Wii U’s Zombi U infecting other systems a possibility

The Wii U-exclusive Zombi U may not be so exclusive, after all. Ubisoft is very much open to bringing the game to other platforms, though it doesn’t sound like there are any concrete plans to do that just yet.

Speaking to IGN at E3, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key said that the game “at its core was designed to be a great Wii U game” and that to make it work on other systems the developer “would have to change a lot of what makes the game cool.”

“And I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know?”

He adds: “When we launched the Wii we had a game called Red Steel that was exclusive to the Wii and it was designed for the Wii. We talked about bringing that to other platforms, and we always kept coming back to ‘what makes the game cool isn’t what would make it cool on those other systems.’ The brand itself we generally try to exploit everywhere we can, but I think for now it’s going to be a really, really good Wii U game.”

Zombi U was announced at Nintendo’s E3 press conference on Tuesday and was one of the more interesting Wii U games on show. See the video below for some gameplay.
