Plants vs Zombies Slowly Creeping on XBLA Sept. 8

The Xbox 360 version of PopCap's adorable tower defense title Plants vs. Zombies will finally see the light of day on September 8, according to IGN UK.

The confirmation comes from an event on August 2--a date many outlets presumed a sequel for the lawn-loving title would be announced.

The new Xbox Live Arcade version of the popular casual title adds a cooperative mode, where two players can fight off a horde of zombies on one lawn. Plants vs. Zombies on XBLA also features a competitive multiplayer mode, putting one player in control of the attacking zombies while the other attempts to hit a series of targets in order to claim victory as the strategic green-thumb.

Plants vs. Zombies on XBLA is priced at 1,200MS Points ($15). PopCap is currently selling a PC-based "Game of the Year" edition of the title for $19.99 on its website.
