Earlier today, the release date and pricing details were finally announced for Nintendo’s new Wii U console. Now there are people out there who tend to argue that a two-screen interface is a misstep, but it’s hard to keep such an opinion after watching any trailer for ZombiU. We’ve marveled at the creativity of the game’s developers before, and seen plenty of evidence that the touchscreen controller can add an entirely new dimension to the overall gaming experience, but this video still manages to impress.
From the handheld touchscreen, players can do everything from equip items, manage inventories, pick locks, check maps, and even snipe undead baddies from afar. It’s likely that this is just the tip of the iceberg though, and there are still things Ubisoft hasn’t shown off, so stay tuned for more trailers in the weeks to come for more info on this launch day title for the Wii U.
