Cartoony top-down shooter All Zombies Must Die! arrives on PC and PlayStation Network later this year, developer doublesix has announced.
It's the spiritual successor to 2009 PSN effort Burn Zombie Burn!, combining weapons-based arena combat with some light RPG elements.
Tasked with blasting your way out of the undead-infested town of Deadhill, you'll have four characters to choose from - a gamer, a girl, a mad scientist and an alien.
"After the success of Burn Zombie Burn, we've been looking forward to dishing up a new serving of undead craziness but this is no straight sequel," commented doublesix creative director Jim Mummery.
"All Zombies Must Die! has its own unique ingredients with weapons-based arena combat, weapon crafting, character development, a whole lot of questing and much much more – all mixed in with a huge portion of zombie action."
The release date is down as Q4 2011. Though it's currently only confirmed for PC and PSN, the developer apparently has plans to bring it to Xbox Live Arcade at some point too.
