New House of the Dead game on Wii

New House of the Dead game on Wii

Exciting news for fans of light-gun shooting games. At the Leipzig Games Convention, Sega has announced a new entry in the HotD series - The House of the Dead: Overkill.

Exclusive to the Wii, Overkill is a prequel to the existing games and will be jammed full of arcade style shooting and gore. In terms of storyline, Special Agent G and Detective Washington explore strange happenings in Louisiana, only to find.. yep you guessed it, zombies. The trailer has some kind of B-movie feel to it:

    Overkill features
  • Slow Mofo - Activate time slowdown to enhance headshot opportunities.
  • Coop play - Team up with a buddy to play together on the same screen.
  • Remote reactions - Pistolwhip and other melee attacks for when the zombies get too close using the Wiimote

Screens and a small box art are already available, so take a look at the game's page. HoTD: Overkill will be released early in 2009.

I like House of the Dead, really excellent series.

I enjoyed the part where the girl licked the remote. Not because it was sexy, but because I can't imagine anyone ever doing that who didn't have a mental defect.

"YOU GIVE THEM BULLETS!" It has an over the top 80's action movie vibe. Sweet vid.

Wow. That made me cry blood. Awesome.



The name hotd does not really apply considering they are not in a house like 1-4 but whatever right! The game looks cool and there is not a hotd game I haven't picked up, so I'll get it.

I hope they bundle the original HotD somewhere in this game (since we didn't get that with HotD 2 & 3) and hopefully if this game sells, Sega could focus on House of the Dead 4 for Wii.
