See PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies Party!

PoPCap Games recently held a special “Part-ee” in San Francisco to show off the Xbox LIVE version of Plants vs. Zombies. There were great costumes, delicious cupcake pixel art, and an especially sweet live performance of the Plants vs. Zombies themesong by Laura Shigihara. Check out the photos and video below!

Above: The highlight of the event was Laura Shigihara’s live performance of the Plants vs. Zombies theme song. We love her bright, lilting voice

The XBLA version of Plants vs. Zombies will bring two new multiplayer modes to the table. You can now team up to hold off hordes of the undead or face off in a special challenge mode. PopCap is also introducing a customized house that will let you track and share your progress. There will also be a new mini-game and, of course, achievements.

    @dynamicjul MJ's dead so it would seem disrespectful I wonder if they changed his dance to?

    That really looked like a fun time. I absolutely love PvZ! PopCap is the one exception to the 'casual gaming sucks' rule. The trailer was pretty epic, too...crap, I might have to buy my third version of this game(PC and iPod included).

    @DynamicJul Becuase Michael Jackson's estate objected to the image, citing that Dancing Zombie looks too much like MJ. Instead of going through a legal battle, Pop Cap changed it to the Disco Stu Zombie you see.

    The trailer was great. Pop Cap is awesome.

    That new Dancing Zombie made me cry! Why did they have to change it? Now it just sucks.

    seems like it was really fun

    I'm really interested in how this will control on the Xbox 360 without a mouse.
