Ubisoft promises eight Wii U games including ZombiU at E3

Ubisoft is to throw its full weight behind the Nintendo Wii U when it launches later this year, with eight titles for the new console.

Wii U gamers will be able to look forward to games such as Just Dance 4 and Rabbids Land, Assassin's Creed III, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, Rayman Legends, Sports Connection, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013, and new adult title ZombiU.

All of the games will make use of Wii U's touch screen tablet controller, the company announced at its E3 press conference on Monday.

ZombiU is based in London, and is like a cross between the TV series The Walking Dead and the film 28 Days later. Using the Wii U GamePad one player will move zombies around the map while other players try to avoid them. Judging by the trailer, the game will have a very adult theme to it.

Another exclusive game will be Rabbids Lands, which will present four different mini-games which are much more all-ages and friendly. 

Up to four players will be able to play at the same time, with one using the Wii Gamepad in very much the same way.
