March 6, 2013Written by Jason Dunning

If you read the title of this article and thought to yourself, “Zombie Tycoon 2? But I’ve never even heard of the first one!,” that’s normal. The original Zombie Tycoon launched as a PS Mini way back in 2009, and even though you may not have known that, it actually went on to become a best-selling title on the service.

Based off the success of that game, developer Frima Studio will be bringing Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on April 30th via the PSN. The real-time strategy sequel will then come complete with Cross Play and Cross Buy.

For an introduction to the game, here’s the official description of Brainhov’s Revenge:

Pick your side in the epic war between two evil masterminds: apprentice-gone-rogue Orville Tycoon and his army of heavy-duty zombies, or his vengeance-thirsty mentor Professor Brainhov and his frantic masses of agile undead! Post Z-day, Tycoon’s mad machination to extinguish all life in Finkleville has almost reached its apogee. During the final siege on the human fortress, his former mentor makes a sudden comeback, seeking retribution for his apprentice’s betrayal and eager to reclaim his rightful place as alpha mad scientist. Only one question remains: who shall win? Slow zombies, or fast zombies? Find out as undead armies clash in both the immersive single player campaign and the competitive multiplayer mode!

The multiplayer mode pits Brainhov and his fast, ravenous zombies against Tycoon and his army of shambling, slow zombies in a one versus one deathmatch. Pick a side and unleash your zombie hordes to destroy the mobile base commanded by your rival scientist. To achieve that, you will be given control of two packs of zombies and a powerful monster unit to gain control over various buildings, level up and ultimately face off in an epic battle!

Are you going to be picking this up at the end of April? Or is all of your money going towards Soul Sacrifice that day? Let us know in the comments below.
