Zombi U gets one death survival mode, Dark Souls hint system

Zombi U features a neat respawn system that, once you die, puts you in the shoes of a different survivor trying to flee an overrun London. But now developer Ubisoft has upped the stakes with a crushingly difficult survival mode.

Nintendo World Report states that the Wii U survival horror title will come packed with a survival mode that sees you trying to complete the game with one life.

That’s it. No respawns no second chances, just one life and a sea of zombies between you and your goal.

To help ease the pain, Zombi U will also give players the chance to leave hints and helpful messages for other players, Dark Souls-style. Players must use their Wii U tablet as a scanner to read the hidden messages on surfaces in-game.

What about you? Is that something you would try, or does it sound like a fool’s errand?
