  • Review ZombiU (Wii U)

    Fear Factor

    ZombiU definitely has a lot to prove. After Red Steel - Ubisoft’s hardcore offering at the Wii’s launch - failed to win over the masses by making large promises it failed to deliver on, public response to ZombiU has typically been laced with skepticism. Now that the game has been unleashed and is happily infecting shiny new Wii U...

ZombiU News

  • Video Nintendo Land Will Likely Never Come To Switch, But That's Okay

    Catching up on the Wii U launch title

    The Wii U had a pretty dull launch line-up, all told. There, we said it. Between the likes of New Super Mario Bros. U, ZombiU, and Mass Effect 3, there was a general consensus that while all of these games are undoubtedly good, they didn't exactly set the world on fire and justify the Wii U as a "must-have"...

  • Video Remembering 10 Years Of Wii U

    Looking back on the console's launch and legacy

    The Wii U is now ten years old. Crazy, right? The successor to the WIi launched back in November 2012 to - shall we say - lukewarm reception. Nevertheless, for fans of Nintendo, it remains a quaint and beloved entry to the company's console line-up, introducing the likes of Splatoon, Xenoblade...

  • News Ubisoft Will Now Close Online Services For Three Wii U Titles In October

    Shut down was originally planned for this month

    Back in July, Ubisoft announced it would be shutting down multiple online services for a selection of its older games on 1st September. This included the Wii U versions of Assassin's Creed 3, Rayman Legends and ZombiU. Well, we're now past that date - and Ubisoft

  • News Ubisoft Closing Online Services For Three Wii U Titles This September

    To focus resources on "newer" and "more popular titles"

    The Wii U generation saw Nintendo embrace online gaming more than the previous generations, and naturally, third-party developers at the time took advantage of this new focus. Unfortunately, these kinds of services have to eventually wind down, and Ubisoft has decided September 1st is the time...

  • News ZombiU Servers Reanimate After Being Down for Several Months

    Graffiti is back!

    Though it's ancient history now by game industry standards, ZombiU is arguably one of only a few games on the Wii U to fully make usage of the GamePad, and the launch title is still a decent survival horror romp for those who might be interested. One rather neat feature of the game was a form of asymmetrical online multiplayer...

  • Feature Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perfect for Halloween

    Get spooked on the go and at home

    Well, the night is here, when we indulge in dressing up and scares like there's no tomorrow. Halloween has become increasingly popular all around the world, and a decent option for getting our share of spooks is to jump into the action with some suitable games. Despite the - inaccurate - perception that Nintendo...

  • Feature Have You Played... ZombiU?

    Horrifyingly cheap and a strong Wii U experience

    This is the first of a series of articles that are a reflection of a disappointing reality. The Fall and Holiday line-ups on Wii U and 3DS undoubtedly have some treats and games to be hugely excited about, such as The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Xenoblade Chronicles X, yet they're also a...

  • Video Here's How Zombi Shapes Up Against The Original ZombiU


    As we already know, Ubisoft has dusted off its Wii U launch title ZombiU and released it on the PS4, Xbox One and PC at a budget price, minus all the second-screen malarkey which made the Nintendo edition so tense and compelling. The publisher has insisted that the port features visual improvements - despite the evidence

  • News Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamers Need Not Be Too Jealous

    Re-animated rather than brought to life

    ZombiU was a standout game at the Wii U's launch, bringing some excellent horror to the system while utilising the GamePad to enhance the experience. It was a tad rough around the edges, like launch games often are, but nevertheless did a lot of good things. News of its impending re-release on PS4 and Xbox...

  • News Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confirmed For PS4 & Xbox One Release

    Now titled Zombi

    At the beginning of last month, a reportedly reliable source informed Unseen64 that Ubisoft was busy porting its Wii U launch title, ZombiU, to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as it had failed to generate any profit for the French publisher as an exclusive to Nintendo’s latest home platform. While the news was filed under the...

About The Game

An outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors.

This fear-fueled first-person shooter takes all the terror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements, including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.

ZombiU showcases the innovative features of the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad and creates new game experiences not possible on other consoles. The Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad serves as the player’s ultimate survival kit, called the “Bug Out Bag.” The Bug Out Bag is a backpack containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can scavenge from the limited resources available in the devastated cityscape. ZombiU also uses the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad’s touch screen, gyroscope and camera to create a tactile connection between gamers and the in-game world. Finally, ZombiU features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the role of “Zombie Master,” spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in first-person shooter view with the Nintendo Wii UTM Pro controller.
