During the Nintendo Direct: February 2021 stream, Electronic Arts announced Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Complete Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch on March 19, for $39.99.

“We are excited to bring everyone’s favorite Plants vs. Zombies™ characters to Nintendo Switch for the first time, giving players the ability to play in their homes or on the go, however they choose,” said Melvin Teo, Producer, PopCap Vancouver. “The Switch’s motion controls allow us to try a fresh new take on Neighborville, and with its docked and portable play, we have the ability to bring the game and its characters to life in ways that weren’t possible before.”

Battle for Neighborville is a big budget shooter evolution of the classic Plants vs. Zombies 2D tower defense. Players can play as 23 customizable plant and zombie characters as they battle through missions and defeat giant bosses. Up to four players can battle together in local multiplayer or go online for 8v8 team-based warfare.

The Complete Edition includes all the content from the original 2019 release, as well as post-launch DLC. All previous premium items have been converted to in-game unlockables, without any microtransactions.

Weird fact: Battle for Neighborville will be the first game that uses EA’s trademarked Frostbite engine to appear on the Switch. Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Complete Edition is rated E10+. Kick some grass on March 19.
