In the midst of a zombie apocalypse in London, gamers must learn how to use the Wii U controller to survive.

In this developer diary, ZombiU producer Guillaume Brunier from Ubisoft Montpellier talks about the studio's old-school approach to horror (including perma-death) and how the Wii U's controller is an instrumental part of the experience.

ZombiU is expected to come out some time this year for the system. For more on the game, check out Tim's hands-on with the title.
