The lights are on
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.
Stay tuned for the next developer diary, which will talk about London and the game's story.

this looks friggin awesome! wow
This game is one of the few reasons I'm interested in the Wii U. And I like the idea of when your character dies, he's dead. Seeing him/her as a zombie is awesome. Really looking forward to this.
It looked like the player swung the controller with the on-screen pickaxe toward the end of the video. I'm not so sure that I want to swing around that big square controller.
Gimmick or not, this game looks really cool to play, from what I've gathered from this video. Very excited to see how more games will utilize all the other possibilities in gameplay and such from this new system.
I am sold on this...what a great game to release the WiiU with. It's gonna sell an awful lot of units on day 1
Looks really interesting. Can't wait to learn more about the story and progression. I am hoping successfully returned supplies work towards upgrading and improving the stronghold. Kind of hoping there is multiple strongholds and they can come under attack. To me that would be very immersive, but even if those notes are not hit the game looks amazing.
