    This is going to be that game that I’m getting on the first week the Wii U console

    • Dantheman

      Chris, sorry to say this but zombiu was made instead of killer freaks. It seemed ubisoft underwent a glitch throughout the game when it was being developed. Ubisoft went back to the drawing board and created zombiu

  • Joe

    Is this game canceled???

    • Eric

      No, but was turned in ZoombieU

      • Pokemon Master#1

        You misspelled zombie or zombi

    • hunter santana


  • Adam

    Awww, come on Ubisoft couldn’t you make Killer Freaks aaaand ZombiU?

    • SanPharaoh

      I said the same thing. Killer Freaks just seems like something that would create a world of gaming euphoria.

  • Pokemon Master#1

    I like this better than ZombiU

  • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

    Dear Ubisoft,
    As awesome as ZombiU looks, this game just seemed like it had a lot more creative potential, and in a more humorous but awesome style as opposed to the serious survival battle of ZombiU. I personally am more interested in the more humorous approach that the original design seemed to capture, so please do us a favor, and make Killer Freaks from Outer Space happen. I’m sure there are many other people who feel the same way, and would love to have the Freaks come back. You don’t have to give up one idea for another and we would love it if you would produce both of these games. ZombiU as the zombie horror, and Killer Freaks as the humorous alien counterstrike game. There are already a number of horror zombie games, but not as many games that have a sole (or one of few) survivor fight back against aliens in a creative and funny way. It seemed like a great style of game that many people would appreciate, especially those not as interested in horror games. I know that I have lost a day one purchase out of this, so please, make Killer Freaks from Outer Space happen.
    Thank you,

  • poo

    i was so keen for this game! 🙁

  • gNat

    Zombie U is a better name. The old name seemed childish and i believe this is an M rated game that wants to compete with Dead Space and Resident Evil.

    • WiiUPlayWithMe:P

      Yeah, ZombiU, sure, but Killer Freaks was a newer take on aliens. I’ve never seen aliens like this before. Plus the character was kinda funny. I think that would have been a great experience, for the less serious, thrill seeking but not really too scary type of player. It was kinda nice seeing a lighter hearted shooter. Ubisoft should return to this idea some time in the future. Call it FreaksU, and have this be a shooter series that takes on a new enemy every time it revamps, maybe with a new attitude each time too. Edgy struggle for survival with the zombies, dark comedic battle against the alien terror, maybe the third could be a war against mythological creatures. Call it MythIC, I don’t know, but I just came to really like this random tangent idea of mine. Hey Ubisoft, listen up. Make this happen and I won’t even care about royalties, just make these games happen

    • Steahl

      Childish? The name is such a 50s B-rated Sci-Fi movie, which makes so awesome! I hope they pick up this project again because the concept is so cool!

    • TexMex134

      the Name “Killer Freaks from outer space” makes it sound like it would be a humorous game actually, and the title sound a little old fashioned, like it reminds me of a 50’s movie title.

    I feel the same with the rest of you. I was really looking forward to Killer Freaks from Outer Space. ZombiU looks like a great game, but Killer Freaks looked really special, something new and different, funny and fresh in its own unique way. This was going to be a day one purchase for me. i read once that Killer Freaks was going to be a multiplatform game in the beginning and then ubisoft decided to release it for Wii U. During Ubisoft’s E3 presentation, this was the game that I was looking forward to hearing news for but they said that the Killer Freaks project evolved to Zombi U… I really hope that they release Killer Freaks at some point. They already got the video game engine for this game, let’s hope they consider it. I believe many future Wii U owers will buy this without a second thought.

  • LaLaLoopsy

    this info is outdated. they changed the game to zombiu and it looks awesome but this was more creative they should’ve made BOTH!

  • CaCaPoopsy

    ZombiU should’ve been in London as is, and this could be like in Italy or Mexico or Germany or South Korea or something. This game has alot of potential.

    • Jesusxd96

      Mexico is epic lol that the aliens are eating tacos while ylu shoot them xD

  • Jerm1234

    So they arent making this game?

    • jamin

      nope. during the making of Killer Freaks, Ubisoft changed the Freaks into zombies. In my opinion, i like zombies better 😀

      • Chris

        But Zombies are over done now a days, sure they are cool but there is a lot of zombie games on the market. Killer Freaks would have been a fresh take on the alien genre and it looked like loads of fun.

        ZombiU look awesome, but this game just looked like it would have made a great change to the Alien genre of games

  • moises

    i think zombiu is better. i was planing to get zombiu when i buy the wiiu

  • nameUcan’thate

    ZombiU looks preeettty epic, but I really think freaks would have gotten the Wii U alot of respect as an exclusive title.

  • Maverick-Hunter

    I personally feel like changing this game to zombiu was a good idea I personally am sick of hearing that nintendo is for kids

  • killerdoggydo

    how many players will zombie u be

  • Badaz86

    ubisoft needs to make this game if not i’ll be 1 sad badaz86.
