It begun with a sweet looking trailer in London and God Save the Queen, however it wasn’t long until a zombie apocalypse brought things to a stunning crash.
What was it? ZombieU, a brand new WiiU title which sees you cutting zombies heads off. Not sure we’ve ever seen anything like this on a Nintendo system before.
The survival-thriller puts players in the middle of a modern-day London, where an outbreak has infected the population and turning them into zombies. One player can use the Wii U Gamepad to move zombies around the map to hinder the first player.
Ubisoft says that ZombiU “takes all the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre”, before adding in its own original mechanics.
Details have also emerged on how the gamepad will work, acting as the “player’s ultimate survival kit”, says Ubisoft, “Containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can carry.”
“ZombiU is a dark and daunting game that gamers will love to play again and again,” said Ubisoft producer Guillaume Brunier.
“ZombiU takes advantage of the Wii U’s one of a kind capabilities and will be a launch title that every gamer will want to sink their teeth into.”
