Peashooters at the ready - PopCap's most excellent Plants vs Zombies is finally hitting the Nintendo DS in the UK.

Originally released in the US a couple of months ago, the quirky tower defence game is now getting a UK release with all the extra trimmings on May 6th.

Published by Mastertronic Group, this latest version comes with multiplayer options, exclusive touchscreen mini-games and special DS achievements to earn.

There's oodles of undead-blasting fun to be had. As we noted in our Plants vs Zombies DS review, it's, "an effective blend of tower defence and strategy that simply oozes with charm."
