Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time spr-out today on iOS [update]

Botanical tower defense sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2 is available now on the US App Store, and is expected to launch worldwide today after a tease on the official PvZ Facebook page. The free-to-play follow-up was due this time last month, but a delay allowed PopCap to soft-launch in Australia and New Zealand and test some of the newly implemented tech.

Mike Schramm went hands-on with PvZ 2 at E3; check out his thoughts on what to expect from the game, including the switch to freemium.

Update: In news that shouldn't shock, EA's official announcement on PvZ 2's launch notes the game will come to other platforms "later this year and beyond."
