ZombiU has WiiMote Support

I was in the store earlier and saw ZombiU and checked the back of it to see what all controls were supported, to my VERY FORTUNATE SURPRISE, I found that it will in fact Support WIIMOTE AND NUNCHUCK Controls!!!! This just solidified my purchase of ZombiU!! Can't wait for it now :D

I don't want to be the Jasonguy here, but that option might only concern the co-op portion of the game. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

I sure hope not. I'm sure the game is decent with Dual Analogs but I want it to be good and the only way that is capable with a FPS in my opinion is with Pointer Controls. The Tab can still be used as the backpack so there's no loss there.

This game seems like it would be unplayable with the Wiimote, having to constantly put it down to pick up the Gamepad, seems like a headache. So I would have to agree with Epak, I wouldn't bank on this being for the main game. Sometimes options are just not possible and the game is designed around using two screens.

if i remember right nintendo did say the developers had all the options open to them -eg control settings -as wiiu is infact capable using all wii acessories alongside any wii u branded ones as well ,

so im not surprised

Is it just for local multiplayer? Since 4 tablets is not possible.

#11 Posted by manicfoot (2625 posts) -

Back when Wii U was first announced, Ubisoft demo'd a game called Zombies Ate My Neighbours, which eventually evolved into ZombiU. They showed off a multiplayer mode in which the player with the Wii U tablet placed zombies on a map in an effort to try and kill the other players (who were using Wiimotes and Nunchucks).

It's possible that this mode made it into the final version of the game. I highly doubt you'll be able to play through the campaign using the Wiimote control scheme because the dual screen set up is such an integral part of the experience Ubisoft is shooting for.

The game was called 'Killer Freaks from Outer Space' and it was the Killer Freaks that the player with the Gamepad controlled. Somehow Ubisoft went from "Killer Freaks" to zombies.

'Zombies Ate my Neighbors' is a SNES game.

Use the WiiMote and Nunchuck to aim and move and when you need to use the gamepad touch screen, just pick it up. It actually wouldn't be hard at all and it could add to the experience if anything because you'd then feel like you have a gun (WiiMote) and a backpack/decoder (Gamepad)

Or stand the Gamepad next to the TV and use the pointer on it when you need to.

I don't know, sounds like it could be a hassle.

Aw man! PLEASE let me use the wiimote for single player. I want proper shooter controls (aka, not dual analog) and I want want M+ zombie clubbing!

A much simpler method would to do like metroid prime 3. Holding down a button would bring up on the TV whatever would usually be on the gamepad, over the action. So instead of poking through stuff with a touch screen, you're doing it with a pointer. Same thing really.

#22 Posted by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

Why couldn't the content which normally appears on the gamepad just pop up as a UI on the screen?

Need to enter the door code, it pops up on the screen and you punch it in.

Need to look through the inventory, just do it the traditional way.

That's how I'd do it if only I were in the position of power and authority I so deserved!:lol:

Because it would completely defeat the purpose of what their going for. They don't want to just do Dead Space, where things keep moving while you fiddle with the inventory, they want you to look away from the screen.

I know mate, I'm just thinking of how it will play if someone selects a controller other than the GamePad.

Earlier you said:

So I would have to agree with Epak, I wouldn't bank on this being for the main game. Sometimes options are just not possible and the game is designed around using two screens. Sepewrath

I do agree with this. But at the same time, I'd be surprised if they boxed you into the GamePad. You make a good point that the option may not be possible. I have little else to say ... I just hope the option for other controllers is there.

If they included an option for WiiMote+Nunchuck it wouldn't make any sense to force the player to use the Gamepad too.

That's great! I hope to use Wiimote/Nunchuck and Gamepad. I just love using Wii controls but the Gamepad option is looking pretty interesting too. Same for Pikmin 3 Thanks!
#31 Posted by GunSmith1_basic (9763 posts) -
the game is all about the gamepad controls. I seriously doubt you can play the game with wiimote controls.

I've yet to see ZombiU do anything that couldn't be done with a single screen.
#33 Posted by Sepewrath (28690 posts) -
Doesn't matter if that's true or not, the game is designed around the concept of using two screens. Its just like when SS came out and some said, you could do the sword combat with an analog stick. Maybe you could, but the game was designed around motion plus so an analog stick wasn't an option. That is likely the same case with the Wiimote.
#34 Posted by meetroid8 (21139 posts) -
SS used M+ to do things that couldn't have been done without it. I'm not going to judge this until it releases, but it doesn't seem to be the same case at all. The biggest use of the second screen is that pack, which is just a menu. *Designed around* is a bit of stretch.

What are they doing on the gamepad that can't be done on the tv? So you fiddle around your inventory on the TV instead of the gamepad...

That works as well. That could be the Simple WiiMote Control setup but if you want to actually use all the accessories and feel like you're carrying a bookbag that you actually have to take off, my method works fine too although it's a more advanced setup but it's not a difficult setup. It could be the Elite WiiMote Control Setup where you have to use all three controllers. It'd be a standard WiiMote control setup but when you need to look at items or do an action, you just pick up the gamepad. I like your idea as well though

One of the game's gimmicks is realism. The second screen is meant to take your focus off the action while doing specific tasks, but you still have the option to look at the main screen to check if the surroundings are safe. It creates tension in a survival horror setting. That's one thing I guess.

If they cop out & allow wiimote to be use..it will be sad, after insisting the game was design around & for the wiiu gamepad.

Again, why the need for the second screen? Why not just have your inventory/whatever pop up on the TV over tha action? Just hold Z to bring up your inventory and release to put it down. You could use the pointer instead of your finger then. AND it would allow you to use the wiimote, so there would be vastly better aiming plus motion+ bat controls and the like.

I haven't seen everything their doing with the gamepad, so I'm sure they will surprise us with some really inventive uses, but it just seems like I'd rather play with the wiimote. It's just like pikmin3. It uses the gamepad, but it seems to run a lot better with the wiimote.

The game uses the whole dual screen stuff for most of the scares (your eyes on the game pad only to have a zombie pop up on the TV) so I sincerely doubt it will be usable in the single player as that would brake the game. It just isn't designed that way.

I doubt that will present the same level of realism and tension when your view is right beside your inventory. You can easily see movement as opposed of focusing on a seperate screen/view. I forgot to mention also that managing these tasks also forces your hand off the buttons, putting you in an off-guard position. With the pointer controls you mentioned, you're basically always in position and all you have to do is release a button. This gamepad method really sounds like an inconvenience in a typical game but I feel it works in a game like this where there is an extreme emphasis on survival.

Meaning say goodbye to WiiU exclusive...being able to play without the need for WiiU gamepad, just means they're probably planning to release it on XBOX360/PS3. :P

PS: I do like wiimote as a control for this type of game, Im just saying they should stick to what they say.

The Wiimote didn't work well for any games since casual motion controls suck.
I would have loved for Zelda Skyward Sword to have superior normal controls, but that still would not have fixed the linearity.

I loved Metroid Prime series when it had normal controls. Also, RE4 is much better with a normal controller too. Fact is that no games are good with motion controls.

#50 Posted by NeoStar9 (1745 posts) -

The Wii mote is only for the multiplayer modes. Since it's just all shooting and multiplayer game has one playing using the gamepad and the other using the TV with either the Wii remote or the new pro controller. The single player is gamepad only though. Ubisoft has said this in the past.
