This is kind of odd. Considering the gargantuan, universal appeal of this game, it’s weird that PopCap has quietly released the title without much fanfare. Over the last couple of weeks, Australians have acted like guinea-pigs, getting to play an un-finished, early release of the game in order to test PopCap’s servers and monetisation strategies. Clearly that test run went well, because the game is now available in other App Stores. Of course, because our local versions of any of these sorts of things are woefully inadequate, Plants vs. Zombies 2 is not available in the South African App Store; neither is the first game, actually. But, if you own an iOS device and you’ve made yourself anything other than a US iTunes account, then you’re doing it wrong. Very, very wrong.
