Best Nintendo Games List – #40 ZombiU

Developer: Ubisoft Montpellier

Publisher: Ubisoft

Platform: Nintendo Wii U

Release Date: November 18, 2012

It’s important to have something of quality for the launch of a new console, and Ubisoft making an exclusive title for the Nintendo Wii U (one that was rated M for Mature) was certainly as far out of left field as possible. Such is the case for the first-person, London-based survival horror titles that saw you fend off against zombies at the risk of becoming one yourself! That’s right, it has a mechanic where a single bite creates a permanent death, and it’s only when killing your zombified avatar as another survivor that you get your lost gear back.

It makes brings a sense of urgency when traversing through a disheveled city, using the GamePad controls to break down barriers, unlocking locks and scanning for items. The jump between controller and TV screen could be the difference in making it through or just becoming one more in the herd.
