Google Aids Japanese Zombie Invasion

Have you ever wanted to lead a group of zombie attack survivors through the wilds of Laurelhurst Park?

Too damn bad. The Last Guy doesn't do Portland, Oregon (yet).

What it does do though, is give PlayStation 3 owners a chance to lead people to safety among hordes of zombies, insects and monsters on a real-time map of Akakusa, Japan culled directly from Google Earth.

It'd be much more rad if it were personally tailored to the area I live in, but that's an argument I can make with any game -- Grand Theft Auto Hillsboro anyone?
