By Chris Morse
Not only is a full-fledged Zombieland console video game on the way, fans of the zombie comedy can also look forward to a mobile title later this year as well. Coming soon is Zombieland: Double Tapper from Sony Pictures Television Games, developed in conjunction with Tilting Point and Metagame Studios. See below for the official description of the game.
A wacky road trip through iconic American locations that have been overrun by the undead, the upcoming Zombieland: Double Tapper idle RPG will feature a large roster of heroes to collect, upgrade and customize, including familiar faces from the films. Players will have no excuse not to “nut up or shut up” when armed with a huge arsenal of unique weapons that offer fun and creative ways to dismantle hordes of zombies.
Zombieland: Double Tapper will be released on both iOS and Android mobile devices. Pre-registration for both platforms is live now on the game's official website, but further release details are not yet available. You can, however, check out an official trailer for the game below! We'll be sure to keep you posted with all the latest details whenever we hear more.
