After hitting the PC, iPhone and being recently announced for XBLA, it was only natural to assume that PopCap would be bringing Plants vs. Zombies to the Nintendo DS. And if you did, you would be right. The game was announced this morning with a release date slated for sometime in January 2011. GameStop is already taking pre-orders at $19.99, which will get you some new and exclusive game content not found in the other versions.
