Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse with the New ZombiU Deluxe Set
The Wii U ZombiU Deluxe Set comes with all the contents of the standard Wii U Deluxe Set, plus the addition of the ZombiU game, a black Wii U Pro Controller and a collectible booklet featuring artwork from the game and never-before-seen developer commentary. Nintendo Land will also be included as a downloadable game, rather than a packed-in disc. The jam-packed ZombiU Deluxe Set will be available at a suggested retail price of $389.99, a savings of $70 if all items were purchased separately.
In addition, people who purchase this bundle are automatically enrolled in the Digital Deluxe Promotion, a program that allows Wii U owners to receive 10 percent back in points for each download they purchase in the Nintendo eShop. These points can then be used for future Nintendo eShop purchases.
Created by Ubisoft, ZombiU is a survival-horror, first-person shooter game that puts players in the shoes of a human survivor in the middle of a terrifying plague that has infected modern-day London and turned everyone into flesh-eating zombies. ZombiU continues to be well-received by audiences and features second-screen game play that uses the Wii U GamePad controller to manage items or scan for hidden secrets in real time.
The Wii U Pro Controller is compatible with many games on Wii U. In ZombiU, it can be used by another player for local multiplayer matchups. It sports an ergonomic design and is more akin to a traditional video game controller, complete with dual analog sticks.
Wii U is the revolutionary new console from Nintendo that launched on Nov. 18. Since launch, Wii U has sold more than 3 million systems worldwide, as well as more than 11 million software units. Featuring a unique second screen on the GamePad, Wii U is the home to the largest launch library in Nintendo history, including games like New Super Mario Bros. U and SiNG PARTY from Nintendo, and Assassin's Creed III and Just Dance 4 from Ubisoft. Upcoming games like LEGO City Undercover, Pikmin 3 and Wii Fit U demonstrate that Wii U has something for every type of player.
