World War Z Switch


After much speculation, we finally have confirmation that World War Z is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Rumors about World War Z arriving on Nintendo Switch seem to have been swirling around the internet for over a year. After an eShop listing for the game was spotted earlier this week, official confirmation was likely to follow soon after.

Of course, the game is based on the 2013 Paramount Pictures’ film of the same name starring Brad Pitt in the lead role. The movie was an adaptation of the 2006 book by Max Brooks, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. The novel was also a follow-up to Brooks’ earlier novel, The Zombie Survival Guide.
