Walking Dead FPS confirmed for Wii U, out this March - new screens

Game also shuffling onto Xbox 360, PS3 and PC

Activision has confirmed that a Wii U version of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will launch alongside the previously announced Xbox 360, PS3 and PC (digital-only) editions.

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. For more on the title, check out our just-published The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct preview, in which we said that, if it avoids some familiar potential trappings, it could turn out to "be a taut and tense first-person survival game".
