PopCap Vancouver’s weird shooter is the first Frostbite game on the Switch

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville comes to the Nintendo Switch on March 19, with a new Complete Edition.

A news release from Electronic Arts said that this will be the first game developed for Switch with the company’s Frostbite engine.

“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 at 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.”

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is the third game in PopCap Vancouver’s Garden Warfare spinoff. It launched in October 2019 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, and got its last game update a year later. The Complete Edition coming to Nintendo Switch will allow players to unlock all of the customization content and characters from the original game, which was rolled out in a seasonal model.

The Switch version is being co-developed by the Polish studio QLOC.
