to Final Fantasy Tactics. Naturally the plants protect the people who planted them. The only real question is whether you can play as the zombies.

The release date is: 5-5-09 and will most like cost $19.95 like the rest of popcap’s games. You can sign up for news alerts and 10% @ popcap.com

Japanese Lyrics:
“Uraniwa ni Zombies ga!”
by Laura Shigihara (mybluedream.com)
Himawari

(chorus)
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie wa dete ita

(verse 1)
Zombie wa kowai gaikotsu
Hanabira zenbu o toritagaru
Sono ato atama wo tabetagaru
Tadano Himawari
Dakedo watashi wa tsuyoi!
Noumiso ga suki
Zombie wa kirai

(pre-chorus 1)
Softball de asonda yo!
Helmetto wo kabutta zo!
Screen door wo motta zo!
Oretachi Zombie, Zombie, Zombie da!

(chorus)
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie wa dete ita

(verse 2)
Uraniwa de asobitai
Atama wo taberu no yamenasai
Noumiso niwa cholesterol ga ippai
Shinda node kankei nai kedo
Solar power de tatakau yo
Shokubutsu wo mamoru tame

(pre-chorus 2)
Sono sanrinsha choudai
Atama ni butter ga kuttsui jata
Noumiso taberu zo!
Oretachi Zombie, Zombie, Zombie da!

(chorus)
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie ga yatte kita
Zombie wa dete ita
