PopCap Games is finally bringing out the sequel to Plants vs. Zombies this summer. Arriving first on iOS devices, Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time will release July 18.

As you can see in the first trailer for the tower defense game, you'll have a lot of new weapons at your disposal. It also looks like you'll be stepping out of the backyard and into various times throughout history.

New touch-screen power-ups are included, allowing players to break the fourth wall, and interact with zombies directly or through the plant defenders. Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be free to download, but will also include microtransactions that will allow you to upgrade your game faster.

More details should come out of E3 in a few weeks, including some of the new locations and weapons we'll be using to topple the hordes this summer. PopCap should also have more info on release dates for other platforms soon, so PC, Android, Xbox, and PlayStation owners shouldn't have to wait long to discover when they'll be able to join in on the fun.
