Wii U-owning fans of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning TV series, The Walking Dead, will be wanting to shuffle down to their local games emporium today, as Activisionís Wii U game based on the hit show has just been released. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct features the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus, and his brother Merle, played by Michael Rooker, on an unforgiving adventure through the walker-infested Georgia countryside. With both actors reprising their TV roles in the game, developer Terminal Reality shows its commitment to delivering a gaming experience that stays true to the characters, tone, and storyline of the TV show. The gameplay is very much first-person survival of the fittest, as players scrounge for food, water and ammunition in order to survive against both living and dead nightmares. The story takes place before the events of the TV show, as the brothers try to reach the supposedly safe city of Atlanta, amidst apocalyptic chaos. Once again, great to see that the Wii U gets a version of this game, along with the PS3 and Xbox games.
