A brand new co-op shooter based on the Zombieland movies has been announced for Nintendo Switch. The game will be called Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip.

Developed by High Voltage Software, the game is inspired by the story, characters, humour and horror of both Zombieland and the upcoming Zombieland 2. It's set after the events of the first movie and is said to be "a ridiculously fun top-down twin-stick shooter" featuring local co-op multiplayer for up to four players.

You'll be playing as the heroes from the original film - Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock - as well as new unlockable characters from the upcoming sequel. You'll also need to use special abilities, an arsenal of weapons and more to survive against "huge numbers" of the undead; there's a story-based campaign mode, wave-based horde mode, and ongoing daily and weekly challenges to enjoy.

It'll be launching on 15th October this year, conveniently meaning that players can get their hands on it three days before the new movie drops.
