The Xbox 360 version of PopCap's adorable tower defense title Plants vs. Zombies will finally see the light of day on September 8, according to IGN UK.

The confirmation comes from an event on August 2--a date many outlets presumed a sequel for the lawn-loving title would be announced.

The new Xbox Live Arcade version of the popular casual title adds a cooperative mode, where two players can fight off a horde of zombies on one lawn.

PopCap tells MTV Multiplayer the Michael Jackson lookalike in the popular casual title has been removed from the iPhone version due to objections from the late singer's estate.

The "Dancing Zombie" was originally modeled after the King of Pop's famous iconic look in the classic 1983 music video "Thriller."
