Escape! Zombie City Set to Infest Japanese eShop

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

The latest from Tom Create

Tom Create is a Japanese developer that may be familiar to gamers who enjoy a lot of download titles from the GO series. The studio has produced DSiWare titles such as GO Series: Earth Saver and GO Series: Tower of Deus, with many being thoroughly decent downloads at a budget price. It now seems that the developer is turning its attention to the 3DS eShop, according to Andriasang, with Escape! Zombie City.

We never said that the studio's output was the most original, and this seems to be no different. Played from an overhead view, you simply move with the Circle Pad and shoot with Y, gunning down hordes of zombies and rescuing the occasional civilian in distress. There's apparently a storyline that involves escaping the zombie infested city before it's blown up, but importantly there are three difficulty settings, a campaign with over 90 stages and 10 levels in an 'Endless Mode', if you just want to shoot the undead without any pesky storylines.

This is due for release on 18th July in Japan, and based on the developer's many appearances in DSiWare we'd expect this one to eventually be released worldwide.

So...it's Undead Storm with an objective? I'm gonna get it :) ! I just hope that endless mode is actually endless.

@Kyuubikid Nintendo's Japanese website lists this as 無限アクション, which basically means "infinity (or endless) action". That should answer your question maybe?

I'm debating on this. I am wondering why NL put an article out for this game. There've been quite a few other Japanese e-shop games that were released recently that didn't get written about.

@Tsuchinoko Probably because this is likely to become part of the GO series in the west as its by Tom create.
GO series: Undead storm didn't look interesting to me but this looks really good so I hope this does get released in the west.

@FonistofCruxis Maybe I don't understand what the "Go" Series is. This game is going to become part of a series when it goes out from Japan? That's confusing.

Hmm, I maybe want this, but I need to see some video before I buy.

@Tsuchinoko A company called Gamebridge have bought various Japnese DSiware games over to the west under the GO series name. Most games in the series a quirky budget Japanese games and they're mostly 200 points but there have been a few 500 point ones. Some of the games in the series were developed by Tom Create and since this is too, its likely to be published by Gamebridge as part of the GO series in the west if they continue the series on 3DSware.

@Shadowflash I'm only saying that because Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D has a "Survival" Stage that only lasts 15 waves. Also, I thought Undead Storm was going to last forever, but there are only 5 "Fears" per level. I want CoD Nazi Zombies style "last until you die" endless without it being CoD Nazi Zombies.

@kyuubikid213 If you want a good endless zombie game,I recommend draculas undead awakening,it has 5 modes that are endless(waves/survival/super survival,rush),it has a ranking system,and has perks(its alot like nazi zombies in ways).
But its $5,no leaderboards,and only has zombies in one level,but there multiple enemies and its fun!
