While Australia is still awaiting the release of the Wii U, Nintendo's next big console, America has been fortunate enough to get their launch early. One of the more promising titles to come out of the launch was ZombiU, a survival horror filled game developed by Ubisoft. The title will use the new gamepad controller, with several key game mechanics being pushed to the secondary screen. Players will also find a local multiplayer to help waste even more time killing zombies.
We got our fellow survivor Chad Drake to grab a cricket bat and head out into the wastelands of London amidst the zombie apocalypse and check out just what ZombiU has in store for us.
Whilst not being one of the coveted Ninty iconic characters in a launch title that fanboys are hungry for, it looks like this will satiate the hordes with its gritty realism (as much as it possibly can be in a title about fictional zombies), tense environments and an immersive control set-up thanks to Wii U’s GamePad. So, as it turns out Zombie U is more than just a blunt tool with which to bludgeon the heads of your zombified friends -- it’s to a wannabe zombie survivalist what a flight simulator is to a pilot in training.Click here for our in-depth review.
