Activision's Walking Dead FPS will be shooting up the Wii U this March
It seems as though publisher Activision will be bringing their upcoming Walking Dead game to Nintendo's Wii U console. However, when speaking to Digital Spy, producer Glenn Gamble explained that a Wii U version of the game wasn't planned from the get go...
"We were halfway through the project when the Wii U thing started coming about. We didn't want to change the game, because the game had already been established, so we tried to say, 'What can we augment with the Wii U version?' "
Gamble then explained what will make the Wii U version of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct separate from its console counterparts. With the use of the Wii U's GamePad the producer explained it would make the inventory experience "more streamlined"...
"With the Wii U you have access to your backpack at all times, so you can tap what weapons you want, you can drop stuff. It's a lot more streamlined."
Finally, the article left off saying gamers in the UK can expect to take on the undead when The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct hits stores on March 29 (which is a Friday). As for North America, games typically become available the Tuesday prior to the UK release, so Survival Instinct should be releasing on March 26 for PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U
So g1s, what do you think? Does Zombie U have some competition? Or is this just going to be a lame cash-in on the popular AMC television series? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
