Ubisoft showed off how the Nintendo exclusive zombie game will work.

The Wii U GamePad will be used to complete a number of unusual activities in the first-person horror game. You'll use the GamePad for sonar, inventory, as a scanner to investigate the environment, to break free of zombie grasps, snipe enemies via a first-person scope view, and even to hack doors. We also got to see how the GamePad will let players take a picture of themselves and then zombify their own image.

The appearance of the game at the Nintendo conference was the first we've seen of ZombiU in action (although Ubisoft says this game started out as Killer Zombies From Outer Space, and is now completely different), and if nothing else, the game looks to be bringing some hardcore mature gaming to the Wii U.
