Plants vs. Zombies 2 approaching global launch on Android


Plants vs. Zombies 2 is set to reach Android "shortly," having made a "soft" (and squishy) launch in Australia and New Zealand. The Android version launched "successfully" in China last month, and this week's Australasian arrival lets PopCap further play-test the free-to-play follow-up.

PvZ 2 was shambling towards the 25 million mark for downloads at end of August.
