Electronic Arts would soon debut the popular and awaited "Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville" on the Nintendo Switch, featuring a third-person shooting game experience from the popular franchise. "PvZ" has evolved from its campaign and strategy defense game genre to various game modes including the soon-releasing action-adventure.
"There's a zombie on your lawn," was one of the most iconic hits that came to players who have finished the popular tower defense game called "Plants vs. Zombies" which was developed by Pop Cap Games. Now, the game evolved into a franchise that was mainly marketed as a game for young teens and coming-of-age brackets.
"Plants Vs. Zombies" has a total of five games on its franchise, stemming from the PC and smartphone applications of the first game that brought "Plants vs. Zombies 2," "Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 1," "Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2," and "Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville."
These titles have been widely distributed to almost all gaming platforms available, including the PC Windows, Apple iOS, Google Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and its most recent, the Nintendo Switch.
