Plants vs. Zombies XBLA priced and dated

$15 Xbox Live Arcade version hitting "early September" with two new multiplayer modes, 12 achievements, and 21 minigames unique to the console version; boxed edition arriving at retail with Peggle and Zuma this fall for $19.99.


Call of Duty: World at War has a zombie mode, as does upcoming content for Red Dead Redemption. However, the undead in those titles don't munch the life out of plants as they do in PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies. The tower defense game that debuted on the PC and Mac last year will make its way to the XBLA in September the publisher said today.

Well, it is in their nature, isn't it?
