The 3DS may be coming to the end of its lifespan but games like Ice Station Z prove that it still has the capacity to surprise.

Developed by Wobbly Tooth Games and slated for release on November 3rd, Ice Station Z is a open world zombie survival game which boasts both single and multiplayer modes, with local and online support included.

The moody trailer above shows a great deal of gameplay, such as the ability to ride various vehicles, use different weapons and the need to find food to survive. Voice and text chat is apparently included as well.

Parallels will obviously be drawn to games like DayZ, but given the hardware it's perhaps wise to expect a somewhat simpler experience on Nintendo's handheld.
