Set in a (hopefully fictional) zombie apocalypse, you have to band together with other survivors in order to take on the zombie horde. Zombies are pouring out of every window from New York to Moscow, and you've got to be quick on your feet with a weapon if you don't want to join them in their ranks.

Play on the TV, in tabletop mode, or in handheld mode with up to four players to get in on the action. Online play is supported as well, so long as you've got a Nintendo Switch Online membership. Playing on multiple consoles isn't an issue either, as the game supports cloud saves. At least that way, you know your save data will be safe should an annoying zombie ever get their rotting hands on it...

World War Z is available now on Nintendo Switch for $49.99 USD.
