The publisher has also announced a Walking Dead: Survival Instinct release date of March 29 in the UK.
On the subject of the Wii U version, producer Glenn Gamble told Digital Spy: "We were over halfway through the project when the Wii U thing started coming about.
"We didn't want to change the game, because the game had already been established, so we tried to say, 'What can we augment with the Wii U version?'
"That's where it's basically a more elegant inventory management system. With the Wii U you have access to your backpack at all times, so you can tap what weapons you want, you can drop stuff. It's a lot more streamlined."
Additionally, Activision released a new batch of screenshots for the game, which you can see below.
