It’s been a long time coming, but it seems PopCap is finally ready to throw Android users a bone with the release of Plants vs Zombies 2 for Android. Announced earlier this year, the game was initially an iOS exclusive, which needless to say, rubbed many Android users the wrong way (more so after it was announced they were going with the freemium model).
Now, after weeks of waiting, Plants vs Zombies 2 has been officially ported to Android…. there’s only one small catch: this is China-only for now. Yup, Popcap revealed the news via their blog and apparently the limited release might have something to do with them ensuring their servers can handle the load before they go live in other regions. As for everyone outside of Asia, PopCap promises Plants vs Zombies will arrive sometime this fall “no matter where you live,” hinting that a Play Store release is imminent.
If you’ve been brushing up on your Mandarin and don’t mind downloading from non-Google sources, you can give the Chinese version of PvZ2 a whirl. The game is currently available via the Baidu app store with the direct download link to the apk below. Good luck getting the 56MB file to download anytime this century…
