Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville – Complete Edition listed for Switch, announcement likely imminent
Last June, EA said it would be bringing seven games to Switch over the next year. A few of these titles have already been released – Burnout Paradise Remastered, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, and FIFA 21 Legacy Edition. Apex Legends and Lost in Random are also coming soon.
That leaves us with two more games. One of the mystery projects should be the upcoming title from Mario Kart Live developer Velan Studios. VentureBeat claimed several months ago that Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is also happening on Switch, and it now seems we’re getting close to an announcement.
GameFly, which is incredibly accurate when it comes to retailer listings, just put a page up for Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville – Complete Edition. It’s listed for a March 19 release. That’s a plausible date, but given how we’d be basically two months away from release, EA should be making an official announcement very soon.
As for the “Complete Edition” part of the title, EA is likely throwing in DLC that was previously offered separately on other platforms.
For those that haven’t heard of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, here’s an official overview and trailer:
