'The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct' Confirmed For Wii U, Dated For March

That feels pretty close.

Although it was only announced back in July, the stealth FPS based on the AMC TV series is on the way March 29th in the UK, with an expected release date of March 26th for the United States.

Developer Terminal Reality has been plugging away at the game since its announcement, I guess, with producer Glenn Gamble telling Digital Spy that the Wii U version wasn't originally part of the plan, only emerging about halfway through production. The Wii U version will have the benefit of inventory management via the Gamepad touchscreen (developers love allowing you to manage backpacks with touchscreens), Gamble describing the new inventory system as "more elegant" than the versions on the other platforms, the PS3, 360, and PC.

"Survival Instincts" will serve as a prequel to the hit TV series based on Robert Kirkman's long-running comic, featuring actors Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker reprising their roles as brothers Daryl and Merle. Here's the official synopsis:

In the game, players assume the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon. This first-person survival title takes place within the universe of “The Walking Dead” and before the events of the AMC show, following Daryl and his brother Merle on a gruesome journey to reach the supposed safety of Atlanta as the world around them ends. Reedus and Rooker will bring life to their characters' desperate, unforgiving struggle against limited resources, the nightmarish walkers and, perhaps, their fellow survivors...
