Back in December last year, we brought you the news that Zombie Army Trilogy would be making its way to the Switch. Now we have a firm date for the launch - indie UK studio Rebellion has announced that the cult Sniper Elite spinoff will be available both digitally and at retail on 31st March.

Here's some more information about the game from the press release:

Travel to 1945 and slay on-the-go as you face off against the massive hordes that comprise Hitler’s Nazi zombie army. Use sniper rifles, machine guns and shotguns to rip through the waves of undead, and take on the demon dictator himself in an incredible final battle!

Zombie Army Trilogy comes with everything previously released on consoles. Survive 3 intense story campaigns and take on Horde Mode, all available either in singleplayer or in drop-in, drop-out co-op for up to 4 players.

On Nintendo Switch, Zombie Army Trilogy offers brand new features including local wireless co-op, motion controls, Pro Controller and HD Rumble support. Zombie Army Trilogy also supports Nintendo Switch’s new friend invite system.

The Zombie Army series has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide.

Our sister site Push Square reviewed the trilogy a while back on PS4, saying:

Zombie Army Trilogy is an enjoyable co-operative shooter that's a lot of fun when played with others. Unfortunately, it runs out of steam all too quickly, giving you a severe dose of déjà-vu once you realise that you're playing very similar encounters, with only the backdrop changing. As a result, you'll have had enough of shooting zombies in the noggin well before you reach the end of its campaign, and while you'll look back fondly on the early hours that you spent with this title, you'll wonder if it was really worth bringing it back from the dead...

Perhaps one to think over, then? Let us know if you plan on picking this up on Switch later this month with a comment below.
