Utilizing exclusive Wii U functionality, the Zombie U demo showcases the story of the game. Playing as a lone survivor in a world ravaged by some unknown disease that has killed all civilization, you must hunt down your former survivor, who has become an infected zombie. Uses the Wii U to look around your environment with the motion controls. Also, there are no checkpoints and no start overs. If you die in the game, you become infected, and are instead re-shifted to a new character, a new survivor, who must navigate to where you died, and kill your former character if need be.
