Konami's given a release date to its top-down undead blast-o-thon Zombie Apocalypse, and it's next week! Xbox Live users get the title Sept. 23, or Thursday. PlayStation Network users will see it Friday, Sept. 24.

The game is $9.99 on PSN, 800 Microsoft points on XBL. For your ten bones, you get 55 levels and 11 weapons, not including the wood chippers into which you can lure your shambling, leprous prey. The game also features cooperative online play. If you'd like to know more, check out our preview.
