The agonizing wait for a Plants vs. Zombies follow-up is almost over.

It’s been four years since Plants vs. Zombies was originally released for the PC. Since then, the charming tower defense game has made its way to smartphones, DS, XBLA, PSN, and Vita, and fans have been waiting impatiently for a sequel. Very impatiently, as this video shows. After years of questions about a PvZ sequel, developer PopCap made it official today: Plants vs. Zombies 2 is coming this summer.

Appropriately titled Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time, the sequel will be released in July 2013 for an indeterminate number of platforms. The teaser trailer has no details other than a release window, but it’s a pretty humorous way to announce a game.

PopCap originally revealed that a sequel to its 2009 hit was in development back in August, which was unfortunately right before the developer laid off series creator George Fan. Hopefully Fan’s departure, as well as PopCap’s 2013 and 2012 layoffs, won’t negatively affect this long-awaited sequel.
