Ubisoft has revealed the box-art for Wii U exclusive Zombi U which is expected to launch alongside the system sometime later this year. Ubisoft also uploaded a brand new Zombi U trailer earlier which showcases how some of the game’s unique features will be utilised by using the Wii U GamePad.

  1. Meh, wouldve been better without the giant zombie, and just a destroyed London, maybe with black “corruption” taking over the eye for the outer edges

    • How in any shape or form is this a L4D clone? I mean seriously? L4D is a co-op level based shooter, where you just mow down RUNNING zombies, and other mutated enemies, with no survival horror aspect what so ever, and it all based on teamwork and a stroke of luck.

      This only similarities to this and L4D is its in First person, it has zombies, and theres a stroke of luck required as well.

    • Sorry, have you played this game? No? Then don’t make claims about it. And if you’d read anything about the game you’d know it was nothing like L4D, which by the way an overhyped and overglorified game.

              • i didnt say you didnt have friends. i said you dont have friends to play it with. if you actually play it with 3 other people you actually know IN REAL LIFE. its a blast. i hate people like you that just bash a game and have nothing about the game to talk about other than “ugh it’s shit, nope did this, it’s shit” rather than talking about the actual game, you just use generic adjectives to describe your butthurt. something like “i didnt really like the fluidity of the aiming, or the way that most of the zombies would just run at you rather than being able to sneak around them” but no. you just go to “nope it’s shit.” my opionion on you? you’re shit.

                • I’ve played it with friends before, and I really don’t enjoy it, it’s so damn repetitive, and the special “quest” sections (like getting the fuel for the car) are painfully tedious, and the environments are linear but too open for it to be clear enough where you’re meant to go next.

                  But that’s just my opinion.

            • LOL. yeah i was thinking something along those lines. valve games really do kindof suck if you’re playing them on a console. i mean just look at the difference between the pc and console versions of tf2.

    • I thought trolls pay more attention to the games they hate on. Whatever, cling to your opinion if you want, other people will enjoy this game and laugh at your comment.

      • ZombiU has had confirmed multiplayer. Someone reported on it, I don’t recall who. But it’s PvP based, with one person placing zombies using the WiiU GamePad and someone else trying to fight through the level.
        … or did I make that up? I swear I read about that somewhere.

        • I’m sure that was reported at some point, since I remember something like that too? But I also remember there being a Dark Souls kind of multiplayer, like when people get infected they get to play as the zombies, to strengthen my theory I saw notifications in one video popping up saying: ”This person got infected here”. ”This person” being the username, and ”here” being the in-game place.

          • from what I know, if you get infected your zombified body can go to another player’s world, then this player may kill you and get your survival kit, but you don’t play as a zombie. that’s what I heard.

    • Yet L4D’s graphics aren’t dated? Most texture in L4D are out dated, ZombiU’s textures are more detailed plus it doesn’t have a co-op option so it makes your argument of calling it a L4D clone seem a lot more invalid.

      Plus, Assassin’s Creed III, Mass Effect 3, Aliens Colonial Marines, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and Darksiders 2… that is all

  2. Should have left the eye out, and have a zombie, or have the eye with an incredibly small pupil and blood veins around it. But who gives a f***, it’s just boxart, something you’ll never look at after you’ve read the title of the box and memorized how it looks.

      • If you have a 2TB HDD, otherwise it’s not worth clogging up the space just to not look at a not so good looking box-art. Seriously, don’t we just have the games lying on a shelf, so that we could read what’s on the sides? That basically eliminates the point of a title on the front.

        • Ermm..why would you need a 1TB HDD? Let alone a 2TB. I have about 4 games on my ps3’s harddrive, and its only a small HDD (120GB i think)

          • WiiU is reported to have 8GB flash storage, and 25gb disc size. You’ll need external storage for retail size downloaded games.

          • Max Payne 3 was how big again? 25GB I think, I meant that if you want to download a lot of games, and that the games are large in size, you’d better have a big HDD for you to last for 6+ years. Also, movies, pictures, music, etc. also need space. And downloadable games aren’t always as small in size as you’d think they are, especially on the Vita (Sony, stop changing the save formats, they are expensive as fuck.).

    • Haha, I sure hope so! I mean, I can understand what they’re trying to achieve with the design but though the concept is thorough it just doesn’t work.

  3. I feel that I’ve seen this same concept somewhere else and it seems a little cluttered with both the eye and the zombie. It’d be better if the opacity of the layer the zombie is on is lowered or if the eye was taken out completely.

    • It’s just nice when games have nice box art. Especially good games. I mean, look at the Scribblenauts Unlimited box-art. It’s gorgeous.

      • But I don’t see a problem with this one. I don’t even mind the blue case. What I get from it is than it’s first person. You are seeing it from someone’s eyes. Ah well, sorry if i offended anyone with my last post! I meant no harm.

    • People tend to judge a book by it’s cover. In this case it’s oviouslly a box art. It’s good to have a box art that grabs people’s attention. It’s sorta important today because there a so many games out now, and it needs to stand out just like NSMB2. Personialy I don’t think it will effect anything; besides its what’s in the inside not out.

  4. I like it but the hat on the zombie kinda ruins it. its obvious as is of the location with the big ben in the background. the hat is just tacky.

  5. that cover will make the game sales decline by 200%.., Nintendo und Ubisoft!! No, no, no, no and no again!! that Cover looks so stupid, cheap and horrible (in a bad sense).., kick out the cover designer right now!!

    • Rule #1: Don’t judge a game by its cover (since that cover is for the European Wii U [PAL version]). Rule #2: The game sales of ZombiU is not gonna drop by 200%. And Rule #3: Don’t believe in rumors that you read on the internet.
