EDGE - Amid the hype and hubris of the Wii U’s launch run-up, very few could have expected the console’s stand-out title at E3 to be a hardcore survival-horror shooter. Pitched alongside Nintendo’s candy-coloured in-house offerings, ZombiU couldn’t have looked more out of place. Indeed, with its harsh permadeath mechanic and lumbering pace, it rails against the industry-wide trend toward inclusiveness and mass appeal. There are no checkpoints, no health bars, no casual modes. This is the apocalypse, and no one gets an easy ride.
