That’s right, the US-based studio’s undead-slaying experience has officially made its way to Switch so you can now mow down waves upon waves of the walking dead on the go. Hooray for portables!

From what we can gather from the video above, the game appears to run surprisingly smoothly on Nintendo’s latest hardware. Interestingly, the team that developed this World War Z port are the same folks who brought us the Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which also received praise for running pretty well on Ninty’s popular gadget.

Of course, World War Z first launched on PC, Xbox One and PS4 back in 2019, and is a licensed video game inspired by 2013’s eponymous Marc Forster infection movie starring Brad Pitt.
