Plants vs. Zombies 2 takes you back to the '80s with its latest update

Plants vs. Zombies 2 heads back to the 1980s with its latest music-themed update.

It's the Side B of the Neon Mixtape Tour and it comes with two music genres to battle along to. Expect it to get, y'know, really '80s up in there.

Dr. Zomboss also gets enthused to really crank up the volume and bring the best boogying rotting flesh to the garden.

So yes, you'll see new zombie types rockin' around. These include the Breakdancer Zombie, an Arcade Zombie that spawns the 8-bit Zombie from its cabinet, and a Boombox Zombie.

But the plants aren't without their own additions.

The Sporeshroom spawns after killing a zombie. The Garlic forces zombies to change lanes after biting into it. And the Intensive Carrot restores plants that have been destroyed by zombies.

You can get this update for free if you've already downloaded Plants vs Zombies 2 on the App Store and Google Play.
