Huzzah. They link back to Joystiq, who note that the sequel will include new "features, settings, and situations," though there's little else to share at this point besides some mysterious quotes included in a press release:

"Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots," said an unidentified spokesperson. "So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan... we're freee anytime. We'll find you."

"There was a time we relished a bracing, hearty blend of zombies, in the morning," said the Flora Forever Foundation's Sonny F. Lower. "But first, a brisk shower and some strategic pruning are required. Tomorrow is near!"
