If you live in the UK and you own a Nintendo DS, I think we have some rather interesting news for you. We’ve just received word that the Nintendo DS version of PopCap’s hugely popular Plants vs. Zombies game has now been given an official UK release date.
As Mike Rose over on the pocketgamer.co.uk website recently reported, the Nintendo DS version of the tower defense action game — which sees players taking on the role of a homeowner who uses a variety of plants to fight off an army of zombies — has already been released in the US.
UK gamers on the other hand can look forward to the game arriving on May 6th. The DS version — which is published by Mastertronic Group in the UK — features exclusive touch-screen mini-games, multiplayer options and special Nintendo DS achievements to unlock.
The Plants vs. Zombies game was originally released for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X back in 2009. However, it was then released for iOS devices in 2010, followed by an Xbox Live Arcade version the same year. The game has also been made available for the PlayStation 3.
Not only has the game received some fantastic scores from the critics, but it’s also been nominated for several awards including the Game Developers Choice Awards for Best Download Game, Best Game Design and Innovation. It was also picked as Best Game of 2009 by Gamezebo.
