Here's a brief walkthrough video for Ubisoft's big Wii U exclusive, ZombiU. Designed to demonstrate the more gimmicky gameplay features, you'll get a taste of how you need to use the GamePad to get around Olde London Towne.
The game fundamentally looks good, going from something I'd have written off to a promisingly atmospheric horror shooter over the past few months. I'm still totally on the fence about the touchpad stuff though. It's very interesting, so long as it doesn't feel intrusive.
However that goes, I can't wait to finally get my hands on it and give it a spin. It's shaping up to be one of the most dominant must-haves for the Wii U's launch window.
