The game is due for release in later this month.
The spiritual successor to doublesix’s Burn Zombie Burn, All Zombies Must Die! sees the main character Jack living out his fantasies as a gamer in a town overrun by zombies. Packed with playful humor, All Zombies Must Die! fuses many gameplay elements to create a frenetic action-packed RPG shooter offering the player and up to three friends, a non-stop Zombie-killing mayhem. The game’s RPG elements allow the player to level up characters, complete comical side quests and collect items to craft new weapons.
“We’re very excited to partner with doublesix on the XBLA launch of All Zombies Must Die!” said Mona Hamilton, vice president of marketing of Square Enix, Inc. “This fun and humorous zombie RPG has received significant interest from media and consumers, and is an excellent addition to Square Enix’s diverse catalog of games.”
