PopCap Games has announced Plants vs. Zombies Heroes for mobile. The collectible card game will allow players to collect hundreds of old and new characters from across the Plants vs. Zombies universe.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes will introduce players to new Super Hero Plants and Zombies. The Green Shadow, for instance, is a Peashooter which can defeat zombies with a Precision Blast. The Impfinity, meanwhile, is a Zombie Imp Hero who can create Imp clones during battle. The game will also include characters from the Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 console game, including Super Brainz, Z-Mech, Citron and Rose.

In a letter to fans, Brian Lindley, senior producer of Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, commented:

The journey of PvZ Heroes began over two years ago as a paper card game prototype built in the spare time of our creative director, Devin Low. From those simple beginnings, Devin continued to experiment, and after several months of playtesting and development, the end result is Plants vs. Zombies Heroes; charming and approachable, but rich with depth, secrets and strategy.

Lindley said the game will include more than 12 heroes and hundreds of characters to collect at launch, and will offer both single-player and real-time multiplayer gameplay.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes is now available in select territories, and is expected to launch worldwide later this year.
