The new game inspired by the Zombieland movies, Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip, has launched today on Nintendo Switch.
Developed by High Voltage Software, the game is set after the events of the first movie. It's described as "a ridiculously fun top-down twin-stick shooter" which includes local co-op multiplayer for up to four players and a Horde Mode that should keep you hunting zombies for hours on end. As you'd expect, you can play as your favourite heroes from the original film - Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock - as well as new unlockable characters from the sequel.
As mentioned above, this one's out today; you'll find it waiting for you on the Switch eShop for £34.99 / €39.99 if you're interested.
Are you a fan of the films? Will you be giving this game adaptation a go? We hope to have a review of the game for you soon, so if you're unsure, feel free to keep checking back for that before buying.
$40?! Oh hellll no. At best it looks like a mobile port.
Look how shiny and amazing that one on PS4 looked at that was near its release (Trying to remember the name) and that was cheaper.
I would like to see someone make a point-and-click adventure game where I get to play as these characters:
That's right I want to see a Zombie Land Saga video game.
It looks a lot like Dead Nation on the PS3/4 which is a great game. If it drops from that really expensive price and is anything like that then I'll definitely give this a go.
I'll buy it when its 20 in 2 months.
I'd pay 15 dollars max for this game. Hope they release Hunter: the Reckoning because I'd happily pay 40 for that GameCube zombie twin stick classic from High Voltage Software.
Twin stick shooters with zombies can be fun, but this game doesn’t look worth £35. Anyone remember “I MADE A GAME WITH ZOMBIES IN IT”?
@LaytonPuzzle27 I too would like a Zombieland Saga game, though it should probably be part idolmaster parody.
Oh wait, It's published by Gamemill.
The publisher Gamermill and the word "quality" don't go hand-in-hand. Although I appreciate Gamermill more than say BigBen or Maximum Games, whose catalogue of games are the lowest of low quality.
High Voltage are fairly talented as developers go, however, so it still might be good. There's a reason you don't see as many movie tie-in games anymore though...
Vastly over priced.
Like many others it seems, I was about to take a punt on this because I love the original film, then I saw the price.... are they having a laugh? In this day and age a game that looks like that doesn't get to sell for 35 quid.
Who doesn't want a portrait of Eisenburg staring at them while playing a game.....? O.o
@SmaMan Fairly talented? No, in their "hayday" they were mediocre at their very best. They had a slight hit with Conduit due to hype and the fact that the Wii hardly had FPS games dedicated to it but gamers did not stick around for its sequel due to how mundane the original was. They then tried to do "Left 4 Dead but you...monsters" for the Wii, no publisher would bite because it was just so god damn generic, it look meh and looked like a budget PC title.
HVS are purely a work for hire developer and arent worth anything more.
On mobile this would be free to play but the publisher has it in their head that because this is on Switch and its a licensed game they can make bank on the Switch.
They forget that this is no longer the GX/PS2/Xbox era and that does not fly anymore, the forthcoming Avengers game got a ton of flack because it initially looked like trash! A licensed title can get some publicity but really needs to be any good to do well.
$40? Look, you don't have a game like this with 15 total enemy types sold for even HALF the price of a full game. There are better mobile titles that are like $2
Check out Dredd Vs Zombies on mobile. It's great fun and it's free.
I enjoyed Zombieland back when I was a freshman in high school. That was then. Now I just find it boring brain dead humor from nearly 15 years ago. There's the same novelty as going to internet archives and looking at old memes. It lasts about 5 minutes.
@LaytonPuzzle27 Zombieland Saga was way better than the American Zombieland movies. I absolutely agree.
@ChessboardMan Yeah can see that work with a parody version of The Idolmaster.
@Heavyarms55 Am someone who is never into horror films or idol shows but Zombie Land Saga is an anime I can enjoy. Also despite some websites saying its age rating is 17+ sure the anime has its moments but to me its more into ages 13+ in my perspective.
@LaytonPuzzle27 Really?! Sites are labelling it 17+? Perhaps the blue ray has some scenes that didn't make the TV release. Otherwise yeah, 13+ is absolutely more accurate.
And like you, I don't normally like zombie or idol anime, but I had a blast with Zombieland Saga. Great humor, very over the top and lots of fun slapstick.
40$ is too much for this game. If it's good, i'm getting it on sale sometime.
@ChessboardMan Absolutely loved "I Made A Game With Zombies In It" I even have an mp3 of the song on my Zune that he put in the game, I had a blast with that game.
