The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Coming To Wii U
Posted by Andy Green
More zombie hoards incoming
Wii U has its fair share of mature games already with the likes of Assassin's Creed III, Darksiders II and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge - which will be out in Europe 11th January. Chances are if you're a fan of fighting through hoards of undead monsters you picked up a copy of ZombiU when the new console launched, and now we know of at least one other survival horror game that will be coming in 2013.
Activision's The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will be coming to Wii U in Europe on 29th March. The title is a port of the game that's already in production for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC but will naturally add new features - such as allowing the player to access their inventory on the fly via the GamePad.
Speaking to Digital Spy, the game's producer Glenn Gamble explained:
We were over halfway through the project when the Wii U thing started coming about.
We didn't want to change the game, because the game had already been established, so we tried to say, 'What can we augment with the Wii U version?'
Gamble says the Wii U edition of the game is much more "streamlined", allowing the player to access their backpack at all times in a way that probably won't be too dissimilar to the way ZombiU implemented its inventory system.
Since it's available before the end of March, the game is classed as a Wii U launch title - in Europe at least, as we're yet to hear of a North American date.
