PopCap Delighted With WoW's Plants vs. Zombies Tribute

PopCap Delighted With WoW's Plants vs. Zombies Tribute

PopCap didn't help make the Plants vs. Zombies tribute in World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion, but it's pleased as punch that it's there.

It came to light earlier in the week that Blizzard had tucked a homage to PvZ into Cataclysm. The tribute was so true to the game, it was suggested that PopCap might have assisted in its creation. As it turns out, it was all Blizzard's doing, but PopCap co-founder and creative director Jason Kapalka said that he was "delighted" by the tribute and was looking forward to trying it out for himself.

Kapalka said that PopCap and Blizzard had a very good relationship and that PopCap's games had crossed over with World of Warcraft a number of times in the past. It was Blizzard that took the initiative with the PvZ crossover, Kapalka said, adding that Laura Shigihara - who composed and sang the Plants vs. Zombies theme song - had recorded a few extra pieces for "something special" that Blizzard was doing with the quest.

The Plants vs. Zombies tribute quest, which is called "Peacebloom vs. Ghouls," is repeatable and has achievements attached to it, because let's be honest here, who really needs to go outside? Cataclysm is scheduled for release later this year.

A favorite of mine...inside another favorite of mine? This is madness!!

Awesome, now we know that there exists nobody that doesn't like PvZ!

Another claim to fame thats for sure! Glad to see they are cool about it ^^

The designer of PvZ explained that he was inspired by the tower defense games in Warcraft 3 custom maps, so why the hell not? You could actually take Warcraft 3, design a map that has a choke point and pretty much play Plants vs Zombies in it. Might as well go all the way.

I wonder what Blizzard surprise is. Having her sing a song similar to the one is PvZ seems a bit unorginal, so I hope it is something completely unexpected.

It might be related to the pet at the end of the quest chain. TotalBiscuit notes that it's a Singing Sunflower, so perhaps that is it?

I didn't watch the whole video as to avoid any spoilers to what seems to be a really fun quest. If it is a singing sunflower pet I'd be so pleased. This actually gives me an idea for a novelty toy sunflower that will dance and sing the PvZ song. Get on it Popcap.

gotta say, thats freak'in sweet.

Totalbiscuit!! Woooooo 1 of the most entertaining casters! \o\ /o/

the PVZ homage is cool too.
