Plants vs. Zombies vs. cryptic images: PvZ 2 details on the way?

Plants vs. Zombies, presumably the most popular piece of media ever about one incredibly fertile patch of soil’s bid to end the zombie apocalypse, could be getting ready to sprout a sequel, if an image released by PopCap is any indication.

As you can see, it depicts a zombie hand asking that we pencil it in for August 2. To which we reply: it’s good to see that the Left 4 Dead mascot hand managed to find work during a down year.

You’ll also notice the “S.F.” bit, presumably a reference to San Francisco, California. Our best guess? Either PvZ 2′s packing its seed bags and moving to a lawn somewhere in San Francisco – which would have almost no bearing on what the game looks or plays like – or an unveiling event’s taking place in good ol’ San Fran.

Granted, this could also be some kind of big bash for PvZ’s rumored retail console release. But isn’t it against the law to raise expectations so high that when you drop them, they experience atmospheric reentry unless a countdown clock is somehow involved?

Thanks, PC Gamer.

    I always play this with my 4 year old nephew. He’s actually not all that bad at it.

    My favourite moment is his mom walking in, seeing the zombies and going “Oh, zombies. It’s okay, they’re not dangerous” to which my nephew swung round and was like “Yes they are! They eat your brains!”

    I’ve taught him good.

    Love the first version, extatic about the news of the second instalment. Such a nice small on-the-go puzzle game that breezed in on steam at such a low price that you’d be a fool to not buy it and cave into it’s charms immediately.

    Just beginning to wonder what types of insane Zombies they will conjure up next, and to be honest, how can they beat the Michael Jackson ‘Thriller’ zombie with backup dancers attached?

    …A Mario zombie that jumps over obstacles while belting out astronomical decibel destroying exaltational, “WHOO HOOO’s” and ,” YIPEEE’s” and shoots fireballs perhaps?

    Enjoyed the first one very much. It was addicting as hell. Already looking forward to the date mentioned.
