Guillamme Brunier, Senior Game Producer on Zombie U, has shared new footage of Zombie U, alongside new footage of the game and talk of how the development team wants the game to feel like a slow-paced, oldschool survival game:



Zombie U will be released for the Wii U sometime this fall.

  • Am i the only one that thinks Zombie U won’t be all that fun? The Touch screen item menu seems annoying, especially when fighting One bite kill zombies.

    • James Beatty

      People seem to like it. It won’t be for everyone though, it’s an actual hardcore game. The touchscreen thing is made as a feature of the game to add to the tension. By looking at the touchscreen you can get yourself killed. That seems like an awesome mechanic. I’m not sure about how good the game will be though, Ubisoft probably assigned a “D-team” to the project and they probably don’t have a big budget. The concept seems cool but i’m going to wait for reviews

        It’s from Ubisoft Montpellier. The same team that developed Beyond Good and Evil, Rayman Origins etc.

        • James Beatty

          Really? I haven’t heard that. 

  • timanel1

    i like the part where he says  you only have one life

  • FlameEmperor

    Love what I’m hearing so far. Already on my to get list.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    This game is getting hyped, seems legit and hardcore enough, just hope it doesnt turn out like Dead Island (not a bad game, but too buggy and over hyped, the trailer was better), hope it’s live up to the hype!

    BTW, I heard that it’s suposedly coming to PS3, seems like shabby info, but still wanted to ask just to be safe.

    • James Beatty

      With a name like ZombiU (wii U) plus the heavy implementation of the wii U gamepad it doesn’t seem very likely. If it’s successful then a sequel might come to different platforms though

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m going to die so much…

  • “… fear is at the center of the experience.”
    “… bring back that slow paced, scary moment in the survival horror genre.”

    I like it. I LIKE IT.

  • Rohan Viajar

    I’m glad we can take a break from all that fast paced action horror stuff that’s actually toned down the “horror” in horror genres if you ask me.

  • Feel like a Residen Evil 1 rip off, says me.

    • Rohan Viajar

      huh?.. >_>..

    • s07195

      I thought people actually wanted something like Resident Evil… x.x

  • Mazdian

    Looks promising. Really like how they integrated the Wii U controller into the gameplay.

  • Zeonsilt

    This looks exactly like Left For Dead,just slow-paced.
    p.s. Looks like a good game.

  • D*mn those jump scares.
    I wonder how many times do you get to switch charac again? I mean, you got to died a few time in the story ryte?
